Schedules – Gantt Charts
The scheduling object has been enhanced by adding a new Gantt-style chart. This chart dynamically updates based on the scheduling line items entered by the user, providing a clear and visual representation of the timeline. Additionally, the Gantt chart can be easily printed or exported as a PNG file for use in other documents.
The Gantt chart feature allows users to:
- Enter the edit function of a schedule line item directly from the chart.
- View the chart by day, week, or a six-month or 18-month time frame.
- Print or export the chart as a PNG file for use in other documents.
Schedule Line Items
The scheduling feature has been enhanced with the following:
- Users can now enter any two of the following items (Estimated Start Date, Estimated End Date, and Estimated Duration), and the system will automatically calculate the third item.
- Schedule tasks can now be linked to a predecessor or a successor line item for better organization and tracking.
- Two types of schedule line items are now available: Tasks and Milestones. These items are represented by different icons on the Gantt chart, with Milestones indicating a significant event or goal without a duration.
Advanced Inline Editing
The release includes an advanced inline editing feature that allows users to edit line items in a familiar spreadsheet layout. Previously, users had to open the record page to edit a line item in a related list. With this enhancement, values can be edited directly on the page, as long as the field is visible on the related list. Note that this feature does not support editing locked or formula fields.
This feature is customizable and can be configured to:
- Allow or disallow the creation of new items.
- Allow or disallow the deletion of items.
- Define which record types can be created from this item.
- Customize the name displayed for the related list.
The advanced inline editing feature is currently used out of the box for Phase Line Items and Schedule Line Items in TrebleHook, but it can also be customized for use with other related list views.
Submit for Startup Template
The release includes the “Submit For Startup” template, which consists of an email template and an email alert that can be configured to notify stakeholders about the project startup process. The template is customizable to meet the specific needs of the customer.
The release introduces the Knowledge Base, a new object designed to serve as a catalog and repository for various documents that help users learn and use the system, such as FAQs, how-tos, and instructions. The Knowledge Base is versatile and can hold different types of documents or point towards a document or video hosted elsewhere.
SF330 Selection Tool
The release includes the SF330 Selection Tool, a visual interface that enables the scrolling and selection of SF 330 codes to be assigned to a project.
