|Integration writers: update API proxy endpoint by March 16||
Users who are writing their own integrations to Innotas need to update the endpoint api.innotas.com to use their DNS subdomain. For example: mycompany.innotas.com.

|Function Area||ID||Release Note Descriptions|
|Import, Tasks||1758948779||Fixed. (IE problem only) An error is no longer thrown when importing tasks from MSP.|
|Filters||1758941971||Fixed. Filters now returning results as expected.|
|Filters||1758953462||Fixed. When running timesheet summary reports, you can now filter on administrative time types.|
|Resource||1758943028||Fixed. The Can Edit Calendar resource property can be enabled/disabled as expected.|
|Self-Service||1758820001||Fixed. User-defined lookup lists are available to associate with multi-select lists in SSA.|
|Timesheets, Alerts||1758260068||(Planned). Weekly timesheet alerts based on unsubmitted but not overdue timesheets now work as expected. These alerts are successfully sent to all resources.|
|Timesheets||1758941419||Fixed. Timesheet approvers can see unsubmitted timesheets for the resources for whom they are timesheet approvers.|
Fixed. Custom UDFs can be created for some grids that are not supported by self-service administration.
|Function Area||ID||Release Note Descriptions|
|Admin||1595727088||New. Schedules for inactive timesheet alerts will be marked "inactive" in Admin > Scheduled Jobs.|
|Alert||1758750865||Fixed. Date formats used in automated staffing request email alerts now respect the current user's locale setting. Previously, the current user's date preference/locale was not being honored.|
|Calculated Fields, Filter||1758747860||Fixed. The count for the usage of a calculated field now includes filters.|
|Calculated Fields, Self Service||1758705591||Fixed. Calculated fields with no references can be deleted. Previously, if a calculated field was used in a report that had child reports, the child reports were not deleted when the parent reports were deleted. As a result, the calculated field referencing the parent report could not be deleted. This has been fixed.|
|Cap & Demand, UI||1758192296||Fixed. Capacity & Demand output exports to Excel and renders white cell backgrounds if the demand and staffed values are zero, as it does in the UI.|
|Dashboard||1757929875||New. You can now include up to 15 email addresses for notification when a dashboard has been published.|
|Dashboard||1758715711||Fixed. Exporting a report on its own to Excel and exporting a dashboard that contains the report results in the same cell formatting/height in Excel output.|
|Expenses||1758634392||Fixed. When entering an expense, the system now checks that the date is valid. For example, if the year was entered as "20162017", the system will default in the start of the current month and the start of the next month for the to and from dates. Previously it was trying to process 20162017 and melted down.|
|Filter||1757900662||New. A new filter field called "Resource: Is Unit Manager?" has been added. This is useful for creating filter-based groups.|
|Import||1758191703||Improved. To import projects using the Data Import facility, you need to be a member of the Admin group, and no longer need to be a member of the Organization group.|
|Import, Capacity & Demand||1758885996
|Fixed. The data import facility had been incorrectly importing contours, and when the imported data was used for capacity and demand reports, a "nullError" was thrown. This has been corrected such that the cap/dem reports no longer display this error. Note that PPM Pro operations corrected this invalid data during the week but this release will prevent the situation happening again.|
|Import, WS API, Groups||1758668150||Fixed. The API and Data Import facility now prevent adding a resource to a group more than once. Previously, the UI prevented this from happening, but not the API/Data Import.|
|Permissions, Project||1758553435||Fixed. Project Notes and Status Comments can be edited and deleted by the owner only.|
|Project||1758873832||Fixed. In project Staffing, using the Advanced search feature in the Find Resource dialog works as expected. Previously, the system through an error after select some criteria and clicking Search.|
|Project||1595656323||New. In the project Staffing screen, if no headcount or hours are entered for an allocation, "0.00" is displayed in contour cells within the allocation start-end date range. Contour cells outside of the date range are blank. This makes it easier to distinguish which contours are within the allocation range.|
|Project, Permissions||1758271055||Fixed. If a user does not have permission to view a template, that template will not be available when using the Populate from Template feature.|
|Project, Staffing||1758814206||Fixed. The Advanced Search feature in the Find Resource dialogs (project/Staffing) works as expected and no longer throws an error message.|
|Project, UI||1758681331||Improved. The project section "Team: Profile_Based" has been renamed "Team".|
|Reports||1745206049||Fixed. Configuring colors for crosstab column chart reports work as expected.|
