A new way to manage projects and tasks

Within the next few days we’ll be launching the much-anticipated milestones feature and redesigned home/dashboard page for Intervals, our web-based project management tool. This new feature will enable you to group tasks into deliverables, making project management a whole lot easier when dealing with so many tasks.

    i think this was in effect a month or so ago was not impressed by the missing hours per day of tasks on the home page

    Eric, milestones have evolved quite a bit in the last month. It’s definitely worth another look. As for the hours per day, perhaps I’m misunderstanding your point? As the screenshots illustrate, the estimated and actual time per project and per task is displayed on each day. And the time tracked for the week is displayed on the weekly graph.
