Who Uses nTask?
Walkthrough of nTask
Anyone familiar with project management tools will find comfort in a familiar look and feel when they first log in to nTask.
For this walkthrough, let’s create a simple project following project management best practices.
We start by navigating to the Project menu option in the left-hand menu.
Simply click on the “Add New” button, choose Project, and a new dialog will appear to name the project.
As you create your project, note that:
- The project description field can contain rich text as well as videos and images.
- You can assign a color to your project to help it stand out and be more easily recognized in the user interface.
- Project Status, including Not Started, In Progress, On. Hold, Completed, and Cancelled, are set.
There are a number of powerful capabilities exposed to you at the project level, let’s look at the next screen that shows up while creating a project and explore these features.
Is This a Billable Project?
Critical for services organizations.
When you click on the Add/Edit Field option you’ll be impressed by the number of field types you can add to any project, including:
- Single line text
- Multiple line text
- Website URL
And, when you create a new custom field, you can choose if it’s available to a single workspace or all.
This, of course, allows you to re-use the same custom fields on all projects, just a few, or simply this one.
Resources, Tasks, Milestones, and Financial Summary
Project basics you don’t need me to explain.
Along the top right of the project screen, you see a series of icons, one of them is for live chat.
This is a great way to drive real-time project conversations and is especially helpful for any project manager that finds them struggling to herd cats and gather project updates.
Project documents like specs, requirements, and so forth, can easily be added.
Anyone who has ever run a project knows it’s easy to lose track of updates, the audit trail helps everyone keep up to date on what’s being updated or changed in their peroject.

Kanban boards, tasks, meetings, time sheets, issues, and risks.
