Enhancements to usability in Rillsoft Project 9.0 and More

Expand and Collapse Portfolio Properties Windows by Directories

To simplify handling complex directory structures and a larger number of projects, the GUI for project portfolio properties has been revised.

The new GUI provides a more user-friendly and organized presentation of project portfolios and their properties. Some of the new features include:

  • The introduction of free-text filter functionality (allowing multi-word queries)
  • Expand and collapse subfolders in directory structures
  • The display of the most recently selected projects/directories
  • Filtering and sorting of projects based on various criteria such as project name, status, start and end dates, etc.
  • Grouping of projects based on specific properties like the client, industry, etc.

These GUI improvements make it easier to manage large numbers of projects and maintain oversight of complex directory structures.

Row Overview in Resource and Capacity Views

In larger portfolios or projects, it can be challenging to keep track of rows in resource views, especially when resource utilization extends across multiple screens.

In Rillsoft Project 9, a row overview similar to Excel has been implemented in resource and capacity views.

This allows you to select and highlight a specific row, ensuring it remains within your field of view regardless of how far you navigate within the view.

The row overview feature enhances navigation and significantly improves usability in extensive project representations. It enables you to maintain focus on a specific row while simultaneously keeping other information in the view.

Restore Recently Used Directory View

The most recently selected directory is displayed as expanded, while all other directories are displayed as collapsed.

This feature is particularly useful when you regularly work with projects in different directories. Instead of having to navigate the entire file path each time to reach the folder where you last worked, Rillsoft Project automatically opens the corresponding directory for you. This saves time and effort, making the workflow more efficient.
