Project Browser

Effortlessly navigate to each of your DropTask projects and gain a high level overview of progress and status from within the Project Browser.

To access your Project Browser

1. Start by going to the Projects tab in the main tool bar. Then, select the grey Browse Projects icon on the top left hand side next to your project name.

2. Your Project Browser will then open. This is where all of your active projects will be displayed, with indicators showing the number of tasks that are in progress, overdue, completed and not started. Accessing a project is easy, simply click the project that you would like to open.


3. A great benefit of the Project Browser is that it allows you to see when a project was last updated, to help you determine whether or not it is still active. The time and date that the project was last updated will be evidenced under the project’s name.


4. This view also allows you to gain a quick overview of work belonging to other project members. This is represented by the small number on the member’s avatar, which indicates how many tasks they’re assigned to in the project.
