The terms used in Octaved Flow are based on what is common in the world of work and in project management.
Everything is a project
In Octaved Flow, projects are divided into work packages. Conversely, this means that everything that can be broken down into work packages can be viewed as a project. So the definition of what a project is is broad in Octaved Flow. Internal projects can therefore be viewed as projects in Octaved Flow in the same way as customer projects.
Work packages as a core element
A (greatly simplified) sample project for a customer could consist of three work packages: offer, concept development and implementation.
Team members find out what's coming up for the day through work packages.
With the planning function, work packages can be given a start and end date.
Team members can create their own tasks for their work packages.
Files such as PDFs and images or meeting reports are stored for each work package and are therefore very easy to find again.
The booking of times takes place on work packages.
Each project is assigned to a customer. It can also be an internal customer. So the hierarchy is: Customer > Project > Work Package
Good to know
Work packages can be combined in groups. This enables a clearer structure and further evaluation options.
In larger companies, each department or workgroup can be assigned a project folder so that each department has its own separate area.
