AceProject V3.6

No comments
AceProject 3.6 introduces a wide range of clever new functions and improvements:
  • Three new access right items have been added:
    • The new limited administrator mode gives project managers an overview of all their projects without having access to account configuration.
    • Timesheets can be completely disabled, keeping a user from logging time.
    • Access to the User Directory can be limited or disabled. Hence, a user can only see users who are members of his or her projects or not see the directory at all.
  • Project configuration contains three new default values fields: task Start Date, end date and estimated hours.
  • Each project now has a contact section that displays the contact person for this specific project.

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.

New statuses for time approval

No comments
3 new features are now available to better your AceProject experience:
  • You can now create several task statuses corresponding to “completed,” such as closed, cancelled, history, etc.
  • Time approval has been redefined to make a distinction between a time sheet that has not been submitted for approval and one for which an approval request has been sent.
  • A completed task now opens in read-only mode. If you have the required access rights, you can reopen it by changing its status on the completed task page.
