Clear agreements make for better collaboration

Working with KYP Project’s planning software requires a new way of thinking and working within an organization. Who is responsible for a particular task? Who is checking off the tasks? When is a schedule updated? And who carries day-to-day responsibility for the schedule? If you wish to use KYP Project efficiently, it is important to make clear agreements. Agreements about responsibilities, working together and recording the progress and status of projects.

Therefore, KYP training also focuses on learning how to collaborate with and within the program. In a training session, we take everyone in your organization through the process of setting up, improving, and changing the way you collaborate. Not only will you learn how to use the tool in the best way possible, but you will also learn how KYP Project’s useful and practical features will help you plan better and collaborate smarter. We also share our vast experience and knowledge about company cultures and about how you, colleagues and project partners collaborate smoothly and smartly within the tool.

How do I create a KYP account?

Creating an account at KYP Project is completely free. Click here to create a free account. Fill in the details and click on ‘Register’. You will then receive an email containing a link to confirm your registration.

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

Yes, it’s easy. Not just weather., but also days off are easy to add with the calendar-bar at the top of the screen. KYP Project will ask you what you want to do to the schedule of that day. Keep the tasks there, move them or extend them?

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!

Does KYP Project also have a mobile app?

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.
