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.
Searching within Filters
On the filter panel when there are many items contained within the filter list, a new search header within the filter appears after many items are within […]
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 […]
Spring is well under way as a new release of AceProject with many exciting enhancements. In this latest release, a new Quick Add button menu and restructuring on the top right zone of the application. Now, no matter where you are in the application, it is always just a click away to add what you need to. Also, the Task Gantt chart has been upgraded adding on to last months modifications. Check out also the many improvements and bug fixes that have been done throughout the application. View the following video showing the Gantt chart changes, the “me” variable for reporting purposes, and more.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summer is nearing its end and Fall is quickly coming upon us. There are a number of items of interest that you may have noticed in this last release. From minor adjustments to some major enhancements including documents that can now be associated with task comments, we are working hard to make your AceProject experience better! Either watch the following short video and/or read below to see what has been added this month.
In our continued effort to remove unnecessary page refreshes and keep you in your context, a few new pop-up dialogue boxes have been added, specifically Edit Expense and Move/copy task.
Marked Task levels
Marked tasks used to have a simple on or off state. This has now been enhanced to include six color levels that can be cycled through to indicate priority or different levels for your personal tasks. You can then filter by these tasks and order them according to color. This is applied as well to marked Custom Task Reports […]
Summer is finally in full swing and AceProject has added more exciting enhancements. Our aim is to make you more productive and to make the interface easier to understand for those new clients continually coming on board. Two of the major enhancements this month, specifically the Timeclock on a pop-up dialogue, and the User Assistant were suggested via user requests. Either watch the following short video and/or read below to see what has been added this month.
In past versions the timeclock was on a page that needed to be navigated to in order to set and start/stop. You were always losing your place and had to navigate back to the page you were on. It is now conveniently located on a pop-up dialogue box that you simply open when needed and dismiss.
Ever want to create multiple users at the same time? AceProject has developed a new Add User Assistant to accomplish this task. This step-by-step Assistant will allow you to set up as many users […]
The sun is shining brightly on this almost summer day. Earlier in the morning you may have noticed a change if you are seeking for help on any topic within AceProject.
Our hope is that you were presently surprised with the new streamlined support area that was put in place. The migration to the new system will be fully complete in 2 weeks, after our next release. It features a single search field with drop down filtered results to ease in finding the answer to your question fast.
You may also want to go more in-depth and expand your knowledge and possibilities using AceProject by looking at the User Guides and new Videos sections.
And as always, please do contact us directly if needed!
Spring is in full swing and summer is fast approaching, all the while AceProject continues to push out exciting new enhancements to make your work more productive. Take a look at the short video that shows you what is new and/or read below:
Video access through dashboard
We have begun a series of videos to complement the AceProject experience. Mostly tailored to the new user or those looking for a quick reference, these videos allow a quick view of how AceProject operates, its interface and concepts, as well as the recent enhancements.
The behavior of menus within the Home or Project “context” have now been mostly standardized. This means that the same menu items will be available throughout the interface. Upon clicking on the item in the Project menu will automatically navigate the user to the function/page in the Home area, for example.
Normal user can manage clients
Before this release, clients could only be added/managed within the Administration […]
Spring is upon us. The sun is shining, the snow is melting, the birds are singing, and we have been busy adding new features to make your experience using AceProject even more enjoyable. The new features touch many aspects of AceProject, from documents to time management. Take a look at the short video that shows you what is new and/or read below:
Time Management Settings
A new Time Management configuration/settings functionality is now available. These are global account settings. This provides better control over how a user enters time:
“I do not want my users to enter time on completed tasks” (no problem)
“Users can modify their timeclock start and end times? How can I stop this?” (solved as well)
“I want users to place time against a task…not against the project (or vice-versa)?” (yup…it’s there)
(Do I hear Adminstrators cheering?)
Here is the settings dialogue, located under Admin -> Edit Account -> Time Settings
A “nightshift” mode has also been added to solve the spilling over of one’s Timeclock to the next day. When active, all […]
