SharePoint task management issues

  • SharePoint task management issues George2

    I am using SharePoint Server 2007 Enterprise with Windows Server 2008 Enterprise. I have the following requirements about `Task Management and want to know whether SharePoint Server 2007 can implement such feature.

    And if not, what kind of Microsoft or non-Microsoft product could achieve such goals (and could integrate with SharePoint Server 2007). I prefer Microsoft product because I have requirement to integrate task management feature into SharePoint, and I think using Microsoft product is easier for integration with SharePoint. :-)

    Requirements are,

    1. For Task Management, task dependencies can be shown, and a big task can be divided into a couple of small tasks;
    2. Task assignment is based on organization hierarchy. i.e. a department manager in organization chart could assign tasks to his employees, but not employee of other department managers.

    Thanks in Advance!

  • I know that Brightwork's pmPoint will do #1. I'm not sure about #2. Are you wanting a single task list that everyone's tasks will be in? Why not break it up by department and then just roll up the tasks to a different page if you need that type of visability? If you break it up by departments and then have an exec view that rolls up all of the tasks, then I'm pretty sure that brightwork will do what you are asking.

  • MS Project with or without Project Server will meet these requirements and provide much more. With these tools you can use multiple hierarchies so that tasks can be presented in various groupings to meet the neeeds of various users.

  • I am newbie in SharePoint 2010. Here is what I'm trying to do... I have portal users (active directory integrated).

That's all. I have a SQL table which includes the user's department, email and department manager info so that I can map user from AD account name. User's manager is not found on AD in our structure.

I'm at the point now where I am running the SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard. The thing that is bothering me is that the configuration wizard runs without me needing to enter any information (Service Accounts, Database Server, Admin Site Port, etc). Should I have done
