Not every organization has working hours as 40 hrs a week, it can be less than 40 hours (e.g. 37.5 hrs) or more than 40 hours (e.g. 42.5 hrs). The version being released in next week will give you the flexibility to set working hours per day for your organization. This value will be taken into account to compute resource availability per day, resource load per day as well as calculating resource utilization.
We are also considering a request to be able to configure working hours per working day for individual resource. This enhancement will be considered for future version of ZilicusPM project management system.
Clearly See Visuals of & Modify Project Resource Load/ Efforts In the Report Itself
Looking for quickest way to change assignment of multiple project resources across multiple projects at one place? Many of you wanted a capability to modify resource assignment (efforts/ hours assigned) in a resource load chart reports itself. ZilicusPM 9.1 will allow project managers to modify resource assigned hours against a given project task.
Note - It is only a project owner (and those have project planning access to respective projects) who can modify resource load in this report but again - it is restricted to their own projects. One can not modify assignment of resources in somebody else's project. We hope this enhancement as requested by some of ZilicusPM customers, will be beneficial for others too - in terms of better resource management, capacity planning and resource tracking.
Configure Customer's Access To All Issues In a Project
Now you as project manager, can configure whether your clients should access all issues or only those assigned to them. Another good news is - you can have such configuration each project that you are managing. This enhancement was mostly requested by customers in professional services organization who have to work closely with clients and update client for project specific issues.
Assign Internal Issue To Customer
Even better - now you can assign your internal issue to customer. Earlier there was restriction that only those issues/bugs/ incidents created by clients could be assigned back to clients. Such restriction will no longer be enforced.
View Tasks Linked To a Given Issue
Team members working on issues / incidents / bugs can view task to which given issue is related; in short, project team members can assess what is the possible impact a given issue has on project task i.e. project schedule/timeline.
Set Project Completion Date
Just like actual completion date of a task can be set, project manager can now set actual completion date for a project. The project completion date can be manually set by project owner while changing the project status to 'Completed' state.
Some of you wanted to be notified whenever a new comment is added to issue or risk. The next version of project management system - ZilicusPM will allow you to configure email preference sucht that you can receive email notification as soon as new issue comment or risk comment is added.
