Is it easy to change a day to unworkable weather or other situations?

Can I link multiple participants to one task?
No, you can make one participant responsible for a task. You can easily share these tasks by letting colleagues ‘watch’ a task. In addition, you can share your tasks via the ‘My Company’ feature in KYP Project. Make sure to check our manuals!

Yes, we do! KYP Project has a mobile app, which is meant to keep the schedule with you at all times. This allows you to quickly check the schedule and check off tasks in the app. You can download our mobile app in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.
If I activate a project, will it run indefinitely?
No, active projects run until the last post-it you have put into your schedule at that time. When you activate a project we put a red line on the date your project ends. Until that moment the schedule will be active for all participants. Two weeks before the end of your active period you will receive a message, saying that communication of your schedule will end. This includes the option to extend your project with one or more days.
