Latest Enhancements: June 2014

Summer is finally in full swing and AceProject has added more exciting enhancements. Our aim is to make you more productive and to make the interface easier to understand for those new clients continually coming on board. Two of the major enhancements this month, specifically the Timeclock on a pop-up dialogue, and the User Assistant were suggested via user requests. Either watch the following short video and/or read below to see what has been added this month.

Timeclock Pop-Up

In past versions the timeclock was on a page that needed to be navigated to in order to set and start/stop.  You were always losing your place and had to navigate back to the page you were on.   Read the Complete Post

AceProject V3.4

2004′s first update offers many new functions and improvements:
  • You can move a task to another project. Moving a task is a useful feature that lets you take a task from one project and transfer it to another project without loosing parameters, file attachments or comments.
  • You can receive an email notification when a new file is attached to a task or when a file attachment is deleted.
  • There is a color code in the calendar: tasks in green start on that day, tasks in red end on that day and tasks in black start and end on thesame day.
  • Time report filters have been improved.

AceProject V3.3

No comments
This version features a brand new functionality:
  • A new module is now available: the IN/OUT module. This module permits starting and stopping an automatic time clock for a task. Once stopped, the time clock will automatically create a timesheet entry. This offers better control to the administrators, as well as simplifies the life of the users, who don’t need to manually fill in their timesheet.
  • The new IN/OUT module also gave us the idea to create a new access right. Administrators can choose how each user enters his/her time: manually, automatically using the IN/OUT module or both.
  • AceProject’s pages have been reorganised to make them more ergonomic.

AceProject V3.2

No comments
For this version, we improved AceProject’s flexibility:
  • Tasks can be numbered with decimal numbers, which permits simulating task dependencies and regrouping sequentially linked tasks together.
  • Each user can set his/her default sort parameters for task reports. This saves time when producing the reports themselves.
  • A new access right now limits user access to a project: they can see their tasks without seeing the project’s other parameters, such as time sheets or calendars. By forbidding opening the project, the user only sees his/her tasks in the My Office tab, which is useful with clients and sub-contractors.
  • Users with normal access rights may receive the right to create a blank project or to copy it from a template.

For the official launch of AceProject’s latest version, our team worked very hard to implement both a esthetic and functional improvements:
  • AceProject now sports its brand new colors and convenient animated menus.
  • The Administration section includes two new reports and 2 new tools:
    • Task reports by date and by user are now available in the Administration tab, which permits producing these reports for all projects at once.
    • Your account data is exportable in Microsoft Excel format. This is useful for backups and importing the data into another software.
    • A project deletion interface lets your erase a whole project or only parts of it.

New tools

No comments
Several functions have been added or redesigned:
  • A task calendar is now available under the Administration tab. Moreover, bothcalendars can display their task list right in the window, which saves you many clicks!
  • Our Gantt charts have been completely redesigned. The charts are available on ayearly or quarterly basis, which is better suited to the nature of these tools.
  • Wherever tasks are displayed, you will find a link to a printer-friendly version of the task list. On top of printing all tasks at once, this page lets you decide how many tasks to print on each page.
  • A new task report has been added to enable searches on the date fields of a task : creation, last update, start, and due dates.
