The Celoxis software contains many features. One of the most useful of these distinctive features is the Dashboard, which is a screen that allows the user to enter and check off his or her tasks directly. The project planning is easy with the spreadsheet style that is used. Most users are very familiar with this layout, and it makes planning and editing very simple.

Gantt Charts offer users the ability to synchronize with Microsoft Project in two simple ways. Resource management is made simpler by a search feature. An email alert informs team members of task assignments and other important things. Employees can use the software to submit time sheets. The boss can use the software to approve these time sheets. Users can create and share custom or pre-defined reports. Message boards, the ability to upload files, and other features make collaboration easy.
