  • You can request that beta features be enabled in your production environment by entering a support ticket (some beta features not initially available in production, Planview will advise). Please note that any issues you find will be handled during the normal development cycle. 
  • Planview sends out status emails in advance of planned and non-planned releases/updates/incidents. These alerts include the date and time window of the releases/updates/incident, as well as a link to the release notes that include a list of the issues addressed in the releases/updates/incident. To subscribe to these alerts, please go to https://status.planview.com/ and click the Subscribe button.
  • Inner circles are offered as a way for our interested customers to collaborate with PPM Pro Product Management and each other, provide feedback on PPM Pro product capabilities, and guide new feature development. Click here for more information or to register.

           

 

Starting in January 2023, the option to Import from MSP will be renamed to Import from XML. We encourage users that need to import data from Microsoft Project to import XML files instead of MSP files. Doing so will prevent issues that can arise from differences between MSP files from the online and desktop versions of Microsoft Project.

           

           

 

If your instance of PPM Pro has an integration with TaskTop Hub or TaskTop Sync you may need to take steps to ensure that you continue to experience smooth performance. This FAQ outlines the details of what you need to do to ensure your integration continues to perform as expected: https://docs.tasktop.com/home/jira-epic-parent-link-changes.

Atlassian has announced an API change to their cloud-based offerings which will very likely break existing Hub and Sync integrations. This change will begin to impact Jira Cloud users as early as November 30th.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Support at https://support.tasktop.com/hc/en-us/requests/new.

           

           

Action Required

Starting with the February 2023 release, PPM Pro will stop accepting requests that use a direct server endpoint in WSAPI endpoints in order to ensure data integrity. This change affects customers doing custom WSAPI integrations that are not managed by Planview.

Please verify that your integration is using one of the following endpoints to ensure your integration is not interrupted (be sure to replace "myCompany" with your DNS subdomain name):

<wsdl:port name="MainServiceHttpsSoap11Endpoint" binding="ns:MainServiceSoap11Binding">

   <soap:address location="https://myCompany.ppmpro.com/
services/MainService.MainServiceHttpsSoap11Endpoint/
"/>

</wsdl:port>

<wsdl:port name="MainServiceHttpsSoap12Endpoint" binding="ns:MainServiceSoap12Binding">

   <soap12:address location="https://myCompany.ppmpro.com/
services/MainService.MainServiceHttpsSoap12Endpoint/
"/>

</wsdl:port>

Note that sandboxes and production environments will have different subdomains (e.g. mycompany.ppmpro.com and mycompany-sb.ppmpro.com).

No change is required if your integration was custom built by Planview or is being managed by Planview.

Release Notes - Sorted by Release Date 

 

Release Date Function Area AgilePlace card Release Note Description
January 6 Projects 1855592289 Fixed. When creating new projects from templates with cross-project dependencies, local dependencies between tasks in the project were disappearing. This no longer occurs.
December 16 Reports 1834643455 Improved. The Reports grid loaded slowly when displaying large numbers of reports. Reports should now load faster into the grid.
December 16 ProjectPlace Integration V2 1820632684 Fixed. Clicking on a ProjectPlace URL in PPM Pro now opens ProjectPlace in a new tab.

December 8 (sandbox)

December 16 (Production)

Admin 1841350397 Fixed. Values in the Scoring module would shift after saving. This issue only occured in instances with a locale setting that uses a decimal comma. This shifting no longer occurs.

December 8 (sandbox)

December 16 (Production)

Resources 1805311829 Fixed. Custom contours were appearing as negative values in some staffing requests. This no longer occurs.

December 8 (sandbox)

December 16 (Production)

ProjectPlace Integration V2 1790093093 Fixed. When users set the WBS of an existing ProjectPlace workspace to be controlled by PPM Pro, its activities were creating tasks with broken links in PPM Pro. Now, when PPM Pro is placed in control, the workspace's activities are overwritten by tasks from PPM Pro.
