New workflow and project management enhancements
Our latest product release features another round of exciting enhancements for advanced workflow and project management. Our goal with this release is to give you greater precision with your automated actions.
Workspace workflow improvements
#1: Kick off a new tasklist from a workflow rule
You can now trigger the creation of a tasklist from a template when something happens. When a phase of a project is completed, you can automatically kick off the next phase (tasklist) of the project.
#2: Automatically update workspace properties when a tasklist is completed
Would you like to update the status of a project when a certain phase (tasklist) is completed? Now you can automatically update your workspace properties just by completing a tasklist. Using workspace workflow, you can set a rule to change workspace properties.
Assign multiple users to project roles
Project roles revolutionized the way we set up projects in Central Desktop. We’ve now added the ability to assign multiple workspace members to the same role, allowing you to assign projects to your entire team. (Sorry, team.)
Notify assignees – by default
When you change the assignees or Ccs of a task, the “Notify Assignees” check box will automatically be checked, making sure no one misses a deadline or falls out of the loop.
Quickly grab the next task in line
Do you find yourself wanting to grab that task sitting at the top of the task list? Now you can quickly assign yourself and remove others with just one click, using the new “Assign to me” link in the sidebar of the task detail screen. Combine this with the ability to have multiple users on a role, and you have a rock solid way to manage a team with assignments.
