The upcoming release of our online project management solution, Project Tracker.Net 4.0, delivers a substantial amount of new features to simplify the user experience, improve resource allocation and empower project management. What's more, the new structure of Project Tracker.Net 4.0 will allow organizations to more closely shape it to fit the way they work.
Here are just some of its new features:
A Simpler User Experience
- More UI improvements for keystroke support, type-ahead, and inline editing of views.
- Improved color coding in views, including task dashboards and project status tabs that help users zero-in on important information.
- New links in views and forms that simplify navigation, for example, the Project Dashboard now includes "Report" links that allow users to drill down into reports on project data with a single click.
Easier Resource Tracking and Management
- New widgets, including Time Pies and a Resource vs. Available widget that gives decision-makers a mile-high view of the workload of the organization.
- More filters for the Resource Availability view, including Project Status, Priority and Approval Status, as well as support for skills tracking. The Resource Availability view also offers functions for looking up existing tasks to simplify the assignment of under-utilized resources.
New Tools for Managing Projects
- Simplify project creation by copying an archived project into a new one.
- New function for renaming programs updates all projects within the program accordingly.
- Improved document management functions, including optional document locking during the approval process, to maintain the tight audit trail and the ownership of the documents with classified information.
- Updated form designs that simplify the presentation of project, budget and billing data.
- Import budgeted data from task allocations, and new tools for reviewing project budgets by line item, with Account Code comments.
- Easier drill-down into the actual documents with details that are contributing to the project’s Committed and Actual budget totals.
- More options for task creation and leveraging of templates.
The upcoming release offers a number of other new capabilities as well, but it also benefits from the new structure of TrackerSuite.Net. Organizations may create and configure their own forms, including tabs, labels and fields.
- Define the label for any standard field and provide a default value.
- Configure the interface, and disable fields that will not be required in a particular environment. Establish new, security enabled custom tabs with various field types including Text, Number, Currency, Date, Text Area, Keyword Lists and more.
- Control the edit security of the form information including the fields.
This new structure allows organizations to truly mold TrackerSuite.Net applications to the way they work, all the way down to terminology.
