Special Announcement

           

 

When we launched our new Reports feature, we also announced that Legacy Reports were going to be deprecated at some point. Now, in order to ease the ongoing transition to our new Reports, we have decided not to deprecate Legacy Reports. Instead, we are ending ongoing support for Legacy Reports. This means that we will not be addressing any bugs that arise in Legacy Reports or adding any new features or enhancements to it. You can continue to use Legacy Reports for as long as you need to, however, we strongly encourage you to make the transition to new Reports if you want access to our latest reporting features and support for bug fixes. To make the transition easier, you can use the report definitions in the Reports Cookbook to upload pre-made reports to your instance.

Release Notes - Sorted by Release Date 

 

Release Date Function Area LeanKit card Release Note Description
June 10 Tasks 1747922911 New. In addition to our current support for exporting tasks to and importing tasks from Microsoft Project files, users can now import and export PPM Pro task data directly to XML. This method increases the reliability of imports and exports and maintains compatibility with Microsoft Project.
June 10 Dashboards 1702977845 Fixed. In some instances, numeric time series fields in Dashboards always displayed "0" for their values. This issue affected instances that had their Locale set to a region that uses commas as decimal marks. This issue is fixed and time series fields correctly diplay data regardless of the Locale setting.
May 27 Resource Workbench 1730635947 New. The Resource Utilization Pane in the Resource Workbench now has a option to view resource utilization in weekly intervals. Previously, data in this pane could only be viewed in monthly or quarterly intervals. 

May 13 (sandbox)

May 20 (production)

Reports 1726676505

New. Users now have new configuration options for column headers in the following report types:

  • List: Basic
  • List: Time Series
  • Gantt reports

The new configuration options are:

  • Column label text color
  • Column label background color (like List: Stacked)
  • Column font, style, and size

May 13 (sandbox)

May 20 (production)

Permissions 1734392847 Fixed. The expand/collapse icons in the permission hierarchy were not changing with the state of the tree. Clicking on the icons would still expand or collapse branches in the hierarchy as normal. Now, the expand/collapse icons correctly reflect the current state of the branch they control.

May 13 (sandbox)

May 20 (production)

Reports 1724856929

Fixed. Users were encountering an error when trying to drilldown into columns in Column: Basic reports. This no longer occurs.

May 13 (sandbox)

May 20 (production)

Reports 1663483160

New. The display tab in the report designer has a new option to Apply project % to include that appears when a numeric portfolio field is added to the report. The option is a checkbox that works like this:

  • When Checked: Project values in the portfolio are displayed and aggregated based on the % to include.
  • When Unchecked: Raw project values are displayed. Multiple instances of the same project in multiple portfolios are only counted once for aggregation.

May 13 (sandbox)

May 20 (production)

Reports 1657360676 Fixed (Mostly). When running a report with a filter and show hierarchy enabled, the report would display blank lines where the excluded row would be. Now, the blank lines are gone unless the report needs to display the children of an excluded row. In that case, the parent row is still shown as blank.

May 13 (sandbox)

May 20 (production)

Reports 1535446746 New. We added the capability to select how filtering on two or more entities will return results. For example, if you apply a filter on portfolios and another filter on projects within the portfolios, you can select whether you want results to meet Any or All of the criteria in the two filters.
