Project Task Duration

A primary design goal of QuickPlan is to help us work RIGHTLY and EFFICIENTLY, to help us keep the project schedule very smoothly and efficiently. And compared to just providing functionality in bulk, QuickPlan helps us manage projects properly.

Scheduling tasks with a short duration is probably sometimes cost-inefficient for project management activities.

For example, if a project schedule contains some tasks with the time periods like 9:00 ~ 10:00.

Different types of tasks require the use of different management apps.

When we manage a project, we need to manage different types of tasks. It is not suitable to track all tasks in a project plan, and the project plan tool is NOT the only tool to manage all project tasks.

When we talk about project "tasks" in general, we may be dealing with different concepts that are different from each other.

The project plan should define the tasks:

Here's how to do it in a project schedule

Please see the details of why we chose a project schedule app..

We do not need to include all the tasks of managing a project in a project plan. If a task is not to manage the team but just a reminder for us to get something done by a certain time, the task app is probably simple and good enough. The effort to manage tasks in a project plan is much higher than in a to-do app.

Comparison between the TODO task and the task in a project plan

In fact, in some cases, it makes sense to schedule tasks with a duration of one hour (or in minutes). However, I would suggest looking at whether there are other better options, as a heavy management process means high cost and long duration. We should balance our processes and tools.

The project plan is NOT the only tool to manage project tasks

Based on the project process and the actual situation, different tools are used to manage project tasks

For short term activities

Not all tasks should or can be written down in a project plan. The project team must weigh the use of the tools.

We have some suggestions.

We disagree that task durations cannot be short. As a rule, it is not ideal for organizing tasks in too short periods. QuickPlan fine-tunes the best valuable features and focuses on helping users understand RIGHT.
