Notable PPM Fixes
Department sorting the Enterprise Member Directory
We changed the way departments and subdepartments in the Enterprise Member Directory. Prior to this release, departments and subdepartments were grouped into two alphabetically sorted lists. Now, they are all still sorted alphabetically but will be merged into a single list. This change will make it easier for users to locate a particular department or subdepartment.
Status field icons in Requests tab custom views
Icons used by status fields were not appearing custom views created for the global Requests tab. With this release, the status field icons appear in the Requests tab custom views as they do in all other global tabs.
Summary tasks do not expand or collapse in Gantt charts
This release fixes an issue where users in the Gantt chart could not expand or collapse summary tasks. This issue only affected Internet Explorer 11 users. Now, all users can show or hide the tasks under a summary task in the Gantt chart.
Not all options being added to single-select pick lists
We fixed an issue which occurred when users were adding options to a single-select pick list using Internet Explorer 11 (IE11). IE11 users were seeing that some of the options they added in the custom field wizard were not appearing in the field itself in PPM. Now, all options added to the pick list will appear in PPM regardless of which of our supported browsers users are on.
