Manage Multiple Projects

We have multiple projects that we need to manage. We started with one board with each project created as an Item. All the project related tasks, status and information have been created as Column’s. The problem with this is we are doing a lot of scrolling left to right to see all the information for each project. We we be better off having each project being a separate board? And then creating a dashboard where we can show all the projects together if we need to get a high level view of all projects on one view?

Thanks in advance for your input!

hi @ScottL

I would suggest to have one board per project so you can also assign different people to it. I also would make sure the projects are based on the same template (or a very limited set of templates). With the Rollup Multiple Boards app (see monday.com: Apps Marketplace) you can easily create those project boards from the high level overview board. The high level overview board can then have one item representing the total project. It can show %Done, sum of costs, sum of hours spent etc.

So, in short:

  • one high level overview board
  • a dedicated board for each project

Thanks for the input. I will take a look at your app.
