Super simple way to plan, manage schedule – Inline Editing of Project Schedule

We have listened to you and in ZilicusPM 9.4, we are making it really simple for project managers and project planners to plan, change & manage project schedule with all-new ‘Inline Editing’ of project schedule. You will find a distinct place in project workspace to perform Inline Editing. Please refer to screenshot below and you will realize how simple it is to

– Add new tasks

– Add sub-tasks

– Change task name, task dates, duration, resources, status and completion level

Simply click on the task name and task name will become editable; same way simple click on task start date will prompt you to select a new date. Changing task resources – adding new or removing existing resources assigned to task is incredibly easy now.

We are confident that ‘Inline Editing’ functionality will get extensively used. We believe it appeals to all those project managers who want to create simple straight forward project schedule like one created using spreadsheet.

Especially project managers who didn’t want to worry about task dependency, resource load, task estimation type, etc will find it immensely useful.

One thing I should highlight here is: Tasks created using inline editing will have task estimation type as ‘Fixed Duration’ and resource assignment will be done with allocation level as per individual resource default allocation at project level.

Advance Task Details – Reorganized for Better View, Access

This version has also introduced minor user-interface change to task details panel. We have reorganized the task details panel making it simple to access, to navigate and easy on eyes.

Documents attached to tasks and issues, risks related to tasks will be shown in same tab/sub-section named ‘Attached Documents & Items’.

Better Visibility With Maximizable Gantt View

In order to provide a better view of Gantt chart and task information, we have introduced sizing option for Gantt window. One can maximize this view and get to see task-list with Gantt chart within an enlarged view. One can toggle the same button to resize it, back to original viewing size.
