The Project App for iPad has the feature of using presets, what are they and how do they work?
First of all, in the free version you can in-app purchase the presets, the paid version has them included!
See the following pictures for a quick overview, further down are more details if required.
Presets are shortcuts used to enter meetings by drag and drop. They can be single items such as a single meeting (30 minutes coffee break), a single tasks (task for today repeating weekly on Wednesday) or a milestone for this week.
You also have the option to save resources along with the single item such as a Jog in the park on Saturday from 08:00 – 10:30 with John, Prepare a sales presentation every monday at 08:00 with the sales team in room 02-123, the options are unlimited.
But it gets better! When creating milestones and linking meetings, tasks and resources to them, you can save these from the popup menu as presets; this means that you can add weekly recurring tasks meetings and combinations with a single drag and drop. Preparing for a marathon? Simply make a milestone preset and your training plan will show up in the calendar!
