PPM Express Digest: What’s New in February 2022?

2 min read

PPM Express periodically releases updates that improve the performance, security, logic, and usability of our product.

Let’s check what’s new functionality we add this month.

The Export and Import to CSV file option was improved for all entities

Before:

When exporting PPM Express items to the CSV file and then importing it back to PPM Express, the entities were not updated according to the changes in the CSV file, new entities were created instead. 

Now:

When exporting PPM Express items to the CSV file and editing the items there (change duration, progress, predecessors, etc.) these changes will be applied to items on importing the information from the CSV file back to PPM Express (the items will be updated with the information from the CSV file). 

Roadmaps can now be added to MS Teams channels if the PPM Express app was installed for MS Teams

Before:

You could connect PPM Express to Teams channels and add PPM Express projects, programs, portfolios, my space page, and challenges to the required Teams channels and manage them from Teams directly. 

Now:

It is also possible to add PPM Express Roadmaps to the required Teams channels to open and manage them there according to your permissions.

The view of the Roadmap actions for items was redesigned on the timeline

Before:

To open the item for editing, clone it or delete the item from the timeline view, you navigated to the item and selected the required action from the list.

Now:

To perform actions to the item: edit, delete, move to the backlog, clone it, you should select the item by clicking on it and then select the required action from the list in the top right corner of the item bar.

Warnings were added to the Roadmap dashboard

If there are any items imported to the Roadmap dashboard and their start/due dates, progress, and/or status was changed (differs from the original item) a warning will be shown for such items both on the timeline and table view of the Roadmap dashboard. The warning number will indicate if all three values differ from the original ones, or only one/two. 

Linking is now available for Programs

It is now possible to link your PPM Express programs to a project from an external system (Project Online, Jira, Azure DevOps, Planner).

 An action to create dependencies was added to the Roadmap timeline bar directly

The ‘Show link’ option was added to the Style menu of the Roadmap timeline

It is now possible to update items imported to the Roadmap in a bulk

Before:

To update the Dates, Progress, and/or Status of the imported items according to their source values, the items were opened for editing one by one and the values were updated according to the source using the ‘Apply’ button next to these fields. 

Now:

An Update button was added to the list of actions to update the values for the imported items according to their source values faster and in a bulk.
