PPO Features that we’ve introduced (and loved) in 2022!

At the start of the year, we made a commitment to accelerate the development of new features and enhancements to ensure that the product keeps moving forward. Our DevOps team has been working tirelessly to bring new features, some small but all mighty in improving your user experience. The journey started with the introduction of our first widget which brought you interactive Gantt views, improved filter controls, improved formatting and general usability improvements. There’s no question that 2022 was a year of awesome new features but let’s recap some of our more recent enhancements.

Working with Widgets on List Pages

Our widget journey continues with the introduction of the interactive donut and tree map chart widgets. These new widgets make it easier for users to visualise their data in the list with less clicks.  You’ll of course still have access to dashboards for graphical representation of your data. Check out this short video aimed at PPO users that covers how to set up these widgets on list pages and restore default settings.

Why PPO Health Indicator RAGs are not Automated

The RAG acronym stands for RED, AMBER, GREEN. These colours make up the traffic light colours used by most project managers to convey their subjective view of a project’s status. A RED traffic light normally indicates there are problems on the project (or an aspect of it); AMBER indicates there are issues that are being dealt with by the team but acts as a warning, and GREEN generally indicates that everything is okay.
