Complete more successful Contractor and DIY projects

If you are working on a DIY project or need the help from a contractor, where do you start? In this article, we review how you can use FolioProjects to plan, analyze, and manage more successful projects.

With the help of an AI powered project management assistant, you can easily navigate important steps like workflows, assets (contractors, tools, equipment, permits, etc), risks, and more. Then when done, document important details like lessons learned.

How To Start?

Whether it’s a DIY project or you are hiring a contractor, everything starts and ends with you. It’s your goal and you are the only one that can define when that goal has been successfully completed. FolioProjects is designed to help you start right here.

Start a project on FolioProjects by simply sharing 3 pieces of information, the title, summary, and description (goal). From these simple pieces of information, your AI powered project management assistant can begin to recommend workflow tasks, assets, and risks that will increase your likelihood of success in this project.

AI Project Management Assistant

With the support of Machine Learning (ML) Language Models (LMs) like Llama 2, Mistral Large, and ChatGPT 4 Turbo, you can easily manage projects. Each ML LM has it’s own personality. We provide you with the power to choose which LM you think is best for supporting the success of your project.

PM Chatbot

There are 2 main ways to engage with your AI PM assistant. One way is to simply ask the PM chatbot natural language questions about the project. It will reply in natural language, as if you are chatting with an actual project manager.

The second way to engage your AI PM Assistant is to ask it to review the project. In this case, your chosen LM will be provided with a range of details about your project and asked to provide the following details:

  • Likelihood of success
  • Recommended Tasks
  • Recommended Assets (Permits, Contractors, )
  • Risks to consider

Community Curated Data

One major benefit is the community supplied projects. Experts have probably done what you are trying to do and are willing to give or sell you those details. Insight like this can save you BIG money in fines, wasted material, and lost time. View details regarding what others did in your specific situation including location.

Projects are bundled and sold in portfolios. Evaluate the usefulness of other portfolios by their project content. Each project will have a sentiment indicator present, providing insight into how each project has performed according to its owner. Over time, you will develop the skills to quickly evaluate your projects and those from others.

Share Your Project

Now that you have planned out your project, you can share it with others for DIY feedback, or with a Contractor for execution. Each project, portfolio, and asset has it’s own unique URL and QR Code. You can easily share visibility into any aspect to the custom audience of your choice.

Depending on access rights, the people you share your project will can then begin contributing to the project. They can add to the workflow, contribute to lessons learned, and other capabilities you would expect. All activities are tracked and can be reviewed in the audit log. Cumulatively, this information all amounts to indisputable proof of who did what when.


DIY and Contractor projects just became easier with FolioProjects. Ultimately, you are the only one that knows your ultimate goals. Start by documenting your goal into FolioProjects. Then utilize the power of artificial intelligence to help you to complete a successful project. Share the project with others and document important details like who did what when.
