Woffice is coming with a powerful Project manager extension which is design to be simple to use and work along other plugins and WordPress. 

The first thing you want to do is to make sure the “Woffice Projects” extension is enabled. To do so, you will need to navigate to the Appearance > Woffice Theming Options > Theme Extensions and click on the “Woffice Project” panel.

Next, activate the option “Enable Woffice Project“.

You now have to create a projects page which will list all the project posts. The post type name is “project”:

The important setting is the Template option. It must be “Projects”.

Once done you can create new project entry through WordPress: 

Woffice Projects can be created and edited through the frontend with no backend access. You need to setup the permissions first to decide which user role(s) can do that. We have an article explaining everything for you here: Permissions

Woffice also gives you many options to customize your projects through the Appearance > Woffice Theming Options > Posts/Wiki/Projects  > Projects tab. You will be able to change the listing settings, add filters, customize integrations and more. 

Who can access my projects? 

By default, a new project is public, any member can access it but you can restrict the projects page to a given role. A given project will become private when it has project members. If a project has project members, only those members can access it. You can change that behavior in the Theming Options. 

Project progress tracking

Woffice has 2 ways to track your project’s progress: 

  • By tasks: project’s progress is changing according to the number of tasks completed. So if 2 tasks out of 4 are completed, the project’s progress will be 50%. The starting and ending dates don’t matter here. 
  • By time: project’s progress is changing according to the current date and the starting and ending dates. So if we’re on the 5th, and the project’s dates are: 1th – 10th, the project’s progress will be 5Ish 0%. The current tasks have no impact here.
