Goodbye Contextual Help, Welcome Knowledge Base

4 comments

Since last Friday, you probably noticed that “Help” links now point to FAQs. These FAQs are actually part of our knowledge base, which represents a more efficient way to get your questions about AceProject answered. Thanks to a powerful search engine, you can easily find answers to your questions.

We’ve kept the major help pages such as “Time Tracking” and “Task Dependencies”, but got rid of all contextual help pages. We’ve organized all the information in 11 categories (Projects, Tasks, Documents, Time, Expenses, Reports, Admin, Access Rights, Mobile, Intranet, and Miscellaneous).

We extracted the essence of each and every contextual help page and made a “Best of” out of it. Read the Complete Post

A Website Update and What’s Coming Soon

4 comments

We just applied a fresh paint layer on our website. Our website hadn’t been refreshed for about a year. Therefore, we’ve decided to adapt its look and feel to the new AceProject. From now on, we want to update both the application and the website more often.

It’s been a couple of weeks since we launched our new design. Our customers are pretty thrilled about the “New AceProject”. We received lots of comments and many of them helped us tweak quite a few things, fix bugs and add elements to our roadmap. We are still working on the documentation, so please be patient.

The Rejuvenated AceProject

2 comments

We are extremely proud to announce the official launch of the biggest enhancement in AceProject’s history, that is, a complete redesign of the interface.

The new interface was initially launched as a private beta. Then, a couple of weeks later, the beta was made public. Now, here we are, the new interface is now the official one for all AceProject users.

AceProject never looked so handsome! We are proud of the whole AceProject team. Each every team member was involved in the process.

Among other enhancements, the new interface includes:

  • Multi-project tabs that let you open as many projects as you want.

Migrating to New Interface on October 3

3 comments

Please note that the system will be migrated to the new interface (currently on beta) on Monday, October 3. No action is required on your part and no data will be lost during the process. The switch will occur at around 5 am Eastern Time and we anticipate 30 minutes of downtime, at worst. Should any of your users be logged in during the migration process, they will lose their session.

Once the migration is completed, you will be able to access your account as usual (without specifying /new in the URL). The “classic” interface will no longer be available. This is an irreversible process. Read the Complete Post

AceProject’s New Interface Now Available for Public Beta

10 comments

It’s been a couple of weeks since we released the new interface in private beta. Things are running smoothly and the comments we’ve gathered so far have helped us significantly improve usability, among others elements.

In order to access the new interface, simply add “/new” at the end of the URL you normally use to access your AceProject account. In other words, you can login using your normal credentials at  https://yoursubdomain.aceproject.com/new/

For information in regards to the functional changes in the new interface, please refer to our August 5th blog post here:  https://www.aceproject.com/blog/2011/08/05/aceprojects-new-look-to-be-revealed-soon/.

If you notice any issues, strange behavior or usability shortcomings in the new interface, please report them to support@aceproject.com. Read the Complete Post

AceProject’s New Look to be Revealed Soon

No comments

Summer time is great for taking care of things we have been waiting to accomplish for a long time. This year, we haven’t slowed down at all and decided to take on a huge project, that is, revamping AceProject’s interface completely. We’re not talking about color changes and a couple of new fields. Actually, several interface elements have been either eliminated, rethought or added.

We came to a point where, considering the market trends, feedback from our customers and reviews we got from specialists in our industry, we had no other option but to modernize the product. Several elements in AceProject are old-school, outdated, and a pain to use, and we’ve had enough of this. Read the Complete Post

AceProject Gets Coverage in The New York Times

No comments

David H. Freedman wrote a great piece today on The New York Times’ small business blog. The article can be found here.

Mr. Freedman actually interviewed two of our customers (Designed Write Public Relations and Quantum Simulations) and wrote down brief case studies on how AceProject helps them in their business. We would like to thank them both for their cooperation.

We are proud to get coverage from the most popular American online newspaper website. Ten years ago, we would’ve never dared dreaming about getting coverage from The New York Times, ever. This really shows that AceProject is a big-league player in the online project management software industry. Read the Complete Post

We’re Moving to New Servers

No comments

Throughout the week, we are moving all AceProject accounts on brand new servers. These servers will have a positive impact on the application’s performance, among other benefits.

That being said, this change comes with some inconvenience. During the migration process, some customers may experience unexpected downtime or instability at certain times, for short periods of time. This is beyond our power and we will do the necessary to control what we can in order to prevent downtime and instability as much as possible.

Some clients may experience issues with FTP Access or Remote Access to their SQL Server database. If this is the case, please contact us at support@aceproject.com asap to address the issue and we’ll provide you with new credentials. Read the Complete Post
