Following the latest release in the Project Overview application, we have improved the way the cross-project dashboard is designed. Late tasks and milestones are now presented as ‘late items’ and are sorted by date. Our new project schedule view presents your personal planning (as a user) for all projects in which you will find your upcoming tasks and milestones.
We have updated the weekly email reports with new settings and a new way of presenting upcoming dates for all projects.
Presenting late items in the cross-project view
On the screenshot below, you can see the three different examples of late items:
- The first example is a late task assigned to the current user and the task list for this task is linked to the milestone “Client Monthly Review Meeting” which is a late milestone (there are no due date on the task but the milestone to which the task list is linked is actually late). Please see our blog on how Milestones and due dates on linked tasks work,
- the second example shows a late milestone with 7 linked tasks which are not completed
- the third example shows a task assigned to the current user with a late due date
This blog entry presents the new synchronization options which now allow you to have all your tasks and milestones in your Microsoft Outlook and Apple iCal or any other Calendar software which support the iCalendar format. This of course comes after our support for real time synchonization for Google Calendar in Google/Gmail Accounts and for Google Apps domains.
Please note that up till now GroupCamp Project presented an iCalendar feed containing all the Milestones in a project.
To grab this new iCalendar feed go to your personal settings under 'My Settings'.
We have added during the summer season a new set of email notifications in GroupCamp Project. This new update allows you to manage whether you want to be notified for 3 new events on items you are following. This has been added as a new section of the personal settings section under MyDetails, which is where you can set your options for your weekly email report:
