Frequently Asked Questions
- Do I need to have a vSoft Studio account to use Project Studio?
You do NOT need to sign in to a vSoft Studio account to use the app. However, certain features such as task synchronization and collaboration will not be available until you have signed in.
- When I click the checkbox on the task list, that task is not marked as completed?
If your task is in a project with custom Task Stages, clicking on the checkbox allows you to change the current stage of the task instead of immediately marking the task as completed. In this case, you can click Done to complete the task.
- What are the Task Stages in a project?
The task stages define the sequence of stages each task in that project will have. You can setup intermediate stages (e.g. “In Development”, “Testing”) between “To do” and “Done”, and each task will have the same stage sequence. At the moment, Project Studio does not support intermediate stages for tasks in no projects.
- What is Group for?
Groups in Project Studio serve 2 main purposes: to categorize your tasks and to have finer access control.
– By organizing your tasks into groups, you can quickly apply a filter to track the progress of only tasks in particular groups.
– Groups also allow you to have finer access control on your project. For example, project managers would have write permission at project level while testers have read permission at project level and write permission on the Testing group. With this setup, project managers are able to create and modify all tasks in the project and testers can create and modify only tasks in Testing group; testers can also see tasks details in other groups but are unable to make any change. Take another example, you might also setup read permission on Release group for outside stakeholders while giving them no project level permission. This allows stakeholders to see the progress on only Release group while unable to make any change.
- How can I import/export/print my tasks?
We are still working on the print function directly in Project Studio.
At the moment, you can import or export tasks in a project into an Excel file and print the file. The “Import from Excel” and “Export to Excel” buttons are in the top right corner of the project details page. You can see a more detailed guide at https://projectstudio.online/how-to-import-export-tasks.
- Are there any versions of Project Studio outside of Windows 10?
We are working on Project Studio on the web browser and other mobile platforms. We will share more details as we make more progress on those new platforms.
- What are the limitation of Basic account?
Basic accounts still enjoy the full sync capability of Project Studio. However, there are 2 main limitations
– The maximum number of project you can have is 5. If you have more than 5, some projects will not be synced and you will receive a notification.
– For each project, there can only be at most 2 free members with write permission. If you have a Basic account and has the write permission in a project, you are counted as a free member against the limitation of 2 free members in that project.
- What happens when my Premium license expired?
If you exceed any limit of the Basic license, sync engine will stop synchronizing your projects and an error message will show up in the Notification dialog of Project Studio and Action Center of Windows.
