Back at blogging!

06/27/2017

With a flood of interest and new clients signing up over the past week I thought I would turn my attention back to our blog and engaging the community.

Over the past year and a half we’ve been busy setting up our headquarters in Austin, Texas, bringing on new talent and investing in building the product. It’s been busy and I’m excited to be back here blogging again!

A big part of this spike in sign-ups was generated by the news that IQTell is planning to shut down at the end of July. And although I’ve been meaning to talk about our 3.5 release for weeks months now, the concerns of this large group of new users made it urgent to make a public statement.

I will follow up with this statement, and a ton of news and information after that. Stay tuned!

Feng Office 3.3: released

10/22/2015

3.3


The Feng Office development team is proud and happy (specially happy) to “announce” (Observant followers know it has been available for a while now) the final release of version 3.3.


Along with many improvements, bug fixes and accumulated enhancements since version 3.2, there are some more notable additions that we want to tell you about. We hope you love them as much as we do.



Resizing of the left panel (and better memory)

Very short names

This one is actually a re-introduction of a feature lost in an architectural change. But many of us missed it dearly. Now you can resize that panel to best fit your screen and the average length of your data. You can of course still hide it completely, and re-open it with the little arrow on the top.

Client with a long name
Not only that, but it will now remember your choice next time you enter the system. Isn’t that a beauty?



Resizing columns on tasks list

This one is also a pretty cool improvement. You can resize each of the columns of the tasks list. As much as you want. Even wider than your screen, if necessary.


Some users need a very basic version of the tasks. Like this:

Simple task list


While other (Project Managers) may need more details in their task list. Like this:

Task list with many columns




Separate dimensions columns on tasks list

Another neat improvement on the new tasks list. You can now choose whether you want to see the dimensions (clients, projects, workspaces, providers, tags) all together (the ‘old way’) or each one on a separate column.



Like this:
Dimensions in separate columns




New power-lists

Long due, the new and improved lists for “dimensions”: clients, projects and workspaces, are now available.

Project Portfolio Managers, Account Executives, and General Managers will all appreciate the value, the power, and flexibility of the new lists for clients:
Client list



Projects:
Project list


and Workspaces.




Professional Edition: Custom properties for Clients, Projects and Workspaces

Professional Edition users can now define custom properties for Clients, Projects, Workspaces, and on any other active high-level dimensions.

This new and powerful feature enables great flexibility for recording and managing a large volume of data for the main business entities.

After entering this information you will be able to list, sort, group and report on clients, project – et al based on the new attributes.

When defining the custom properties you can now sort them (more easily), select whether or not the field is mandatory, and enter default values.

Here is an example of how custom properties can look like in a client:
Project list




New custom property of type ‘user’

Custom properties are getting more and more useful and powerful.

One type of custom property we didn’t yet have was ‘user’, which allows to relate a user in any role for any type of object (even to clients, projects, workspaces, etc).

So this way you can have a “project manager” or “project supervisor” or “task observer” or “document validator”… possibilities are endless!

(Oh, and wait to see what we are cooking for version 3.4)




Professional Edition: description field for all entities

The ‘description’ field used to be available for projects and workspaces only. We transformed it into a default-custom property and is available in all entities (including of course clients and folders).




Professional Edition: Non-working days

Thanks to one of our new clients we now have a more advanced management for non-working days (holidays).

Non working days configuration

This increases the automation and efficiency of the management of tasks, enabling the automatic “push” of tasks to fall into working-days only.

Adding a holiday
