Working with the Gantt plan in the project

We also go into the many details of the presentation and show how the task details can be maintained in tabular form.
9 November 2022

Advanced course

Webinar #5
Plan and monitor project costs
9 November 2022 | 16:00-17:00h
How can project costs be recorded and planned as cost items? How is a planned cost history created? And how are target and actual costs compared in the project?

14 December 2022

Advanced course

Advanced course

Webinar #7
Configure fields and selection lists easily
18 January 2023 | 16:00-17:00h
In this webinar, we will show how to easily create data entry screens with input fields on different object types via the customer portal. Such input fields have a type and can thus accommodate different data such as text, a date or even a value from a selection list. Also the selection lists can be defined arbitrarily. Furthermore, various options are available with which the fields can be arranged and thus an own layout can be created.
8 February 2023

Advanced course

Webinar #8
The REST API and token-based authentication for third-party applications
8 February 2023 | 16:00-17:00h
PQFORCE has an open, documented interface. This rather technical webinar is about this PQFORCE interface, the so-called API (Application Programming Interface). We will show how a third party application, such as an ERP system, can log into PQFORCE with a Bearer Token and use the API to get data from PQFORCE or even pass data to PQFORCE. But also from Excel you can log on to PQFORCE with some programming know-how (keyword VBA) and get data and process it in Excel as you like. We will show you an example of how this works.
15 March 2023

Advanced course

Webinar #9
Simple automated field calculations with JavaScript
15 March 2023 | 16:00-17:00h
The PQFORCE server is programmed in Java. Nevertheless, it also understands the programming language JavaScript (JS). Thus, customer-specific automations can be programmed in JS and injected into the server via the API. This results in an almost inexhaustible number of use cases. In this webinar, we'll use the simplest examples to show how this can be done without having to be a JS crack. We'll take the case where a field is to be automatically calculated and populated. From this we can then derive any similar cases.
12 April 2023

Advanced course

Webinar #10
Generate automated e-mail reports
12 April 2023 | 16:00-17:00h
The PQFORCE server contains extremely valuable data about projects and resources. This can be used to generate many types of summaries, so-called reports, which serve as a basis for management decisions. In this webinar we will show how JavaScript automations can be used to compile such customized reports from the raw data and send them periodically or even ad hoc by e-mail. From this, any further evaluations or charts can then be generated, e.g. in Excel or other data processing and visualization programs.
10 May 2023

Advanced course

Webinar #11
Set up role-specific email reminders
10 May 2023 | 16:00-17:00h
Every now and then it happens that an employee forgets to fulfill his duties and, for example, enters important information for others in PQFORCE. Hours worked are forgotten to be recorded. Requested resources are not released. Or change requests are not checked and approved. In such cases, a system that periodically reminds users of outstanding tasks can help. Such e-mail notifications can be set up in a customer-specific and role-appropriate manner. Here we show how it can be done.
14 Juni 2023

Advanced course

Webinar #12
Define roles and their permissions
14 June 2023 | 16:00-17:00h
In PQFORCE there are many users and each of them works differently with the system, depending on their function and tasks. This is what the user roles are for. They assign permissions to the users, with which they can then perform their tasks and see and edit the respective data - or not. In this webinar, we will show how the authorization system works conceptually, how roles and their authorizations are defined, and also how the concrete authorizations of users can be retrieved.

  • How can I get more information about the PQFORCE Partner Program?

    Please contact us via the inquiry form. When doing so, select the appropriate option under "How can we help you?". We will then be happy to arrange a meeting to answer your questions.

  • Are there any costs for me as a PQFORCE partner?

    No. You receive free training from us, which you complete with a certificate. You pay only with the time you spend for this training and the partnership in principle. You conclude a partnership agreement with us, which regulates all details. After the certification you will be able to support PQFORCE customers as a service provider and thus expand your business. Thus, with a PQFORCE partnership you gain much more than it costs you.

  • What if there are no training courses available right now or the dates listed don't suit me?

    We continuously offer new training courses for interested partner companies. Simply contact us so that we can inform you in good time when new course dates become known. You may also be able to register at short notice, as long as places are still available.

  • Can anyone become a PQFORCE partner? What are the requirements?

    Basically, we train companies as PQFORCE partners, not individuals. However, the company naturally names individual employees who then attend our training courses and receive a certificate as a person in the respective role. Through the certification of the employees, the company is then also certified.

    However, not every company is suitable for certification. We attach importance to companies that already have many years of consulting experience in the project business and also have a high affinity for IT. Furthermore, we are primarily looking for companies in German-speaking countries, as we conduct the training courses in German. Also an on-site presence is required, the courses do not take place online.

    We will check the suitability for certification in initial discussions with you. Simply contact us to arrange a meeting.

  • Can I also acquire several partner roles? Maybe even in the same course?

    Yes, this is possible. The different partner roles require the participation in different training modules. Module 1, for example, is already sufficient for the role of "Sales Partner", but together with modules 2 and 3 it is also a prerequisite for the role of "Consulting Partner". Thus, by participating in these three modules, you can also obtain both certificates at the same time. However, you can also attend only module 1 at a first course and be certified as a "Sales Partner", in order to then catch up on modules 2 and 3 at a later point in time at another course.

  • Does the role of "Sales Partner" make me a PQFORCE salesperson?

    You decide that for yourself. We do not oblige you to do so under any circumstances. The role "Sales Partner" is rather meant as a sales support. Thanks to your network in the consulting business, you help us find interested customers by introducing them to PQFORCE and its added values. We then take over the actual sales process. But you will profit in case of a contract conclusion with the customer. And possibly even doubly: on the one hand, because you receive a commission through the contact referral, and on the other hand, because as a "consulting partner" you can then also look after the new customer straight away, thereby providing services for system implementation and support.

  • Is such a short training at all sufficient to support customers with services around the platform as a PQFORCE partner?

    We want to keep the entry hurdle for new partners low and enable a quick start with a short but intensive basic training. But it goes without saying that participation in the course alone is not enough. We expect our partners to deal with the PQFORCE platform independently and regularly and to continue their own training. For this purpose, we provide appropriate online documentation and provide each partner company with an exclusive demo system (Enterprise Edition) free of charge.

    We will also offer training courses from time to time and invite partners to participate to refresh their knowledge and learn about the latest PQFORCE features and enhancements. This is part of the partnership agreement that we sign with each partner and captures the spirit of a good partnership.
