I'm working on a Project Management/tracking site for work. it's driving me up the wall. I've been going around and around trying to get the usability of the dashboard views right using contrib modules, and every time I try another path I end up on a dead end. It's INCREDIBLY frustrating.
I started with Storm -- which is on the way to being somethign that will be really great, but I don't have the time to wait for it to be completed -- so I'm going to have to roll my own recipie. And, so, the adventure begins.
I need to sketch out the content types I see myself needing for the PM site.
- Project Proposal (we are calling it a "Charter")
The Project is the cornerstone of the whole enterprise. At the moment, I'm debating using Organic Groups to handle the "team" aspects of the project. There's a little tweaking and configuring that I will need to do, but it should be very viable.
This week I have started a new project -- building a Project Management, ticketing, and time tracking system for the company I work for. We're an educational services company, and provide a very diverse set of services, and have always operated without this sort of direct tracking and data gathering for our work; as the company grows and evovles, we are finding that we need to operate more like a business and less like a school -- and more and more like a 21st century business.
I've set up this new version of my website as a place for me to bring together ALL of my interests, rather than continue to barely support a pantheon of other web sites. So, on this site you're going to see posts about D&D, posts about Drupal, posts about politics and TV and movies and writing and the occasional moment in my personal life. Whatever I feel like.
More later, I'm just getting started.
