Through Lano’s projects and tasks, you can successfully manage your workload and track your contractors’ progress. You can create a project, set its budget and time frame. We recommend you break the project down into multiple tasks and further allocate it to your contractors to make it easier to tackle and maximize your productivity.

Please note: Tasks are available for Contractor Management solution users. However, to access the projects, you should book the Control module. Please direct any questions about this feature to our sales team (sales@lano.io).

Here’s the overview of steps you might want to look at in order to set successful projects and tasks:

Step 1: Before starting a new project, think of your end goal. Your objectives can differ - mobile app development, social media strategy, new market entry, marketing campaign, etc.

Step 2: Once you have picked your final objective (or project), set a budget and time frame. You don’t want to start developing an idea, and then realize it is out of your financial reach or takes much longer to accomplish than needed.
