In Quire, for the main List and the Sublists that you have created additionally, you have the flexibility to switch among the Nested Tree view, Kanban Board, Table, Timeline, Calendar and Time Tracking reports.

When it comes to breaking down your project into small doable tasks, a Tree list is what you need.
You can view a Tree list as a traditional to-do list with a twist. In Quire, we called it the Nested Tree list.
For big, challenging projects, you can break down ideas into chunks, and further into small, bite-sized pieces. What you then get is a well-structured, well-planned hierarchical actionable list of tasks and subtasks.

When it comes to executing a complicated project, a simple nested task list may not be enough.
A task list is for you to dump all of your thoughts and break big ideas down from big goals to digestible tasks. On the other hand, the Board view aims to help you visually carry out your project step by step.
By moving tasks from one column to another, you can effortlessly manage your team’s workflow and keep every member on the same page.
For example, when a task is in progress, you can drag them from the To-Do column to the In Progress column. Throughout the week, you will get a sense of accomplishment when your tasks move toward the Completed column.

When it comes to scheduling your tasks for your project, the Timeline view can be your new best friend. Timeline view is a horizontal bar chart that illustrates the entire project schedule.
The bars in the Timeline view represent a task in the project and the length of the bars visualizes the duration of the task. It can help you spot the roadblocks and make adjustments immediately for your project in a visual way.
In Quire’s Timeline, the main panel will be divided into two separate views: on the left-hand side is the nested task list which keeps you in context, and on the right-hand side is the Timeline view.
You can resize the task list by hovering over the separating line between the task list and the Timeline view.

When it comes to managing the time spent on each task, each team member can start their own timer or manually enter a time entry for the task. The project manager can later navigate to our Time Report and Timesheet view to get a detailed report and analysis of the team member’s total working hours. With these insights, he or she can actively control and manage the team’s workload and also identify the tasks where the team can improve upon.
