Tip of the month – March 2014: Discover the power of AceProject’s API

No comments

The API, huh?

AceProject is able to do some incredible things…but not everything. Sometimes you wish “if only there was a way to (fill in the blank)”. Well, if you didn’t know this already, AceProject comes with a fairly complete API or Application Programming Interface. I won’t say that now you have endless possibilities…but you almost have endless possibilities. The API is a function library that can be accessed outside of the AceProject interface to do some really nifty things.

If you are like me and have little or no experience in programming, wouldn’t you want to have access to this powerful mechanism? Read the Complete Post

Valentines day has just past.  AceProject would like to extend this day and share the love with some new enhancements and fixes that aim to please.  Over the past several months you have seen many small changes that enhance the user experience.  This month is no different.  Our goal is to make your workflow more fluid and provide you with the functionality to make day to day use easier.  Many of the enhancements that you see in AceProject come from our users.  Although they do not all make it in, we take in and discuss all submissions.  Let’s take a look and see what is served up in this update, shall we?

Latest Enhancements: January 2014

Happy (belated) New Year everyone!  We here at AceProject wish you all the best for 2014! Hopefully, a few of the latest enhancements that were released on January 15th and today, January 29th, will start the year off on the right foot. Much effort is being placed on streamlining functionality and simplifying the interface.

New Document Sub-menu

You may have noticed that fewer page changes/loads are occurring? More pop-up dialogues and other mechanisms have been added through the interface. For example, check out what happens when you click on the document indicator in the task list. A new menu appears.  From this list you can preview (an image) or download. Read the Complete Post

Although the year is beginning to wind down and the holidays are fast approaching, our hard work continues. Our latest efforts continue to allow for a more simplified user experience. You may have noticed that you are no longer directed to pages for edits, instead we have placed pop-up dialogues throughout much of the application. You no longer have to leave and come back to your page to change a Status Group item for example, or to export a report. For those fans of bulk updates, we have something special for you too!

Bulk task updates

Are those cheers I hear? Read the Complete Post

Latest Enhancements: November 2013

Our development team has spent much of the last couple of months making code adjustments on the heels of the massive September 10th update.  However, we have managed to include many new great features during this time as well.

Create tasks by email

One enhancement that users may greatly appreciate is the ability to create a task directly from an email. There are many situations when this could be very useful. For example, a form from a webpage could collect information and send this information directly into AceProject as a Task. Tasks created within this project can be auto-assigned with email notifications sent to inform users of work that is to be done. Read the Complete Post

The summer did not stop the evolution of AceProject. Don’t worry, we had time to squeeze in a little vacation, enjoy family and friends, take in lots of sun, etc.

There is a balance to be struck between the powerful features that we implemented and the ease of use that come along with them. We think we succeeded with these latest enhancements. Tell us what you think!

Custom Task Report Enhancements

Custom Task Reports are one of the most frequently used features within AceProject. They allow the extraction and presentation of all tasks filtered to your precise needs.  Many useful features have been added to allow more control over the editing and listing within the generated reports.

Latest Enhancements: July 2013

After the sweeping changes to the timesheets, our latest development work might well have gone unnoticed. However, these have significant ramifications in terms of the ability to simplify the interface for users who do not need to record time or run time reports in AceProject. In the process, actual hours can now be veiled throughout from specific users (for instance, your clients). All this power in a single checkbox!

Here are the latest enhancements:

  • Time Module now can be disabled at the account and user levels. When the Time Module is disabled, the left menu and top frame pulldowns no longer display items related to the time module.
  • Read the Complete Post

Have you noticed that you can now edit existing time items directly in your weekly timesheet screen (now called the “My Time” page) and navigate through the time boxes using your keyboard (Tab, Shift-Tab and arrow keys)?

Additionally, AceProject now anticipates the projects and tasks you might want to record time on in your current week based on the projects and tasks you entered time on in the previous “nonzero time” weekly timesheet. Behold the “Proposed Time Items” section! Items therein are only virtual but they turn into “real” time items as soon as you start adding time on them (directly in the “My Time” page, of course!).

Time Sheets have been the story in the last month! The way users will record their hours has been rethought. Our development team’s focus has been on making time entry quicker. Amongst other changes, having to create one’s weekly timesheet is a thing of the past.

Time Entry Improvements

  • Selecting Home > Time > My Time automatically opens the user’s current weekly timesheet.
  • “My Time” added in Home tab default pages options.
  • Weekly timesheets now created transparently. “Add a New Week” button and “Auto create weeks” option removed.
  • Timeline navigation tools added in “My Time”.
  • “Add Time…” drop-down now lists recent projects 1st followed by other assigned projects, grouped by Project Type.
