Greater control over project schedule, manage inter-project dependencies
In real world, project manager need to work with other departments & other project teams. ZilicusPM facilitates such inter-dependency between projects’ schedule. One can set inter-dependence between tasks belonging to different projects.
Now project planner can not only check predecessor tasks but also know all of its successor tasks. It help project manager to assess potential impact of changing schedule of a given task on other tasks (same or other project) at one place.
Better management of project resources
While planning a project manager can keep assigning tasks to virtual (generic) user like ‘Developer’ or “Engineer’. But when it is a time to kick off project, you need a real project team member to take up these activities. Now the advanced capabilities in project management tool ZilicusPM lets you replace virtual resource with actual team member with just couple of clicks.
Migration to Google OAuth2
ZilicusPM is already well integrated with Google Apps. The latest version has migrated this integration to use higher version – “Google OAth2“ of Authorization standard.
New Billing Reports
Now you can generate billing reports grouped by project or customer. Based on timesheet details and billing rate of individual resources, this billing information report is generated. It will help you to generate invoice for your customers.
Other enhancements, bug fixes which are going to be part of this release are
- Project Reports containing Japanese characters will show up in PDF exports
