Our latest release, version 2010.09.27, includes an enhancement we had on our wishlist for quite a while. We are glad to introduce a new field at the project level called “Predefined % Done”. Essentially, this will empower project managers to set a default % Done value to any “In Progress” task status.
As an example, let’s say you have 5 task statuses in a project. From now on, you’ll be able to set Predefined % Done values like that:
- “To Do” (“Waiting” type) – Predefined % Done = 0% (built-in value, uneditable)
- “Submitted” (“In Progress” type) – Predefined % Done = 40% (custom value)
- “Reviewed” (“In Progress” type) – Predefined % Done = 90% (custom value)
- “Published” (“Completed” type) – Predefined % Done = 100% (built-in value, uneditable)
We feel this option is a great time-saver as it enables you to skip a step when updating tasks. Most of the time, it will not be necessary to update the % Done manually.
Another enhancement we made is empowering administrators to delete documents on completed projects. We have been reported this annoyance often enough to fix it.
