Spring 18 - Release Notes




    Ability to Create Project Portfolios Users are now able to create a set of projects with a project start and end date in a combined project view.
    Time Tracker 

    Users can now define the estimated time to complete a task (Planned Effort) and log time against specific Project Tasks (Actual Effort).

    Users will see a new Time Tracker tab where they can log time by day or week.  Users can also log time directly in their Salesforce task.

    Planned Effort and Actual Effort Columns Users will now see two new columns within the Project Task table: Planned Effort and Actual Effort.  Planned Effort allows user to track estimated time and allocate to resources.  Planned Effort will be applied to Salesforce tasks assigned to resources.  Resources can log time against Salesforce Task which roll up to Actual Effort column.
    Updated "Enter" Key Behavior When editing a cell, a user can now hit "Enter" to edit the same cell in the next row.
