The next MindPlan version will contain a few new features in the analysis view area of the product.
The most relevant thing is support for AND/OR in the filter selection of an analysis view:
In previous versions, all the filters in the list were automatically concatenated with an AND operation.
Now you have the choice between AND, OR, NOT AND and NOT OR. To build all possible expressions, the filter list is a tree from now on. If you only add one filter to the list, you won't see the difference. But after adding another filter, both appear indented below an AND node.
(For hardcore users: AND/OR can also be nested, there's no limit in depth)
There are also four new filters in the current developer build:
- resource (company)
- resource (department)
- resource (role)
- resource (group)
With them, you can filter out activities for parts of your organizational structure (defined in the MindPlan configuration database).
On the categorization page, the list of categories has become quiet large and confusing over the years. Many customers asked for some kind of sorting in the list.
So this is how the new list looks like:
In addition to those dialog changes, we also added a refresh functionality to the analysis views. They now check for new data when you press F9, like it's done for normal maps. No need to close/reopen them any more.
