The Bamboo Project Management Suite provides a single view of the progress, health and risk level of the projects in the entire project portfolio. Project managers can communicate the status of the effort and cost and budget for each project using a configurable red/yellow/green indicator list and an issues meter, bar or pie charts and Gantt view widgets.

Other key features include:

  • The SharePoint In/Out Schedule Board, an easy to use, all-in-one digital whiteboard that's designed to centralize scheduling and contact information for teams and groups. Admins can quickly group, sort and scan the current status of your team members with a color-coded schedule board or review schedule conflicts and future engagements in a Gantt-style calendar.
