New Calendar Designs!

Check out our spiffy new calendar design! They now have a much more “calendary” look to them.
Plus, in calendar links, you and your viewers can now:
  • Filter your Projects by clicking on the Project Key.
  • Quickly jump to any month you want.

Shift Tasks by Week!

One of the biggest things you’re going to see (or not see rather) is that we’ve decided to retire the Visual Timeline Screen. We did this for a couple of reasons:

  1. We felt like it wasn’t a great experience, and we can do better. In order to do that we needed to start by cleaning house a little. Making room for more awesome!
  2. All of the visual functionality of the Visual Timeline is possible through the Calendar Layouts in the Filter Screen.
    But this month wasn’t all about removing things.

Timeline

  1. We added the ability shift Tasks by Week! Not just day and month!
  2. Added the ability to search by Roles in the main search bar.

Bugs

  1. We fixed several bugs related to creating and cloning Filters where some of the settings weren’t saving properly.
  2. We fixed a bug where occasionally you couldn’t add an alternate address to send emails from.

We also worked on a number of boring but necessary under-the-hood updates to improve performance.

Custom Project Colors!

  1. You now have the ability to assign custom colors to your shows! These colors will appear in all Calendar Layouts. Projects in your Calendars will sort by color as well.
  2. We drastically improved the loading time of the Filter Screen.
  3. Project Managers can now add multiple Projects to a single Filter (but only Projects that they’ve been assigned to).

This month we’re making a ton of under-the-hood updates to improve the loading time and general performance of all Filter Links.

Obvious Caveat: Below you’ll find ideas currently floating around in our heads in no particular order. Many are suggestions from current users. We can’t guarantee that anything listed below will be added to Propared exactly as described (or if it will even go in at all). But, we wanted to give you a sense of the types of improvements and new features currently under consideration. 

We’d also LOVE to hear your thoughts about any or all of what you read here. Just click on the blue chat bubble and leave a message!

Public Links: Calendar and List Layouts

  • When Printing, repeat date headers at the top of each page (turns out this is WAY harder than we thought it would be!)
  • Add a notes section to the top of the page.
  • “Group by” Category, Department, and Team (similar to grouping by Project and Location).
  • Display column headers only once and anchor them to the top of the page
  • Display Roles.
  • Sort Contacts alphabetically (instead of however they’re sorted now which we can’t even figure out).
  • Display Addresses: We’re adding an option to display the Addresses for Locations in each Task. Addresses will appear on both List and Calendar layouts.

Projects Screen

  • Assign custom abbreviations to Projects.
  • Assign Project Managers right from the Projects Screen.
  • Assign Locations to Projects.
