Agile Agenda on AIR

Posted by Charles | May 15, 2008 .

Among the few striking RIA applications that had caught my eyes, Agile Agenda stood out for its sheer novelty. Essentially Agile Agenda is an Adobe Flex/AIR based project scheduling software which comes loaded with a bunch of powerful features that comes handy for every professional. It is a power pack application for project managers who spent larger chunks of their time in managing milestones. As far as, Agile Agenda’s concept goes, it is great resource allocator, task scheduler and milestone manger combined together. It provides user friendly and flexible interfaces for all the above said functions leveraging the concepts of RIA applications.

The utility has a very task specific oriented approach. It schedule tasks based on priority, availability of resources, and time span of the project. On the opening page of Agile Agenda, user gives name of new project as “Title”, name of resources one per line and the start date. User can open existing projects as well, from this interface. Next interface is “Task Editor” where one can manage task with modification parameters like resources and description with colored mark ups to check out the e progress of task ; e.g. if a task is delayed , a red mark up for the same .Other interfaces e.g. “Light Table “is amazing. It reschedules, changes priority of task and reassigns it to different resource. It has slider option to increase time of a task and just a drag and drop operation from one column to other to reallocate it to a different resource .Not only this, current project status as well as you can export project schedule details such as Gnatt view for entire project schedule detail are available at a click of a mouse. Not to forget a resource manager to check availability of a resource, their vacations as well
