Easy Projects Update: Templates, Drag’n’Drop and Sub-Tasks (version 9.4)
We are happy to announce the release of version 9.4
The main focus of this release was on the usability improvements for Activity Center with most of the changes coming to us as your feedback.
Here are the new features and enhancements:
Ability to create a new project from a template
The Quick Creator panel has been updated, so it now allows you to use a template when creating a new project.
If a template is used, all its activities will be automatically copied over to the newly created project. This function is identical to duplicating a project.
Any project can be marked as a template by changing its status to… you guessed it: “Template”.
You can view and manage your list of template projects by clicking on the Template link in the Quick Creator panel or choosing the “Templates” view.
Ability to create a new sub-activity at any level
This was one of the most requested features for Activity Center.
When you move your mouse over any activity name you’ll see a new “+” icon. Clicking it will add a new child task right under the selected activity. All you need to do is type task’s name and hit “Enter”.
Tip: If you press “Ctrl” + “Enter” it will save your task and add another one right below.
Ability to drag’n’drop an activity to a specific place in the hierarchy
Before when you dragged an activity on top of a parent, this activity would always go to the bottom of the list.
Copy selected activities to a specific place in the hierarchy
Other changes include:
- Parent activity start date is now editable at Interactive Gantt
- CSV Import: ability to import Guest Users
- MS Project Import improvements
- Minor bug fixes and performance improvements
Version 9.4 is available as a free upgrade to all hosted clients and in-house clients with valid subscription.
