Spring 20 - Release Notes
Friday, April 10, 2020
See below for what's coming with Inspire Planner's Spring 20 Release:
Define Non-working Days and Weeks
for a Project
A new "Show Calendar" icon is available within the Project UI which allows you to define non-working days and weeks for the project.
New Time Tracking Only Tasks
A new checkbox called "Time Tracking Only" has been added to Project Tasks. When this checkbox is TRUE for a project task, the task is excluded when calculating Project Duration and % Complete. These tasks serve as placeholders for time tracking.
Ability to Define Portfolio Columns
We've added a new field set on the Project object that allows you to define which fields from the Project are displayed as columns in Portfolios. A new search box has also been added to the Project window so that you can search for Projects to add to a Portfolio.
Auto Assign Tasks to Project
This new feature allows you to define a resource role for tasks within a Project. When you create Project Team records and specify a role for each resource, tasks within the project are auto assigned to Project Team members based on role.
We've made the following adjustments to Time Tracker:
Only displays Tasks where Project Status is "In Progress" or "Not Started".
We've truncated task subject for optimization and will now only show the full task subject on mouse over
Project/Task search box now searches all projects and tasks assigned to the user
We've simplified and optimized printing from Inspire Planner to provide better output and better handle larger projects. The following features have been added:
Printing projects will now only print to PDF
You now have the ability to specify Gantt Width.When set to 0%, it will only print the task list. When set to 100%, it will only print the Gantt Chart
Header has been updated to
include Company Logo
, Project Name and Project Manager.
Added Ledger paper format
Enhanced Task Filtering in Resources Page
We optimized the resource allocation page to filter tasks that fall within the time frame you are viewing instead of displaying all tasks assigned to the resource.
Support of Groups for Project Sharing Rules
You can now set the org-wide sharing setting for Projects to "Public Read/Write" which will give all Inspire Planner users read and write access to all Projects regardless of Owner. Inspire Planner also now supports sharing rules with public groups that include roles and/or other groups.
Enhanced Zoom options in Resources Page
We replaced the zoom icons in the Resources page with a picklist that allows you to switch your view to Days, Weeks, or Months. When changing your view, the Resources page adjusts the hours to provide you with the total hours per day, week or month.
