  Old  Need Thoughts on Team Management Idea

Hi Guys

I am starting the development of an distributed team management product, called TeamCheckin, and I would love some opinions before I start spending lots of time and money on it!

Here are my thoughts on some features:

- Will consist of both a website and downloadable software
- Conceptually the product will have a Team, TeamLeader, TeamMembers, Projects and ProjectTargets, Alerts
- Any Team can invite other Teams to work on a specific Project
- Any Team can contain a TeamLeader, a number of TeamMembers, and a number of sub Teams

Benefits of TeamCheckin:

- TeamLeaders will be able to see the current state of any outsourced Project
- TeamLeaders can set and agree ProjectTargets with any outsourced Team
- TeamLeaders will be able to view Projects easily on a left-to-right timeline
- TeamLeaders will be sent an Alert if a TeamMember's computer is idle for a really long period of time, when they should be working
- TeamMembers can add in holiday days, sick days, post work statuses, giving TeamLeaders all this info in one place.
- All the above functionality will be inside the downloaded software, accessible from the system menu bar.

What are your thoughts? Am I inventing a solution to a problem that doesn't exist?
Any thoughts on badly needed features?

Thanks for your time!

Lowengard is an unknown quantity at this point



What, exactly, is the problem you're planning to solve with this program?
How do teams/managers work around this problem now?

Will information, once added here, become contractually binding in ways that wandering into someone's office for a chat wouldn't be?
How will you address privacy concerns?
Personally, I am amused by the time management device I use when it asks me where I've been because I haven't typed anything for 20 minutes. I would object to a Team Leader, or a Team Leader's Computer doing the same. It smacks of Big Brother.
