A look at Liquid Office’s mobile app for Feng Office: Liquid Notes

11/21/2014

 

Mobile project management requires a good understanding of what needs to be done, when it needs to be done and how one’s time can be organized in the best possible manner to achieve this. The “best possible manner” is a very personal statement that will fit each individual differently. For some, “best” refers to spending as much time as possible with family while for others, it means maximizing profits in the work space. As different as these views might sound, they both share the same goal: to use working time as efficiently as possible!
 
Mobile project management raises efficiency by using otherwise idle time productively; above all time during our daily commute, like waiting at the bus station, at the doctor’s office or even when an emergency rises and you are not in the office.
 
For people that are in constant idea process, there is nothing worse than having a bright idea but nowhere to write it down, structure it and put it into the right context. Nowadays, at least one mobile device is always at hand. With simple functionality, such as the ability to dictate, mobile devices turn into idea savers which save you a great deal of money and frustration.

Liquid Office, our developing partner from Austria, has created Liquid Notes, an application 100% compatible with Feng Office that accomplishes all of the above into one useful app.
 
Liquid Notes helps you manage your Feng Office notes on your mobile, and can be downloaded for both Android and iOS users.
Here are some of the features of Liquid Office:

  • The ability to create new notes wherever you are, without the hassle of having to wait for a computer.
  • Read, sort and filter your existing notes, in case you need information in an emergency situation where waiting to get to the office is simply not an option.
  • Classify new and existing notes to specific workspaces, to maintain organization within your Feng Office account.
  • Delete notes you no longer need right from your mobile device with just one simple finger swipe.

What’s in future for Liquid Office?

Liquid Office is planning to come up with additional apps in the Liquid Office Suite by the summer of 2015.
 
They are also working in parallel on a completely refreshed synchronization architecture, which will allow for off-line, as well as real-time synchronization. Real-time synchronization will answer the big question of document management, namely whose changes are to be taken over. Real-time synching also allows for even smoother work-flows in the future.

Feng Office 2.7 Version!!

08/28/2014

 
Hi Everyone!!
We are proud to say that Feng Office 2.7 is now available!!
We know you have been expectant of this new version, and we can assure you the improvements and enhancements will not disappoint you!! Lets have a look at them:
 

1- Improved Overall Performance:

Time is the most valuable asset on your work day, so the faster you can execute your processes, the better outcome you will have.
We’ve improved the overall performance of the system, making it so it loads and executes processes faster than ever before! Some of the main functions affected by this upgrade are:

  • Initial Loading: Forget loading delays when accessing the system. Now you can login to Feng and have your system up and running in no time.
  • Navigation Panel: Have all of your information accessible right away without having to wait. Your clients, projects and workspaces will load up and be ready much faster as well.
  • Overview Panel: The widgets on the overview panel will be accessible much faster as well, especially the People and Activities Widgets.

 

 

2- More Gantt Chart improvements!

We released a brand new Gantt Chart not too long ago, with many new improvements and features!
Well… we continued working hard on it, and have added even more improvements that make it more practical to use

  • Hide Left Grid: You can now hide the left grid that displays the task’s name and start time.
  • Full Screen Mode: Furthermore, if you only like to see your Gantt Chart, and have no other distractions on the screen, we’ve enabled the Gantt Chart Full Screen mode.

 

 
You can learn more about the new Gantt Chart module here.
 

3- Fully renovated New Contact form:

We’ve renovated the New contact form, so that you can input all of your contact’s information in a much more practical way!
Some of the most significant changes are:

      • Input method: Now the form is separated into two sections: Main information and Additional Information. Select additional information to input more detailed data for your contact.
      • Name field for phone numbers: For additional phone numbers that may not belong to the contact (Assistant, Family Member, etc.), you can now add a Name to identify the number.
      • Birthday: Add a birthday to your contacts, so that it displays on the calendar view, and never miss a birthday again!

 

4 – Birthdays!

Many of our clients have asked about birthday reminders for Feng Office, because let’s face it, who doesn’t love a birthday message on their special day?
Well now that you can input your contacts birthdays on their detail information, you will also be able to view it on your calendar so you can wish them a Happy Birthday!

 

 

5- Further improvements:

This version also includes many other minor improvements, but since we don’t want to make this post long and dreadful, you can contact your Feng Office Account Executive at anytime for further detailed information.
 
We will be implementing the upgrades on our clients progressively. Since there are not few though, in case you would like to your upgrade right away, just ask 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!
 
Last but not least, feel free to comment below and let us know what are your thoughts on it!
 
Or you may also privately contact us.
 

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!!
