Introduction to Minitab Engage™

What is Minitab Engage?

Minitab Engage combines a powerful desktop app for executing projects with a secure web app that provides insight into your entire business initiative. The web app and the desktop app work together to help you control and monitor your deployment.

The web app has:
  • Dashboard for reporting key metrics
  • Central repository for storing projects
  • Workflow for collecting and vetting ideas, converting them into projects, and advancing projects through phases
  • Design center for managing data, templates, and workflow
The desktop app has:
  • Idea form for submitting ideas
  • Management section for ensuring consistent project definition and tracking
  • Roadmaps for guiding users through their projects
  • Forms and integrated tools needed for efficient project execution

The Engage dashboard summarizes project data and displays it in reports to give users and stakeholders views into the deployment. Dashboard reports let you see the aggregated data for key metrics across the deployment, as well as details such as status, phase, or the individual contributions of a single project.

Install the desktop app

If you haven't already installed the desktop app, you might want to so you can follow along with this guide. Your company's license administrator controls how to install the desktop app and receive updates.
  • If your license administrator allows you to install the desktop app, then you can access the download from the project repository's Help panel in the web app. When updates are available, you will receive them automatically when you sign in.
  • If your license administrator installs the desktop app for you, then you can start to use it when the shortcut appears on your desktop. When updates are available, you will receive them when the license administrator deploys them.
