The new MindPlan release 3.3 can be downloaded from the download areas of the MindPlan website (German / English link)!
The new root node type becomes available in the "New MindPlan" dialog after a restart of the MindPlan application:
In your new Portfolio MindPlan you then create MindPlan links to project nodes, deliverables or activities in the same database or even in a completely different one:
The project data is transferred from the linked nodes into the MindPlan links by using the action "Refresh portfolio" of the "Your next steps" sidebar panel:
There it is, your "one click multi project overview" in Map and Gantt view:
The red icon that you can see next to the link node title is a so called "due-date warning indicator". It is displayed when the linked node has assigned activities that are overdue.
The properties dialog of the Portfolio root node contains a few settings to configure the exact behaviour of the Portfolio analysis process:
With the option "Update of calculated values: Update target-nodes as well" you can make the portfolio process also write the project data into the linked node. This can be handy if you would like to display this data using classic Lotus Notes views.
New features in MindPlan / eOffice CRM combination
The following list is a translation of the German MindPlan 3.3 announcement which also includes presentation slides. Unfortunately, the announcement is not yet available in English language.
It's a bit early for screenshots or official announcements, but let's say we are working on a pretty huge Eclipse based development framework for application development for standalone, web based and mobile applications, with data storage in Lotus Notes/Domino or any other database system... :-) Karsten Lehmann | December 1st, 2011 09:16:06 | Comments (0) | Permanent Link
