Notable Fixes

Empty Update Status Modal
We fixed a bug with the Update Status Modal that occurred in the Project Dashboard. When users attempted to update the workspace’s status from that page, the Update Status Modal would appear completely blank. Users could work around this issue by navigating to other areas in the workspace such as the Project Details page. This issue no longer occurs and users can successfully update their workspace’s status from the Project Dashboard.

Changing task Start Dates triggers error message
This release fixes an issue where users would encounter an error editing Planned Start dates on tasks with fractional durations. If the duration of the task had a value with two decimal places, any attempts to change the Planned Start date would fail. This issue no longer occurs and decimal values in task duration will not prevent changes to a task’s Planned Start date. 

Error with timesheet approval rules and routing
We fixed an issue that occurs when there are two timesheet approval rules, approval routing is active and there are at least two users associated with the second rule. If user approves the timesheet, meeting the conditions for the first rule, then the secondary approvers associated with the second rule each receive a request to approve the timesheet. However, since the first approval is the only one needed to complete the approval process, the secondary approvers cannot approve the “pending” timesheet and it remains in their queue, cluttering their screen. With this release, secondary approvers will not receive approval requests from timesheets that do not need their approval. Additionally, we will be running a script to delete any approval requests mistakenly sent by this bug. No timesheets or timesheet data will be affected by the script.

Queue Mode in custom views
This release includes a fix for the Queue Mode option in custom views. Previously, attempts to turn on the Queue Mode for a view could trigger the following errors:

  • In the Projects tab, enabling Queue Mode triggered an error message and block the creation or modification of the view.
  • In the Portfolio tab, views could be successfully created with Queue Mode enabled, but the resulting view did not have the ranking numbers and rows could not reordered.

Now, users can enable Queue Mode during custom view creation without encountering an error or finding missing functionality in their view.
