]po[ Version 4.1
- Expected Final Release: 9/2014
- Expected Alpha Release: 6/2014
- Current Status: never officially released
V4.1 was designed as a bug fix release, but the "official" launch was delayed several times. Finally, the V4.1 improvements are released as part of V5.0. The main work in V4.1 is related to HTML5 with the start of the development of a "Gantt Editor" an a "Portfolio Planner".
]po[ V4.1 contains several completely new packages:
Other New Functionality.
- [CSV Import - Master Data Import]:
This package allows to import Projects, Users, Tickets and other business objects from CSV (Excel) tables.
- Rule-Engine for Notifications and Events:
The rule engine allows you to define actions that are executed once a value of a project, a task or any other business object (future) changes or reaches a certain value. For example, a task reaching 100% could trigger a notification email to the project manager. Both conditions and actions are defined using TCL expressions, allowing for full access to the system and integration with external systems.
- Project Portfolio Margin Tracker:
This Sencha HTML5 widget shows the development of current project margins vs. baseline values.
- Project Milestone Tracker:
This Sencha HTML5 widget shows the development project project milestones over time.
- [CRM Opportunity Tracking]:
This package maintains a list of opportunities during the qualification and sales cycle (sales pipeline).
- [Service Contract Invoicing] (experimental):
This new package introduces the notion of a "service contract" with certain parameters including a monthly fee, a number of free service hours and the price per additional service hour. A (semi-) automatic invoicing functionality allows to process many service contracts in "batch mode".
- [Mobile Timesheet Logging] (experimental):
A time sheet logging app for iPhone and Android. This app will be the base for further mobile functionality in the future.
- New Menus with sub-Menus Performance:
The main menus tabs on the top of the page now include sub-menu items for frequently used functions. This structure saves an important number of server round-trips and improves overall system agility.
- Optimizations for 40.000 Users and Customers:
We have optimized a number of pages in order to deal with large numbers of customers and customer contacts
