What's New Explore the enhancements we added this month

July 2019

Spotlight

Auto-save is now enabled in Schedule and Resources to help protect data integrity.

Whenever an item is added, deleted, or updated, the change is immediately saved to the database.

 

Undo and redo is now available on the Activities, Resource, and Role list pages.

The Evaluation page is enabled for Programs.

Evaluation scores provide a consistent standard for comparing programs, based on their alignment with company objectives. The new page enables administrators to define evaluation categories and their respective weights and weight percentages.

Enhancements

Overview dashboards can now be hidden for Workspace, Project and Portfolio dashboards. In previous releases, they were always displayed.

Use resource, role, and budget information to create charts to display in dashboards.

The P6 XML import log now provides more information if issues arise when importing resource assignments, WBS elements, relationships, and activities into Primavera Cloud.

Import Configuration data now allows user-defined fields to be imported if they exist in a non-parent workspace. In previous versions, if a UDF existed in a sibling workspace, it could not be created as it already existed in the database and therefore was not inherited.

When a non-admin user creates or copies a project, they now have administrator permission for project files, custom logs and reports by default.

Participate in discussions on forms.

On a form set to the Project Context type, check the Enable Discussion option under Form Properties, and give stakeholders the option to review and add comments. When a form is used as part of a workflow, comments are available to task performers in subsequent steps. In addition, comments on forms are added to the discussion thread for the associated project on the Projects listing page.

Tasks is renamed Lean to better reflect its function as an application for Lean Scheduling purposes. Although the app is renamed, the sidebar icon remains the same as does each individual page within the app.

The P6 XML import results log is improved to provide:

  • An option is added to handle conflicts between shared data in the target and parent workspaces.
  • More information about how shared data was imported.
  • More information about how project level data was imported.
  • Consistent log results dialog across Primavera Cloud regardless of where the information is accessed.

Send notifications to stakeholders – users or groups – when an automated workflow task has completed. Select an automated task on the Workflow Configuration page, Under Notification Options, select the users or groups that you want to notify when the task is complete.
