What’s new

When we started building Twproject 6 we’ve examined all users’ feedback on usability and by leveraging the evolving capabilities of browsers we created an interface that is readable, compact and can represent the state of several projects and tasks together.
Twproject 6 features a redesign of the overall user interface. Maintaining all the key features and flexibility now Twproject is more readable and easy to use.

Creating new projects and tasks is now easy and fast, and at the same time there is complete support managing easily projects changing in time.

project statistics

Every screen of Twproject has been redesigned and crafted in order to facilitate information gathering and input, and ease navigation between different sections. Data can be filtered and sorted in a simpler way, and more data is visible on screen. Pages are responsive to different screen sizes, so to optimize user experience in different settings. {issue list}

Twproject known capacity of handling complex projects has been preserved and empowered, for example by allowing Gantt-like functionality in a view spanning several independent projects, supporting portfolio analysis.

Overall everything is changed and nothing has been dropped, the user interface rework also meant adding functionalities and facilitating usage across the application.

And more

On top of being a major update with the entire user interface redesigned, we added a host of new features, while preserving the  model of all Twproject versions.

One of the immediately visible ones is the new home page / dashboard composition, with a notification top bar and “red circled button” news entry point.

All editors now have in place editing, which speeds up the creation and editing process and also eases checking related information.

All search / filter results have sortable grid layouts with very compact lines, without compromising readability.

A unique feature of Twproject 6 is that it provides a multi Gantt view that allows view and editing of entire project trees of different projects.

And beyond this there is a lot more: issue notes are now always visible, their editing process is streamlined, project discussions are easier, search speed and functionality improved … the best way to appreciate all this is to give Twproject 6 a try!

For all users of version 5 that purchased after 1st of September 2014, upgrade to version 6 is free. All users of the online services will get a free upgrade on request. For the detailed cost of your upgrade, free licenses and more information do write us here.

Upgrading from Twproject 5

The multi-platform installer includes an upgrader from version 5 which updates the web app and your data, but it cannot update Java’s JDK (see FAQ), you must do that by hand or do a new installation; Twproject 5 needs Java JDK version 7. In order to try version 6, the best way is to do a fresh installation. The new installer requires 64 bit operating systems.

 

Teamwork release 4.3 available for download

Teamwork 4.3 multi-Gantt view.

Teamwork 4.3 multi-Gantt view.

A free upgrade release for all users of version 4.0-4.2, this release includes some major extensions of functionality; while there is no “revolution”, this kind of release makes your “Teamwork life” more comfortable. Several features requests from the feedback service have been fulfilled. Also the user guide has been updated.

Download this release here.

Multi-Gantt support

This was motivated by this request: “Manage graphical Gantt-type overview of all projects”. We then realized that all it needed was the filtering power of projects search together with a Gantt style visualization. So this is what we’ve done: we added an additioanl visualization of the search results. So for example you can see all your root open project closing in 2 weeks in a Gantt style view.

Also all the Gantt scales have been extended to 5 years.

Import from CSV – Bugzilla

Import of issues and resources from CSV files: issues get imported from the Bugzilla CSV export format, but of course in this way you can import from anything.

Collapsible project trees

Projects trees can be collapsed and there are options to keep them open by default etc. . This was this request; thanks to Halil for the first implementation.

Twitter integration with any action and there is a new portlet for filtering tweets on any topic: see the user guide, section 8.3.3.
