I am employed by an architectural practice, and we are looking into ways to manage projects. We are SMB, thus MS Project is overkill for our needs and other solutions either are online only or not PC/Mac cross platform.
A solution that I have been thinking of, would be to have a template in excel with delegated sheets that show:
Overview sheet (linked to OneNote) with a OneNote task list
Project programme / timeline
Staff timesheet/hrs and billable cost
Costing / fee to date sent and fee received to date
Issued drawings / documents to date
Client and contractor contact information
If anyone has experience with creating sheets like this, or knows of any templates that would fulfil these requirements, that would be very much appreciated.
