New in Version 6.3.5
New UI for templates pages (includes existing functionality such as creating a template
from an existing task, and making a template available to your organisation.)
Roles: When using the template to add tasks to the Task tree, you can edit who will be involved by filling the roles in the template.
Download and upload template files:
Download templates to be uploaded later, or by other people.
Upload templates to save time trying to create a new one.
This enables you to use a template that may otherwise not have been accessible; e.g. it was another user’s
own template, or the template was created in another organisation.
Roles can be filled by appropriate people when the template is used.
Add tasks from a template on the Tasks view [in the “New Task” drop down].
Advanced templates feature (in addition to standard)
Create a new blank template with tasks, ToDos, basic resources, and roles to fill Task and ToDo teams.
Duplicate a template [make a copy to edit whilst maintaining the original].
Edit tasks in a template : add new tasks and ToDos , edit and delete existing data,
add new roles to Task and ToDo teams, edit template tasks’ data and teams.
Create and edit roles that can be used in the template tasks, and filled by different
people or teams when the template is used.
New in Versions 6.0 to 6.2.6
The Tasks view:
All you need to edit a task in one easy place.
The Tasks view puts all the task details including actions and an editable
task team (who sees the task) all on the one handy page.
Easier to assign actions to others, (Click on the responsible person, and choose).
It shows in their ToDo list.
Tasks view also enables setting action priority and type (which previously had to be done on a separate tab).
A new “more” section of the Task shows Task Code, URL, Progress Traffic lights and allows you to make a
task a Milestone or Isolated Task.
Creating Dependencies and Action Shortcuts is easier, more clearly explained
and intuitive than ever with new drag and drop to create features shown on the Tasks page.
Documents, Advanced Resources, Time Entries, and links can be navigated to from the Tasks view underneath the task details.
The same Task was confusingly named and edited differently in multiple places.
Actions were also edited differently in different places.
(The Tasks page is the successor to the popular task “Plan” view, which
showed most but not all task details, and didn’t allow changing the person responsible for the task on that page).
(Removing the extra “Task Details” page, action pages and top menu item “Plan” removes confusion which occurred
when people did not realise a “Plan” and a “Task” were the same thing, or didn’t realise that actions on
the Actions tab of a task were the same as the actions on the “Plan” view.).
Faster Task navigation
New task tree on the Tasks view allows switch tasks faster (compared to previous versions task plan view),
since the new tree allows navigating to tasks without waiting to reload the tree. Focusing on tasks is also faster.
More dynamic Task tree
Add tasks faster.
Complete tasks faster.
Newly added tasks, changes to the task name and status icons show on the task tree dynamically so you can
work faster adding and completing tasks, while seeing the impact on the big picture.
For those who like the right click tree context menu, Full users can still access the Task Tree context menu on
the tree on the Progress and Reports views.
ToDo features like Custom Filters and Reports used to be accessible only
from a separate “Advanced ToDo” page, now they are available on the ToDo page.
Others' ToDo Lists shows in the “More” menu. (It used to be called “People”).
Progress back on top
The Progress Gannt chart view is available in one click now it is back on the top menu.
(In previous version it was in Tools dropdown menu).
