How to set up a project plan using AceProject

Free project planning for small businesses

A great idea is only the start of a new business venture. We look at how to keep a project on track at all stages of its development using a free online planner.

Step 3. Click ‘Users’ in the sidebar to access AceProject’s user settings. For now, only your Administrator account will be listed here, but the free Basic package lets you create up to five user accounts. Click your Username to edit your preferences, then click Update.

Step 4. Next, you need to assign accounts to any colleagues who will be collaborating with you on work projects. Click ‘Add a user’ and, as you did for yourself in Step 2, fill in as many of the information fields as you can. Repeat this process for each user account that you want to add to AceProject.

Step 5. Click ‘Account Info’ in the sidebar and choose Branding to personalise your workspace. Here, you can change the colour of the interface and add your company logo to the header. We’ve chosen not to alter these settings, but it’s an easy task to accomplish later.

Step 6. To begin a new project, click the ‘Portfolio: All Projects’ tab at the top of the window. In future, you’ll be able to select which project you want to work on from the list that appears here. For now, only an example project appears. You may wish to peruse this later as you start to get used to the software.
