Slingshot Main Features: The Road to Success
Here are the current features of Slingshot, built to unlock your team’s greatness.
- Project Management
Slingshot is the place to boost your projects beyond every milestone and expectation. With its project management features, you can organize all tasks in lists and sections, choosing between different types of views (list, kanban, timeline) to always stay on top of what’s happening. Tasks can be assigned, subtasks created and dependencies set, to maintain alignment on deadlines and clarity of ownership. Timelines are visible and organized, so no due date or blocker along the way is ever missed.
- Content Management
Many teams get tired and lost between multiple apps and storage places, always searching for files, trying to find the feedback, review, or the latest version of something. Slingshot brings together content from any cloud storage your choice like Google Drive, OneDrive, Sharepoint, Box, DropBox (check out the whole list HERE), allows for a drag and drop upload and pinning links. Sharing documents associated with each project has never been easier.
- Data Analytics
Slingshot has a full business intelligence engine integrated within it where you can direct to your data sources and create beautiful dashboards, with full support for machine-learning and cloud-based AI. Тeams are now empowered to make their decisions through data thanks to the app’s analytic functionality – it allows for making better choices, strategies and achieves better performance overall. KPI indicator spreadsheets are converted into data analytics which is then easily shared.
- Chat Discussions
Slingshot’s chat function lets teams have a conversation in the context of the team or project they have entered. Not only do teams get transparency of all discussions and decisions (in a group chat as well as in 1:1 chat functionality), but new ideas and initiatives can also easily be converted into a task, so you never lose the flow of thought and creativity.
