I can’t seem to adjust tasks by dragging them on the chart view, why?

SG uses a lock button to prevent inadvertent changes to the schedule, for example if you bump your screen while viewing the chart view. Tap the lock icon in the upper right corner of the screen to unlock the screen. At that point you can tap and drag tasks horizontally on the chart. If a task will not change at that point, it is probably because it has some dependencies that prevent it from moving, or you are trying to move it to some non-work time such as a weekend.

Can I change the order of the tasks?

Yes, tap the word “Reorder” near the top of the screen. Use the icons that appear along the right side to re-order the list. When you are finished, tap “Done Reordering".

My team has some holidays, can I mark those as non-work days?

SG Project Go lets you apply one of 3 specific built-in work schedules to your projects, and those do not have any Holidays specified.  So there is no way to specify Holidays directly in SG Project Go. However SG Project Go Pro does allow you to create custom work schedules that include Holidays.

Why doesn’t SG Project Go have the features of other “to-do list” apps?

It is important to understand that SG Project Go is not a to-do list app. It can be used for that purpose but was designed for managing projects that have tasks, dependencies, and typically multiple team members contributing work to the project.

Can I specify a different currency to use for the task costs?

Yes, the currency and date formatting for a each project are controlled by the Locale selection for each project.
