Controlled Availability Features

The following features will be released soon. Customers with Sandbox environments who would like to enable these new features should contact their Customer Success Manager.   

           

NOTE

This feature is in Beta  / Controlled Availability. To request early access, contact your Customer Success Manager. Planview, at its own discretion, reserve the right to accept or reject a customer request to enable a feature that is in Beta / Controlled Availability (i.e. “Beta software”) state. If a customer’s request is approved,  an addendum to the Planview agreement will be required prior to the enablement of the feature in the customer environment, to address legal terms related to the use of Beta software.

Feature
Resource Management
Retain Resource Capacity when Filtering Reports 

We are enhancing the treatment of Resources when Capacity Time Phased Data is included in a report and related to Labor or Staff Time Phased Data. 

There are three main changes:  

  • It is possible to choose whether filters set on Labor or Staff Time Phased Data fields restrict the resources shown in a Report. If they do not, only filters defined using User/Capacity fields will determine the resources that are shown. 
  • Resource Capacity is now shown for time periods where resources are not assigned to work items. 
  • There are now two Advanced Logic filter sections split between Labor/Staff Time Phased Data fields and User/Capacity fields. Filters need to be contained in the correct section to pass the syntax check and cannot be mixed. This is so that customers can opt to restrict resources shown using User/Capacity fields only. 

The new functionality will apply only after a report is created or edited. Existing reports will behave as before until edited.  

Reports & Dashboards
Licenses information in Reports

Administrators can now query License information in Reports & Dashboards, allowing to analyze:

  • license utilization %
  • license distribution by type, by PO
  • trial licenses

License information cannot be queried by non Administrators.

Reports & Dashboards
New Standard Folder, Reports and Dashboard

With the exposure of license information in reports, we are adding a new standard folder License & User Adoption under Reports & Dashboards that will be accessible by Administrators only. This folder includes:

Standard Reports:

  • License Utilization Report
  • User Adoption Report
  • Late Adopter Report

Standard Dashboard:

  • License Utilization & User Adoption Dashboard

License based reports and dashboards cannot be accessed by non Administrators.

Capacity Records

Today, Capacity calculation are critical to understand the assignment of work for Resource Managers. When Capacity calculation is not accurate based on the User’s availability, decisions on resource assignment may be affected. AdaptiveWork now supports out of the box scenarios. Learn more about Capacity Records

When the User is temporarily suspended, deleted and subsequently active, Calendar Exceptions can be added to AdaptiveWork. However, it is a manual intervention that can become quite complex if trying to automate through configuration. The Calendar exceptions functionality doesn’t allow Users to setup all scenarios. 

AdaptiveWork now supports out of the box Capacity change management across all the User lifeclycle scenarios:

  • User Invitation date is different than the actual working date
  • Capacity is accounted when User is deleted or suspended
  • User re-enabled/restored date is different than the actual working date
  • Handling mistakes or updates
  • Multiple Capacity periods during one single Active State

Removal of 'Buy New Licenses' button

Licenses, Add-Ons and Services are typically being purchased & provisioned by your respective Account Executive, based on your negotiated contract terms & conditions.

The Buy New Licenses button will therefore be removed from the Admin menu in the People module and no longer be available for Admins to purchase from.
