TeamGantt Kickoff Meeting Resources

Being prepared for your kickoff meeting is really important. We’ve compiled some resources in this document that will help get your team going quickly.  

First, you'll want to explain the main benefits of the your whole team using TeamGantt.  Some of those benefits are:

  • Share files at the Project and Task level
  • Communicate with conversations
  • Have simple tasks lists for each person
  • Get daily automatic email reminders
  • Update your progress on tasks

We think following the 4 steps below is one of the best ways to get to know the TeamGantt interface and get comfortable moving around it.  

There is a  separate PDF of these steps that you could pass out at your meeting, or email to everyone. Download it here

We've also put together a great video that explains what a gantt chart is and how to get started using TeamGantt with your whole team. This is a great video to show in your kickoff meeting.


  1. Create Your Account
  2. It’s as simple as clicking the “Click Here to go to Your Project’ link in the invitation email you should have been sent. (If you haven’t received an invitation email, check with the person running this meeting)

    Choose a picture for your account. Make sure your name and email address are correct. Set your timezone as well as the time of day you would like to receive your daily email update and choose a strong password.  

    That’s it! You’re ready to start using TeamGantt!

  3. Log in and use ‘My Task View’ to see what tasks have been assigned to you.
  4. Once you login, you can select ‘My Task View’ from your dashboard to see a simple but detailed list of all the tasks you’ve been assigned, when they’re due, as well as see the completion status of each task.  Watch the 'My Task View' video here:  http://teamgantt.com/video/my-task-view/.

  5. Update your progress
  6. Now would be as good a time as any to update your progress on some of your assigned tasks. Simply click in the percent complete field and update your progress.  Easy!

  7. Leave a comment
  8. You can leave comments at the project or task level in TeamGantt. Click the chat bubble to the left of the project name or task name and leave a comment. Chose who should be notified about the comment and send it. Watch the video on 'Documents and Comments' here:  http://teamgantt.com/video/documents-and-comments/


You could also jump right into the project schedule if you'd like to see the entire project at one time.  To do that, from your dashboard, just click the name of a project to open the schedule view.  

If you would like to open more than one project at a time, just use the select boxes to the left of each project that you would like to open, and then click the 'Open Multiple Projects' button.  The projects will open in the order they are checked.  


You’re now off and running in TeamGantt!
