New Integration: Be a Project Management Maven with LiquidPlanner + Box


Ask any project manager, and they’ll tell you that their job requires great tools to keep their team organized and informed about what’s happening. Box is one of those tools, allowing your team to collaborate on the documents relevant to their projects. But that’s only part of the job. For logistical tasks like scheduling and tracking, you need a dedicated project management tool like LiquidPlanner.

LiquidPlanner, the priority-based, predictive project management solution, aims to streamline the way you work with your team, save you money and make sure you hit deadlines. And they give you the tools help you do just that. With their dynamic project estimation, you can create best – and worst – case estimates and set dependencies, then get alerts whenever you’re at risk of missing a deadline.

LiquidPlanner isn’t just for your project manager, though – it’s designed to help the whole team be collaborative (a goal we can certainly get behind). Like Box, it offers a comment stream with @replies and email notifications. It also integrates into your calendar and allows you to add tasks via email, so you can work withLiquidPlanner with the applications you already use.

Of course, our favorite feature of LiquidPlanner is a brand new one – its integration with Box. You can now attach documents stored in Box directly to projects and tasks. This allows you to combine our document management features with LiquidPlanner’s powerful project management solution to create truly effective collaboration at the project level.

You can learn more about LiquidPlanner at Add it to your account today by heading to the Box Apps Directory.

    sometimes feel like you are running from one meeting to another and that your
    time is often wasted. Meetings don’t start on time, the issues aren’t dealt
    with, there is no agenda, there is no focus, nobody assigns any follow ups or
    tasks and of course then they also don’t end on time. An efficient project manager is required for the good management of a project. I think a project manager should

    my company.
