This blog entry presents the new synchronization options which now allow you to have all your tasks and milestones in your Microsoft Outlook and Apple iCal or any other Calendar software which support the iCalendar format. This of course comes after our support for real time synchonization for Google Calendar in Google/Gmail Accounts and for Google Apps domains.
Please note that up till now GroupCamp Project presented an iCalendar feed containing all the Milestones in a project.
To grab this new iCalendar feed go to your personal settings under 'My Settings'.
- All image files (png, gif, bmp, jpg) are presented with a thumbnails in the Files view. With a preview mode which allows them to be viewed without being downloaded,
- the deletion of comments by users or administrators is now possible under certain conditions.
When a user adds a comment, the comment can now deleted within 15 minutes after the comment has been deleted. This solves issues related to typos or comments posted too hastily..
For Managers and Administrators, comments may be deleted at any time. Please note the following.
- When a comment has been deleted, a message will indicate that the comment has been deleted,
- Comments sent to followers by email prior to the deletion cannot (obviously) be cancelled. Replies to the comments will be added to the thread.
We have had several requests over the past months for our clients having to manage a large number of projects, especially those doing client projects. We are introducing a first set of comfort features designed to help you improve the way you manage a large number of projects.
This has been requested for some time now: the ability to keep the proportion of a picture and therefore acvoiding distortion when your picture is resized.
In your profile, click on ‘Add a photo’
For all our users in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and in all other European countries where the date format cas mm/dd/yyyy, we now allow for every user to choose their own date format in their account. This comes as a new tab in the personal settings section where, as you know, you can already 1) choose the settings for your weekly email report for assigned tasks and milestones, 2) sync with your Google Calendar 3) add authorizations to access your Gmail or Google Account.
The screenshot below shows the last section of the personal settings section where you can set your date format and choose your first day of the week.
Last week’s release has brought a series of new features for account administrators.
Users and Guests Apps – Viewing the list of projects a user is participating in
This is no longer done in the user profile or info view but simply by clicking on the number of projects next to a user in the Users or Guests apps
Personal Invitation message
When inviting a new user to join an online project, it is important to provide to a user some context about who is inviting, why and what they should be expecting. You can now add your own customized message when adding a new user who is not familiar with GroupCamp.
