Zen-O Features

Project & Task

Zen-O lets you easily align project tasks with desired outcomes, choose how you want to manage tasks and assign responsibilities (via GANTT charts, task lists, orAgile boards); track progress, risks and KPIs.


Zen-O allows teams to track planned vs. actual time spent on assigned projects, tasks, and activities. Members can record, review and adjust their timesheets. Managers can review, approve and plan LOE estimates for tasks. Employee timesheets can be automatically generated and exported.


Creating and managing user accounts, notifications and settings, and user roles and permissions is easy in Zen-O. Access to system functions, projects and files is controlled through role-based security settings.


Zen-O provides a central repository for storing, managing, and sharing files. Zen-O’s file repository allows for easy organization and user-defined, project-specific directory structures.

Third Party

Zen-O has built-in integration with Slack, Dropbox, Google Calendar, and Microsoft Office, and can connect with other third-party software through our published REST API. Zen-O also offers companion apps that can be used to extend core functions.


Zen-O Survey Designer allows for quick and easy questionnaire design, distribution, data collection, and results analysis. Surveys can be shared via a public link or sent to specific respondents via e-mail.
