Following our recent release of the new Timelog and Timesheet application, many of you have provided very valuable suggestions and feedback. We have implemented 2 of the most common suggestions as described below:
- when editing the existing time records for a given week, you can now change the date using a date keeper (so you can move the record to a different date and not only to a different day of the week),
- Managing access to time record entries: you can now restrict access to time records so that a project member cannot see the time records entered by other members of the project.
Changing the date on a time entry
Next to the already entered time records you now have a new date picker icon that allows you to set the record to a different date.
The following pop-up window will be displayed:
Because most projects include repetititive work, recurring tasks allow you to be more efficient in generating recurring tasks across multiple task lists and projects. The screenshot below shows the recurring task creation form:
As from now in collaborative task management we will consider :
- Regular tasks: implying one assignee and one task creator,
- Parallel tasks: 2 or more members assigned in parallel on the same task (please read our blog entry on parallel task assignment).
How do application settings in GroupCamp work?
Rights and permissions are desgined to be simple to use with three levels of permissions:
Administrators or Managers: only users who have been assigned the role of Administrator or Manager hold that permission
Users of the primary company: all users of the primary company (the company that owns the GroupCamp account) will hold that permission,
All members: GroupCamp Poject allows you to invite clients and partners in a project, which means they would also be included in that level of permission. (Invited Guests are from companies which are different from the primary company that owns the account).
Example in task management:
Note : The Manager role can only be assigned as from the BEST plan of GroupCamp Project. The Administrator role however exists in all plans.
