It's fast and easy to plan any project.

Project KickStart's 8-step "planning icons" guide you to:

  • Define project phases
  • Establish tasks
  • Clarify your goals
  • Import ACT! Contacts and Users and assign tasks to them
  • Anticipate obstacles
  • Schedule tasks (with built-in Gantt chart)
  • Print reports and send data to other programs
  • When you're done, with one click, your plan transfers to ACT!

Schedule your plan with our Gantt chart

Project KickStart's easy-to-use Gantt chart provides a timeline for each task in your schedule. You can adjust the schedule. Mark tasks “done” for a quick status report.

Print reports, including the Gantt chart, and share them with team members, management, clients and other stakeholders. Include Project KickStart reports in budgets and proposals. Or, save as HTML and post to your Web site.

When you're done, you can instantly transfer your plan to ACT!

With a click of the mouse, you'll find your project's tasks, due dates and assignments in three places in ACT!.
  • Groups shows tasks in each project separately.
  • Task List shows tasks from multiple projects, sorted by date.
  • Calendar also shows tasks from multiple projects sorted by date.

The link from Project KickStart to ACT! 2012 is a "smart" link. If you bring in the same project again, the program will ask you if you want to update the information about the tasks already in. It will update done status, dates, assignments. And, best of all, you won't lose your history working on the project in ACT!.

The Calendar display in ACT! is also significantly improved. Tasks are brought in as timeless, taking up less space in the ACT! Calendar and letting users do their project work and their other work more easily.

Once you export the tasks you have assigned in Project KickStart into your ACT! database, they turn into ACT! activities. Since you have the option to take advantage of the assignment of roles or certain tasks to either users or contacts in the ACT! database, you can then manage the activities from within ACT!

You can use ACT! to:

  • View multi projects during the same time frame
  • Set reminders for tasks
  • View tasks during specified date ranges
  • Notify Contacts when tasks are due, schedule planning meetings, etc.

Import Contacts and Users from ACT!

Project KickStart imports ACT! Contacts and Users (to use as resources.) You don't have to retype the names of people who will be involved with your project. And when you export your tasks, ACT! will recognize who the Contacts and Users are!

Integration with Microsoft Office

Project KickStart seamlessly integrates with Microsoft Outlook, Project, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. This enhances the usability of these popular applications and helps you communicate your plan to everyone on your project team.
