Workspace Settings #

Your first customization occurs when you enter the Organization name during the registration process to start your account. This can be updated at any time by making changes in Workspace Settings.

Organization is your account name. Very often people enter their company name here. Only Organization Administrators can edit this field. Other settings on this page can be updated by either Org Admins or Workspace Managers.

Edit the Workspace Name to reflect your division, department, team or function.

Default Task Status is the status applied when a task is created. “To Do” is a common choice. We start you out with a short status list that you can modify to suit your needs.

Default Cost Code for New Assignments sets the Cost Code that will be applied when new assignments are created. General Task Work is the default Cost Code in a new workspace. It can be changed or set to None.

When Logging Time stipulates whether or not a Cost Code is required when tracking time. When Require a Cost Code is set here members will not be able to log progress without a Cost Code.

Default Assignment Scheduling indicates whether multiple assignments on the same task should be scheduled independently or in order. In Order is the recommended default.


Customizing your Workspace #

Administration & Settings customizing your workspace

LiquidPlanner has customizable features for communication and tracking to help your team collaborate and get things done.

Customize Status to incorporate your own terminology and workflows into task management. A task’s status communicates the steps people go through to get work done.

Custom Data fields are for tracking, communication, and reporting on unique plan attributes. There are a wide variety of data field types to choose from such as dates, text, URL links, picklists, currency, and checklists.

Cost Codes capture categories of work so you can understand where time goes. They can be specific like, design, coding, testing, or more broad like, project workmeetingsadministration.

Rate Sheets establish billing rules that can be used on projects. Once a Rate Sheet is associated with a project, its rules are applied as progress is logged with Billable Cost Codes.

Slack Integration instantly notifies you about task updates so you can take action and keep your project team up to date.

Single Sign-on can be configured by Organizations on the Ultimate Plan.
