Knowing what each member of your team does every morning and interact with him within a system and in a systematic way is extremely powerful and provides for getting team members which are disperesd to work as one coherent team under a system that makes sure that they do their work as requested.
The logged in logs can be shared with the project manager or any other team member(s).
Every time a team member receives a mail request he can just click on the url within that mail without the need to log in and he can fill in his log.
The project manager can also include questions and other specific text that the user receives and can use to reply to.
The AltoChange Daily Logs tool is very powerful and configurable in many ways. You will be amazed at the difference between how you tried to manage before using the system and when you do use the system.
