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.

New Time Report, New Gantt Chart, Better Ergonomics!

No comments
3 new features are now available to better your AceProject experience:
  • The new report on time sheets helps you get an overview of the human resources required for one or all projects. Produce a weekly or monthly report, choose users, dates, and time sheet status. This convenient report pops up in a new window and is ready to be printed.
  • Administrators now have their own Gantt chart, where they can see all projects at once, or one project at a time.
  • In the My Tasks page under the My Office tab, we have added the Quick Task Creation Box: simply choose your assigned project and click a button to create a new task without having to open a project.

Details and Improvements

No comments
AceProject is constantly evolving. Once again, several improvements and details have appeared in the system:
  • On the Edit Task page, a Properties icon takes you directly to the project configuration page.
  • The system now checks that simultaneous changes do not cause data loss: when two users are making changes to a task simultaneously, AceProject will stop the second user’s update from overwriting the first user’s modifications.
  • Daily and weekly totals are now displayed in the time approval page.
  • A drop-down list is available to choose the month and year in the project calendar.
  • Ergonomics has been improved in the Add a Week page: you can browse one or four weeks in time.

Enhanced Ergonomics

No comments
Once again, our user’s comments have led to several ergonomic enhancements:
  • Project configuration is now tab-based to make navigation easier.
  • User configuration is easier to use: you can now assign a project to a user directly from the edit user window – no need to click through to another page.
  • Time approval has been added to the Administration tab: it is now possible to approve time sheets for all projects at the same time.
  • Weekly time sheets now display daily totals for easier referencing.
  • Supplemental information has been added to the discussion forum: you can now see the number of messages in a topic, as well as the date and author of the last post.

FreeTaskManager change its name and becomes AceProject

No comments
In the last year, FreeTaskManager has grown beyond simple task management to a more comprehensive project management system. Hence, FreeTaskManager was no longer a suitable name for it. Starting March 1st, you will find all the user-friendly features you used to know as FreeTaskManager under a new name: AceProject.

Don’t worry about your account and login information: they will remain unaffected by the name change.

  • AceProject will let you log in to your account with your FreeTaskManager login name and password.
  • Free access will remain available as the Hosted BASIC package.
