Dashboard Improvements: Sort Activity by Date & Quickly View Comment Items

Posted

One of the most important areas of Teamwork to keep up to date on what’s happening across your projects is the Dashboard section. The Dashboard shows the last eight activity items from the last 10 updated projects. Sometimes though only one item may be changed on a project and the last seven items for that project were also shown.

Lots of people told us via Feedback that they wanted to see more projects that had items added to them and also a greater number of “changed” items shown.

This month we’ve extended the Dashboard and added a Sort function.

The new Sort function lets you toggle between the old style of listing the last 10 modified projects and a new view which lists the last 100 items that changed.

This new view makes it super easy to stay on top of your Teamwork projects and colleagues actions.

We also took this opportunity to add a much-requested feature to the Dashboard and Project Overview – Comment Context.

When a comment is added to a File, Milestone, Task, Notebook or Resource, it was shown on the Activity List. You had to click into the comment to see what item the comment was added to. This month we added a tool tip to the comment entries on the Dashboard/Project Overview, so if you hover your mouse over a comment for one second, we’ll show you the underlying task, file, milestone, etc, that the comment was added to.

This gives much better context to the actual comment without having to jump into the Comment View page.

This is only the start of our list of improvements to the Dashboard a,nd we have plenty more ideas to implement over the next couple of weeks.
