We love seeing teams deliver projects faster and realize improvements sooner with real-time A3 Reports. We also enjoy seeing frontline employees proactively use A3 Reports for their own improvement projects. So when several customers mentioned similar feedback about the A3 Report format, we had to listen.
Most people are familiar with project deliverables represented as milestones on a calendar, and many find this visual representation easier to process than a list of dates. In stakeholder meetings, or when the project team are discussing deliverables at a high level, a more visual representation is easier to understand (e.g. when standing from a distance or projected onto a wall). We were also told that regardless of how we display the timeline the underlying activity detail still needs to be readily available.
Today, we’re introducing Calendar View.
Activities are displayed in a List View or Calendar View. Users can switch from one view to the other by using the toggle. Calendar View shows the Due Date (or Completed Date) as a Status bar, and the Assignee for each Activity is indicated by a photo.
