Tutorial and project wizard
After logging in, users have three options to create a new project.

- Importing data from

GamePlan has a tutorial and project wizard to help even the most novice user get quickly up and running. When a user initially launches GamePlan for the first time they are automatically presented with a very brief tutorial geared towards teaching the user how to use GamePlan in under five minutes.
For those new to project management, there are also a few types of sample projects that can be used as templates if needed. Creating a project from scratch will likely be fairly easy for anyone with even basic project management experience. When importing data, GamePlan allows users to preview what is being uploaded. Once a project has been created, it can be templated for future use and then further adjusted.
Visual project planning and management
There is a truth to the old adage that “a picture is worth a thousand words”. Many of us find it easier to demonstrate or depict something by drawing it out in a way that anyone can find easy to understand. GamePlan’s visual planning workspace makes the process of planning projects and monitoring progress a breeze and puts everyone on the same page right out of the gate. The visual workspace becomes extremely valuable when dealing with projects that have a large volume of tasks.
