Major Upgrade to AceProject Back-end Infrastructure

amazon_ec2After a long process, all infrastructure that runs AceProject has been migrated to Amazon. The entire back-end is now on Amazon EC2 and associative services. There were a number of factors leading to this migration with many benefits (expected and some unexpected). The opportunity to upgrade the server OS was also accomplished, with all systems now running Windows Server 2016.

Performance enhancements

The response time for query and return of results to display in AceProject has been cut by at least half.  Faster loading times creates a more seamless experience and more productivity.

Maintenance periods are shorter

Due to the increased performance, large maintenance operations, such as server patches that require reboots, as well as backups are much quicker, leading to less downtime.

On demand bandwidth and performance

Memory, space, and CPU power for servers can easily be adjusted to maintain high availability through all periods of usage (such as peak periods).

This infrastructure environment allows AceProject greater flexibility and long-term stability.

Latest Enhancements: December 2015

A number of enhancements have been added to this most recent update to AceProject. Our efforts continue to provide a more uniform experience throughout the application as well as increase the productivity.

Open Task in New Browser Window

Using Ctrl + click on any Task Summary will open a new browser tab and open the task on the Edit page. The advantage of course is that you can open multiple tabs to easily access frequently visited tasks. This also works directly from an email notification. Tab names have been modified to reflect the task # and name.

A visual indicator has been added that can also simply be clicked to have the same action when a task is open in the Edit Task page.

Latest Enhancements: October 2015

AceProject is continually becoming easier to use and more productive. A number of features have been added and existing ones modified for this latest release in October.

Multiple Task Assignments

An update of the Multiple Tasks assignment grid is available. After an assigned user is selected, this view displays either All Tasks, All Incomplete Tasks, or All Completed Tasks. You are then able to quickly set the user as assigned or as a reviewer on the tasks. Two new columns were added displaying the current Assigned Users and Reviewers on the Task. A great use case for this tool is when a new user is added to an existing project, in one centralized view you are able Assign to tasks within a project. This tool is available from the Project Task list on the top right Multiple Task Assignments icon.

Latest Enhancements: June 2015

Another summer season is upon us (at least for those in the Northern Hemisphere). We celebrated this release a little early by eating outside on the terrace this week…ahhhh…ok, back to work!  The introduction of the new Gantt some months ago has opened a number of possibilities, as you will see from below. We are continuing on our progress to provide an efficient and effective application to our users.

Gantt Chart Improvements

AceProject continues to advance on a powerful feature within the application, namely, the Gantt Chart. The improved Gantt that was released in April has had some important upgrades since. The fields in the Grid portion of the Gantt are now all fully editable! (in addition to already being resizeable). Click any field to make it editable. So now, create rapidly 10 tasks with the Quick Add  + Add tasks feature, change the names in the Gantt grid without opening the task, click on the assignments field and from the drop-down list multiple select the users, set date, drag-n-drop dependencies, and you are done.  This greatly increases […]

All those Administrators out there! Don’t worry the Administration button is not missing, it has simply been placed under the Settings/Gear icon on the top right.

Quick Add

No matter where you are in the application, you now have one centralized area to add tasks, time, users, an expense, a client and timeclock. If you are already in a project, the tasks, expense, etc will be set to place the item within it.

From this menu is […]

Latest Enhancements: February 2015

We are back out of hibernation from an extended holiday break. In this latest release, the Task Gantt chart has been replaced and now conforms with the Project Gantt chart, using the same technical component. This new Gantt is a big improvement on what was previously included. Check out also the many improvements and bug fixes that have been done throughout the application. View the following video showing the new Gantt chart and more:

New Task Gantt Chart Functionality

After a fairly lengthy implementation period, the development team has finally put the finishing touches on the new Gantt chart (Accessible via Tasks>Gantt, form the left main menu) that harmonizes with the Project Gantt chart. One of the most exciting things to come out of this is that dependencies can now be set directly within the Gantt chart as well as ordering of tasks. Also, you can now dynamically change start and end dates as well as modify the progression %, all in one location. It does a great job, however, there is room for some improvements yet.

Latest Enhancements: October 2014

An update to all accounts was rolled out earlier today. This release should have been seamless to the majority of accounts. A few behind the scene changes as well as a few enhancements for you on this beautiful Autumn day…

Amazon Document Storage

First, the documents that you add to your account are now stored on Amazon (physical storage in USA facilities is only utilized).  This provides for even more reliability and security, as well to provide us more room to expand the amount of storage space per account…In other words, there is now no ceiling to the amount of extra storage space that can be added to your account if needed (Current limit was 70 Gb total)

Forward Email to Create Task

Create task via an email has been enhanced by supporting creation through email Forwarding now too! No more copying content, composing a new email…simply click on Forward and add the project email address that you wish the task to go into.