|Reports||1758153426||Improved. When exporting Gantt reports or printing project/task Gantt charts, PPM Pro will attempt to maintain the same units that the user had specified, if such units can be displayed reasonably. For example, if the user is zoomed to see quarters in the top of the Gantt, PPM Pro will export with quarters on the print. In some cases a different unit will need o be used when the printed date range is too large for the user's current zoom level. In that case, PPM Pro will zoom out to the next best unit that will export/print.|
|Fixed. Audit history reports return expected results when using different date ranges.|
|Fixed. Deleted entities appear as "Deleted" in audit history reports - previously that were listed as "Modified".|
|Fixed. Multiple lines no longer display on the y-axis on column charts in cases where there should be only one.|
|Reports||1758422128||Fixed. Reports sorting on number fields no longer give a "comparison error" during sort.|
|Reports||1758432347||Fixed. Reports based on the All Baseline Details report source works as expected when more than 2 baselines are included.|
|Reports||1758684847||New. To protect visibility from un-permissioned users, only administrators can view deleted fields in audit history reports. Once a field is deleted the system can't determine the permissions prior to deletion, thus limiting to administrators.|
|Reports||1758785792||Fixed. Red/Green/Yellow indicators in reports exported to Excel are displaying as expected.|
|Reports, Dashboard||1758279563||Fixed. When printing dashboards that contain list reports, the report column headers display as expected at the top of the page and do not repeat in the middle of the report and over-print the report data.|
|Reports,Filter||1745213088||Fixed. The report source "All Tasks under a Summary Task" respects filter as expected. Specifically, you can create a filter that returns only child tasks that are not leaf tasks.|
|Resource||1745179604||Fixed. The system prevents deletion of resources who are assigned a billing rate.|
|Resource||1758832734||Fixed. In Resources/Skills Profile, skills can be edited and saved.|
|Resource||1758681054||New. The field label "Manager" on the Resource record has been renamed to "Unit Manager".|
|Resource Staffing||1758732538||Fixed. The "Copy from URL" menu option was mistakenly displayed in the Actions menu for the Resource Workbench. Not surprisingly, this did not work. "Copy from URL" has been removed from the Resource Workbench Actions menu.|
|Resource Staffing||1758819445||Fixed. In the Find Resource dialog, when you hover over a Harvey ball, the Current Allocation Details dialog now displays the allocation details.|
|Self Service, Asset||1757758541||Fixed. Asset classes can be deleted, and no error messages display when navigating to other entities.|
|Task||1595409396||Fixed. Task titles can contain special characters. Previously if a task title contained a special character it would not display in the grid (prevented the task grid from loading).|
|Task||1758790474||Fixed. Colors defined on task-level lookup list are used in Gantt charts according to the Color By drop list.|
|Task, MSP||1758397615||Improved. As part of our ongoing effort to update the user interface across the product, the Actions > MSP Import dialog has been upgraded to use the new framework.|
|Task, Filter||1758741312||Improved. When copying or importing tasks, if you select a filter and then choose "Make This My Default Filter," that filter will be the default the next time you copy/import tasks. Note that the Copy and Import dialogs will maintain their own "default" filter.|
Fixed. Choosing to Load Previous Timesheet entries from weekly timesheet periods ending on or before 2/10/18 into timesheet periods starting on or after 2/11/18 now correctly populates tasks that are eligible for time entry.
This fix is specifically for the timesheet periods mentioned; there are a couple of outstanding issues in this area with regard to pinning that are not included in this fix.
|UI||1758684387||Fixed. (Windows 10 with IE11) In the top navigation bar, the dropdown arrow that displays the overflow menu (contains icon/labels that don't fit on the screen) is always available. Previously, in certain scenarios, this menu control became inaccessible.|
|UI||1758822354||Improved. The "Forgot Password" link now display the message "Please contact the PPM Pro administrator at your company and follow your company's process for retrieving passwords." Previously the link led to www.innotas.com, which was not useful.|
|UI, Usability, Search||1758704900||
New. Searching in PPM Pro has been enhanced as described below.
Support for word-based (disjoint) searches in the following areas:
Expanded searching now includes the following fields:
Note that your search results might initially look like they don't match your input, but remember that the search now picks up words in additional fields. For example, in the Find Role and Find Resource dialogs, you might get a result that matches a word in the Role Description field, even though you don't see the Description in that dialog.
|User||1758770667||Fixed. Stakeholder users will only see the Request tab if they have permission according to one of the following: are on scoring team, a gate owner, on approval team, or have Can Create Requests checked on their user record.|
|WS APi, Tasks||1758873949||Fixed. WS API now supports updating task role estimates while in project-level resource planning mode.|
