The new interface’s Edit panel now has some nice enhancements. Users will notice that a number of fields have become editable. As well, the order of and display of fields is now configurable as well as the ability to add Custom hours between assigned users.

New fields available to edit

A number of new fields were made available to edit from the Edit Panel. These include; Actual start date, Actual end date, Estimated expenses, and Estimated time. All editable fields in the Classic interface are now available within the New interface!

Estimated time field able to divide time by user or apply Custom division

Now that Estimated time can be added in the New interface, the ability to divide the hours between Assigned users evenly and divide the hours by custom values has also been added.

  1. To access, click on the Edit Estimated Hours icon beside the Est. Hours field on the Edit Panel
  2. Select the Custom Hours option (the default is Divide hours evenly between the Assigned users)
  3. Set the hours beside each Assigned user in the Est. Hours field

You can now change the order of fields as well as hide or display the fields that you want, therefore providing control over the Edit panel’s field configuration.
