We are happy to announce that we have published our Security Statement.
The document is designed to provide our customers with a detailed information on how the and this article is meant to describe the thinking behind our statement.
Restating the obvious about regular email security compared to SSL encryption
We are seeing more and more requests from businesses requiring a full audit track of the events on a project files. This is particularly critical in projects involving multiple companies within the same project
We have therefore published a use case detailing all the possible ways of tracking the actions of all project files.
In a recent blog post, we talked about the need to take time zones into account in our online projects.
We're now happy to announce the following new features:
- the owner of an account can select a time zone for the account and its administrators: this is done in the Account application in the Admin section.
- Administrators can specify a time zone per project. In the Project Application of the Admin section, edit a project and underneath a given project you can set the time zone for the project..
- The time zone is displayed within the project and all dates and tiles are dislayed accordingly in all apps(activity feed in Overview, Due Dates, Milestones, Timelog, etc...)
We have rolled out our WIKI application in all live accounts, currently in BETA (see previous Blog post).
It’s still in BETA since we are still working on it. Please send us feedback or stories on how you are using the Enterprise WIKI. It will help us in building the roadmap for the app. If you’re just getting started, please read the WIKI FAQ.
The WIKI application has just been released and many of you are already asking about guidelines for using the enterprise wiki for collaborative writing.
What does the Enterprise Wiki application do?
Basically what the application allows you to do is edit and share pages which can be linked to one another using a simple link. You can have many users viewing or updating the same pages or adding links to public websites. A history of all revisions made on a page allows to you keep track of updates made by different project members. You can also compare two different revisions.
Using the Enterprise WIKI app for document collaborative writing
Most companies, irrespective of their sector have to deliver documents on some sort. Each document usually comes with multiple contributors. Once the document is ready, it will then need to be exported in .doc or or a .pdf file which represents a publishable version of the document. The enterprise WIKI is a great tool to break down your document into pages and assigning each page to a project member.
Many of you have been asking how we intended to support time zones within Project. It's now time (it's actually 11:00 GMT+1:00H in Paris) to give you a little heads up on our plans.
Getting started with a project time zone
Currently all projects are in the Paris time zone. Not ideal if your project is in the US. So the first sep is to allow administrators to define a project time zone for each project.
Addressing User time zones
You will come across project members in the Project Overview app and we want to allow for a display of each user time zone so every member knows where each project member is based. Displaying the offset in different user time zones will also help.
Our Discussions is one of the main used applications with Customers using GroupCamp for online projects to collect new ideas and foster innovation. We are happy to announce a new version of the application to improve collaboration with GroupCamp Project.
As from today discussions gets a new rich editor. The follower and comment system now works the same way as for the Tasks app.
The form for adding a new task has a new design. You can now add members of your project as followers of a task and add a comment along the way before submitting your task.
Adding a first comment when creating a task is a feature requested by many of our customers. A typical use case is the ability to describe a task and assign it to someone, then use the comment field to direct a message to followers of the task. The screenshot below shows a good example of such a case.
