Make your team more productive, Part I

This is part 1 of a series of articles about new changes in Binfire.

We just released the latest version of our project management application. In addition to making the UI look better and easier to use, we have added the functionality you and your team need to be more productive. Below I have summarized new features and improvements we have made in the new release.                                                                                  .

1-Inline task edit

Now you can edit  any task by clicking on its title. When you do that, an inline form opens in the page which lets you add or editing task’s details. You can change the task’s description, start and due dates, assign it to a team member, add tags and files or comments. This makes editing task much easier and faster than using the inverted triangle we used before to get to the edit form (that form is still available).

To edit the task title, click on  the pencil icon next to the task title to enable editing. To close the edit mode just click on the task title. All changes are saved automatically.                                                        .

2-Add subtasks in one click

Each task now has a add subtask link next to it. Just press this link and a new inline text box open to add the task’s title. The system know what level task you are creating and will adjust automatically.                                                                                                                                                                        .

3-Better Search

Now you can sort tasks by task owner, the person the task is assigned to, status (due today, late,  shortly due, open or closed), if a task is followed, tags or any free text. This makes it much easier to see the information you need. For example to see all tasks due today which are assigned to John (a team member), type status in the search box and select due today. Then, type “assigned to” and choose John. Now when you click on the search button all tasks due today which are assigned to John are shown.                                                                  .

In the next article I will describe other changes we have made to make your team more productive.
