How can I create a timesheet in German?

The Mobile Project Manager v1.0.0 primarily supports English. By default, all the outputs will also be generated in English. However, if you need, you can change the output report language to German or Chinese, respectively.

To be able to do so, you have to open your iOS Settings and find the App MobilePM. Open the MobilePMs settings and scroll down to the setting parameter “Report language”. Then change the value to the language you want. For example, select German as the current report language:

Mobile Project Manager

Next time you create a report such as timesheet in German, the language selected will be used.

Project Example 1: Managing My Project

Project situation: The objective of the project is to design and implement an information management system. It starts from April of 2015 and must be finished at the end of December in the same year. The project team is organized in two teams: management team and a team of subject area experts such as business consultant, software developer and tester etc.

Suppose you are engaged as a project manager leading the management team, which includes one business analyst and one chief architect. Both should support you in terms of business and technical topics in running the project.

This example includes the project plan for the management team and other supporting information such as holidays planned and action plans for each team member. The plan itself represents just the first cut in the planning session. Feel free to modify it and see what happened.

The project plan allows you to check the feasibility of the plan in terms of utilization planned for each team member and task scheduling. It is also possible to exploit plan alternatives, if required.
