Recap of Our Mid-Year New Feature Product Webinar

We just wrapped up our mid-year new feature product webinar, and it was packed with amazing insights from our experienced consultants and practical tips from one of our users in the infrastructure space gaining a huge amount of value from using PPO’s Boards in team engagements. If you missed it, don’t worry—we’ve got you covered! In this blog post, we’ll break down all the key points and highlights so you can catch up on everything we talked about. Let’s dive into the main takeaways and see what you can start applying right away!

Highlights from the webinar
  • Multiple Select Custom List – No longer bound by the constraints of single-item selection, you will be able to effortlessly choose multiple items from a single custom list in one go. This multiple custom list feature will also be supported in filter controls, report and dashboard filter selection, dependencies, and business rules.
  • Retiring Custom List Values – We’ve acknowledged that over time there could be changes to business units or departments, cost centres get retired, markets that companies operate in disappear or strategic objectives that an organisation is chasing may evolve as some objectives might be completed and new ones added. To support these changes, we’ve introduced the ability to mark custom list items as inactive, to avoid some of the pitfalls of deleting custom list values.
  • Selecting multiple values in a list – Previously, when filtering a list, you could only select a single value from a Custom List, Resource List or Project List. The only way you could select multiple values in a list for these field types was to build a filter. The new and improved functionality will save time as it will alleviate the need to build filters.
  • Colour Coded Custom List Values – Clearly identify important work and critical points using colour to highlight project phase, issue overdue status, risk overdue status, work item status and so much more.
  • Interactive Board Views – The interactive boards give users the ability to edit the data on the cards without having to go to a new page, and YES, you guessed it, drag & drop of the cards so that you can easily move them through the status, across sprints, or any workflow column!
  • Copy Home Page Tab – Say goodbye to recreating your views from scratch as the new Copy Tab feature will copy and paste the panels, widgets, associated settings and filters.
  • Interactive Heatmap – With our new reporting component, we’ve improved the way in which heatmaps are rendered in PPO.
