New and improved Gantt Chart!

07/04/2014

 
Hi Everyone!
 

We are so eager to share some really exciting news with you:
The Gantt Chart, a tool that helps you manage your schedule on a day-to-day basis, has been completely redesigned!

 

 

Not only has it been redesigned to be much more appealing to the eye, but also so that it can have a more intuitive user interface, allowing you to make changes without having to edit each task individually from the Full-Task Edit form.

 

The intuitive drag-and-drop interface of the Gantt Chart allows the end users to easily change start/end time and duration of tasks, link tasks to each other, and set task completeness with just a few clicks.

 

Changing the start/end date and duration of a task:

Simply click on either end of the task, and drag the task to the date and time you wish to change it to.

 

 

Changing the progress of a task:

Click on the grey triangle button (shown above), and drag it to show how much progress you have made on the task. If this button is dragged to the end of the task, it will change its status to Completed.

 

 

Setting Task Dependencies:

Simply click on the round button that shows up at the end of the task, and drag it to the next task you want to link it to. This way, you will be setting up a dependency with these two tasks.

 

 

 

That is not all!! You can also change the zoom level to have a wider perspective of everything:

 

Daily:

Weekly:

Monthly:

Yearly:

 

Last but not least, Exportation!

In case you need to include this Gantt Chart in a report or share it with colleagues of yours or other stakeholders, you can also export it to PDF and PNG formats respectively.

 
We hope you enjoy this new version of the Gantt Chart, and remember to follow us on Facebook to keep updated on the new improvements that will be arriving very soon!!
 

If you have any comments or feedback on the new and improved Gantt Chart (or Feng Office itself), feel free to comment below or contact us here.

Feng Office 2.6 version!

05/21/2014

 

Hi Everyone!!
 
The long awaited 2.6 version of Feng Office is already available!!
 
This new release has taken a bit longer than expected, but only because the improvements and enhancements are not few!! Lets have a look at them:
 

1- Faster and easier way to manage Tasks:

The time you require to perform actions is very valuable, so the faster you can perform them, the better. The Tasks module is by far our most popular one, therefore we wanted to improve it a little bit further so that you can save more time!
 
From now on you will be able to easily select the Client, Project, Folder, Workspace or Tag for the tasks at the very moment of its creation or edition, without the need to go for the full-form screen (which takes some more time):

 

2- Easier way to manage Time Entries:

Just as we improved the Tasks Module usability, we also applied similar changes in the Time Module, making it easier and more convenient to classify your time entries with the sole purpose of saving you time.

 

3- Faster and easier way to update documents:

Again, saving time is something we consider very important, so if you would like to update a new document, you will now be able to do it with less clicks and less idle time as shown below:

 

4- Task dependencies compatibility with Templates:

Templates are fantastic: they help you to reflect processes and workflows within the system. With them not only you save time whenever you need to create sets of tasks, but you also ensure that every step is followed, without missing any.
 
On the other hand, Feng Office Professional Edition and Enterprise Edition have Task Dependencies to prevent you or your colleagues from completing one task until its previous task is completed. However, there was no compatibility with Templates… until now! Creating templates with dependencies make them even more powerful, so we strongly suggest giving this option a go by editing the Templates you already have:

 

5- Projects, Clients and Tags can now be colour coded:

Many of our clients who are using Workspaces, and colour coding them, have been asking us to include this feature in the Clients and Projects section and thus making it easier and faster to distinguish information.
So, by popular demand, and now not only Clients, Projects and Folders are compatible with this feature, but also Tags!
You simply need to edit the Client or Project in question and select its colour:

 

6- Improved IMAP compatibility:

Feng Office Integrated Email Module (Email client) supports both POP3 and IMAP email accounts. However, IMAP ones were not really that compatible until this Feng Office version. Today onwards you can mark your emails as read or unread in Feng Office and have them marked this way in your mail server, so that all of your devices are syncrhonized!
 

7- Multiple tasks drag & drop enhancements:

Even though there already is one way to classify multiple tasks at the same time, we have improved the system so that the drag & drop method within tasks works for multiple tasks (and not one by one as it did) when you Group by Clients and Projects, Workspaces, Tags among the different options.
 

8- Many other improvements:

This version also includes many other improvements but not as major as the aforementioned, and since we do not want you to fall asleep while reading this article, you can get in touch with your Feng Office Account Executive for further information.
 

Later today new accounts will be created with this new version, and clients will be updated soon as well. Since there are not few though, in case you would like to rush your upgrade just reach over your Account Executive or the Support Team, which will gladly help you out.
 
We hope you like this new version, and remember to follow us on Facebook to keep tuned on the upcoming improvements as we are working on many!
