Plan to Act!
Powerful New v6 Features
The new dashboard changes how you manage your projects, providing a quick overview of ALL your projects so you can preview your upcoming tasks, regardless of which project they're part of.
Take your PKS project to the Cloud with Webplanner.com, and collaborate with anyone, anywhere, and on any platform or device because Webplanner works with PKS files.
Backup & Restore
BACKUP & RESTORE
Protecting your projects has never been easier, as you can now backup all your projects, including attachments, in one password protected step that safeguards your work.
Gantt charts now reflect the new Task features like Status & Priority, and includes auto task linking and dependencies, which previously was only included with Pro versions of PKS.
Enjoy new features like Task Status & Priority, being able to clear as complete with a single click, auto-fit column width, column hiding, and improved task filtering.
Save time by importing contacts from Act! as assignees and export tasks to Act! as activities to seamlessly integrate your workflow between these two powerful programs.
Better Note Logging
BETTER NOTE LOGGING
The new comment logging feature within tasks was improved to be more intuitive and accountable, with new time/date/author stamps for each new comment or edit.
Our new "PKS Updater" utility checks to see if you have the latest Project KickStart build, and updates your program in one simple step if a newer version is available.
Track Costs Easier
TRACK COSTS EASIER
Keep the project on track with basic budget and cost tracking. Project KickStart v6 now displays a running "Total Cost" calculator at the top of the Task List, and at the bottom of the cost column.
Preferences now support default directories for projects, templates, exported files, and attachments, as well as welcome screen options. Weve even enhanced attachment handling.

Project KickStart is a real confidence builder. You sit down with it, and in about 30 minutes, you can put together a very impressive project plan and schedule. Nobody believes it's that easy until they use Project KickStart for the first time. After that, they're converts.

"All too often, though, we find ourselves overwhelmed by our impending tasks and cannot figure out WHERE to start. Project Kickstart makes this dreaded task a snap! By prompting me to identify obstacles, and offering the opportunity to assign people to tasks, it turns chaos into a plan."
R. Henderson - President, Biocon
