Reminders

  • Defect fixes and occasional beta features are delivered weekly; most beta features and GA features (when ready) are delivered monthly.
  • 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.
  • We typically hold a live product release webinar on the Wednesday before the production release. This webinar will be hosted by PPM Pro product management and consulting personnel, and will include time for Q&A. Click here to register for the November 16th release webinar. Also, remember you can sign up for any/all upcoming customer webinars here.
  • 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.

Release Notes - Sorted by Release Date 

 

Release Date Function Area AgilePlace card Release Note Description
December 2 Login 1829518946 Fixed. When a session timed out, single sign-on and Planview ID users are presented with a secondary window to login. After authentication, the PPM Pro launched in the secondary window instead continuing the session in the first window.  Now, the secondary window closes properly and users can continue working in their original browser window.
December 2 Tasks 1841296418, 1841392861 Fixed. Exporting a task plan to XML format for MSP caused an error to be thrown in certain cases.  This has been resolved.
