The status quo is a spreadsheet which is emailed round everyone (programmers, managers, senior execs) but that is messy and rarely accurate or timely. Anyone have any ideas where to go for an off the shelf (as much as possible) solution that ignoramuses will have little trouble using and which enforces the assignment tracking and completion of tasks? No doubt, I am perfectly describing some 100k IBM product.... nk --------------------------------------- For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archive of TheList go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
