PPM Pro International

The PPM Pro International inner circle is specifically for our global customers who often miss out on our regular customer monthly release and bi-annual roadmap webinars due to time zone differences. Although those official webinars are recorded, watching them is not the same as actively learning about and seeing key enhancements and feature demos, as well as being able to have live questions and answers. Likewise for our quarterly roadmap webinars.

This inner circle will meet on the same days as our official monthly release and roadmap webinars, but at times more convenient for Central Europe/Middle East and again for Asia/Pacific. Please join this circle if you would like to receive meeting invites to these reprises of the monthly and quarterly customer webinars held at a more convenient time for our international customers. Please note that all sessions are conducted in English.

ProjectPlace Data loss prevention (DLP) 

With growing concerns around security and privacy, organizations must have a firm grip on how content is accessed and shared within and outside their organization.

We are working on a new Data Loss Prevention (DLP) capability to help all our customers using Documents and would like to have more control over their content in ProjectPlace.

The idea is to provide a mechanism to identify such contents and control access to them in a more robust way. The capability also includes an audit trail.

In the Inner circle session, we will share our high-level ideas and some designs to give you an idea about the DLP functionality. We would love to get your feedback.

So, if you are interested in contributing to the direction of this feature development, please register to be part of this Inner Circle.
