Easy Projects Android app allows you and your team to collaborate and manage projects anytime, anywhere. The application is available as a free download and is supported by all Android devices.
From the app login screen , you will be prompted to enter your credentials: email address, password and company alias in order to log in. If you are unsure about your alias, you can log in to your web version of Easy Projects and take a look at the URL. Your alias will be the first part of the URL, e.g. yourcompany.go.easyprojects.net
When you login, you will land on the “My Tasks” page which is similar to your “My Assignments” on the web version. Here you can view both “Pending” and “In Progress” tasks.
To sort your Tasks simply tap the 3 horizontal bars in the top right of the My Tasks page. Tasks can be sorted by end/start date, alphanumerically or by project.
The status of the task is indicated in the task summary as seen on the “My Tasks” page. In order to change the task status, tap the status.
In order to access task Actions, tap the task title and the Actions will expand below.
By tapping the photos of team members below the task status, you’re able to change the task assignees, just like in the online app. Here, you can easily re-allocate the task to another assignee by tapping on the square to the left of their photo, or add them to the task. Tap “save” in the upper right hand corner, when you’re done. To unassign a user, tap on the blue check mark in the square to uncheck and press save.
You will also be able to assign the task to yourself by moving the slider at the top of the “change assignments page to the right.
In the task controls, you’ll notice the first icon is a clock. This is where you can track time for a particular task. Tap the clock to access the timer or manually log time.
The timer will only remain active for one task at a time. Unless you stop or pause the clock, the timer will continue to run as you navigate through the app.
Once the clock is stopped, you must press “SAVE” in order to successfully record it into the time log. You can also enter time logs manually.
To comment on a task, open the icon with the speech bubble. At the bottom on the page, you’ll find a text box where you can add a comment. When complete, tap the blue icon on the right to send.
From the comments section, you can touch the paperclip icon in the lower-right hand corner to attach a file. You will be prompted to attach a file by using your camera, from photos or videos saved on your phone or Google Drive to upload a file*.
If files are already attached to a task then the number of attached files is listed next to the paperclip icon in the upper-right hand corner and you are able to see the attachments when you press the paperclip icon. From the attachments page you can upload a new attachment by touching the document icon in the lower right-hand corner , or open an existing attachment by clicking on it. You can view most popular file formats, including: png, jpg, doc, xls, ppt, and pdf.
If you are opening a document that’s saved on a cloud platform (such as Google Drive) you will be prompted to sign into that platform before being able to view your document.
To delete an attachment before sending, simply tap the thumbnail image and it will disappear.
To delete an attachment after it’s been sent, click on the image to enlarge. Click on the garbage bin icon in the upper right hand corner.
*You must have the Dropbox, Box, or Google Drive app installed o be able to upload files from those platforms.
