Feature rich workspaces allowing users to easily collaborate on projects online to get results
MangoApps Projects are the most feature rich team workspaces for peer-to-peer collaboration. Projects have an activity stream and members list at a minimum, and have 14 additional modules that can be added to suit your unique project’s needs. Projects come complete with timelines, collaborative tasking, localization, and can give you snapshots of progress with customizable health settings, analytics and task reporting. Projects are geared toward getting your projects done in less time with better visibility and communication within your teams, both internally and externally with partners or customers.
