Project KickStart takes the frustration out of starting a new project. It steps you through a thinking process that makes thinking up the tasks of a project fast and easy. When you do this up front thinking, you'll find that your project goes faster and smoother. Nothing is left out. Project KickStart is a stand-alone application that you can use to brainstorm, plan, schedule, and manage projects. With the new "done" column you can mark tasks as they are completed. It can manage small and medium-sized projects from start to finish.
Project KickStart also links to project management programs, such as Microsoft Project and other Microsoft Office Applications like Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. It also links with MindManager and ACT!.
Even if you develop your project in Project KickStart, you may value bringing the project data into one of these other programs. For instance, in Word, you can prepare a proposal based on your project plan. Excel can be used to estimate costs. The link to PowerPoint users to quickly make presentations based on their Project KickStart plans.
Project KickStart's links don't take away from its value as a stand-alone program. They provide additional options to extend your thinking and enhance your communication about your project.
For small to medium sized projects, many customers tell us that Project KickStart
is an excellent fit for all their project management needs. Our program
utilizes a unique project planning wizard that guides you through all your
planning phases, including developing a task list, assigning resources
and scheduling tasks.
From that point, as your project gets under way, you can alter any aspect of the project to change resources, dates, or to enter costs, start or finish dates, etc.
We do have a minority of customers that have larger or more complex projects which need advanced functionality such as dependencies, multi-project files, or further cost tracking. In these few cases, customers use Project KickStart and then export to Microsoft Project.

Project KickStart 5 produces limitless presentation-quality reports through its own Report Generator. You can specify the columns of your report and the data you want to see. Some of the reports are:
Tasks & Assignments
Assumptions: (phases, goals, people, and obstacles in your project)
Generally no. The Gantt chart in Project KickStart 5 takes as many pages as it needs to produce a printed report. If you have many tasks or your project spans a long time period, it will not be able to fit on a single page. Here are some things you can adjust to try to fit on a single page:
Project KickStart exports to Microsoft Office applications and to other popular software, including:
You can install Project KickStart on a network for each person licensed to use it. You must install Project KickStart on each work station.
When you are asked where to install the files, specify a folder on the network drive. (Some files will also be copied to the \Windows\System folder on the work station. Also, there will be registry entries on the work station, noting the location of important files and program parameters.)
Then, when each user runs Project KickStart from their work station, they will be able to open up prx files on the network and will have access to shared Libraries.
