Some of the activities carried out by the Science-Support Staff included the following:
- Training on the use of Trello
Trello is the most user-friendly project management solution. Its intuitive and familiar drag-and-drop Kanban-style task management interface helps everyone on the team visualize task progress throughout the pipeline. Administrators were able to appreciate the need to track team projects, highlight tasks underway, show who tasks has been assigned to, and detail progress towards completion.
- Training on the use of Confluence -
Confluence is a wiki-based collaboration platform that helps teams communicate and share knowledge more effectively. With the use of Confluence’s Team calendars add-on, one will be able to capture project requirements, assign tasks to specific users, and manage calendars all at once.
