A Sneak Peek into Excelway’s Structure

All elements in Excelway are organized within Projects. A Project is a structured and collaborative way of managing how your team meets and how it gets work done in-between meetings.

That’s why each Project contains a set of tools:

– Workshops: where collaborative  meetings, workshops and events are held

– Boards: where tasks are organized and progress is tracked

– Documents: where all relevant documents are stored and shared

– About: where the most important information on the Project is shared.

Each Project can have an unlimited number of Sub-Projects that are organized in a folder way. Just like Projects, Sub-Projects contain their own set of tools (Workshops, Boards, Documents and About).
