First steps with Sablono
Sablono is divided in three sections:
- PLAN - here you can plan and set up your project.
- WORK - here you document the progress of your projects.
- REVIEW - here you can keep track of the progress already done in your project.
Please start working with Sablono in the PLAN section. As a first step you should create or import your project. Either you can create your project entirely in Sablono or you import your data from Microsoft Project, Asta Power Project, Oracle Primavera or Microsoft Excel.
In Sablono you have to assign a template to every deliverable in order to be able to document its progress. Templates are defined workflows which will be stored and therefore can be (re-)used at all times. Thus you only have to create one template for each identical deliverable. After its creation the template can be assigned to all relevant deliverables. This approach saves time but also ensures a highly detailed documentation of the progress of your deliverables.
After you set up your project and assigned a template to every deliverable, you can now start documenting the status of project. To do so please use our mobile applications (Today or Inspect) on your smartphone or tablet. In Inspect you are able to document the status of your deliverables with three values - pending, in progress, done. It is also possible to save notes, meaning claims, obstructions and info, specifically for each deliverable. Of course you can also add pictures to your notes. The Today App works in a similar fashion compare to the Inspect App, but it offers a much more schedule oriented task management. Ultimately, the Today App has one tab for the activities to be executed in the next 7 days and the ones that are behind schedule.
If you want to keep track of your project use the REVIEW section. In REVIEW all the documented data will be collected and evaluated. You will find a project dashboard (see image below) which provides a quick overview about the project, a detailed project progress page, a traditional Gantt chart, and an inspection timeline. Furthermore you can visualize the state of your project using 2D drawings uploaded to the platform. Of course you can always export your project data as a PDF and send it to your team members to keep them updated.
