Peago – Drag and Drop to Get Work Done


Peago is a Flash-based project management system that lets groups of users work together on projects and tasks. Thanks to its drag and drop technology, Peago makes the process of assigning tasks and getting them done as quick and painless as possible. Not only that, but Peago’s wide range of innovative features ensure that you’ll be able to complete whatever type of project you’re working on all from within its web-based system. Whether you’re creating to-do lists for members on your team, uploading files to edit at a later date, or leaving notes for a coworker about an upcoming presentation, Peago’s intuitive layout makes it an easy system to learn for users of all skill levels.

Get started with Peago by creating a new project and uploading all the files, notes, ideas, and website links that you’ll need to complete the tasks. Once the rest of your coworkers have signed up as well, you’ll be able to add them as collaborators and set permissions levels that limit the access each individual will have to certain materials and documents within a single project. From within a project, you can set up personal tasks and calendars, which can be edited and archived as each goal is met.

For Gantt Chart fans, Peago offers a similarly styled scheduling system that lets you plan out projects and keep detailed timelines for reaching future goals. What the system does best, though, is give users a way to assign tasks to individuals using drag and drop technology, in a way that is as seamless and efficient as possible. If you’re a fan of Flash who’s looking for a group project management system with a clean and well-designed user interface, then Peago is an application worth checking out.
