See the Big Picture and What’s Coming Next with Project Types

The project card tells you a lot of information. One of the first things you’ll notice is the project type located in the top left-hand corner.

Project types tell you what type of work it is that you will be creating.

Glancing at the project type helps you understand the kind of content you’ll create, without having to click into the project for more details.

Why are project types important?

  1. It shows the tactics that contribute to your marketing strategy.
  2. It helps inform others for easier delegation.
  3. It highlights project frequency so your strategy can be more balanced.
  4. It allows you to create filtered sub-calendar views. (More on this later.)

Keep Everyone Accountable by Delegating Project Owners

You can also use the calendar to delegate project ownership so everyone knows who is responsible for the project. This helps you:

  1. See who is working on what at a glance.
  2. Allocate work effectively.
  3. Keep yourself accountable for completing things on time.

Notice the project owner is present on the calendar card.👇
