Card View for other SSA Entities

Card View provides an alternative to the standard entity grids. The first entities receiving a card view are Projects, Tasks, and Project Logs/Issues.

  • In this release, users can set a secondary Group By on their lanes wherever Card View is available. This will allow users to do things like view Requests grouped by their current Gate while subgrouped by Priority.

Release Notes - Sorted by Release Date 

 

Release Date Function Area AgilePlace card Release Note Description
November 4 Card View 1826883400 Fixed. To prevent user confusion when loading a large number of cards, we added a loading indicator to the Card View.
November 4 PPMPro-AgilePlace Integration 1797121981 Fixed. In PPMPro-AgilePlace integrations, there were edge cases that prevented custom list fields created in AgilePlace from being automatically recreated in PPMPro. Now, these edge cases are handled and new custom list fields created in AgilePlace will appear in PPMPro.
October 21 Reports 1817463805 Fixed. In Gantt reports on Projects, when showing milestones with tasks, hovering over a milestone task will show its % complete as blank. Now, the % complete field is hidden for these types of tasks to prevent confusion.

October 14 (sandbox)

October 21 (production)

PPMPro - ProjectPlace Integration V2 1809987141 Fixed. ProjectPlace Synced Cards no longer change the parent task's Duration and Dates (Start Target and Complete date)

October 14 (sandbox)

October 21 (production)

Reports 1731449836 Fixed. Finance Entry Actual Amount (Time Series) field correctly displays Monthly Value. Previously it was displaying Total Value.

October 14 (sandbox)

October 21 (production)

PPMPro - AgilePlace Integration 1679383393, 1728211503 Fixed. Changing a task's category to a category synced to AgilePlace now creates a linked card for that task in AgilePlace.

October 14 (sandbox)

October 21 (production)

Financial Entries 1696235490 Fixed. We fixed an inconsistency in the behavior of fields used as Forecast and Actual in Financial Entries. If the same field is used for both, making a field required in Forecast Details, no longer automatically makes the field be required for Actual Details.

October 14 (sandbox)

October 21 (production)

Projects 1810884676 Improved. Performance has been improved when the Net Present Value (NPV) field is part of the Projects grid.
