Release Notification 21 January 2013

A new version of Mission Control (version 1.14) will be released on the AppExchange on Monday 21st January 2013. This notification has been issued to existing Mission Control users.

What’s new?

Project ‘Deep Clone’

The new ‘Clone’ feature allows you select an existing Project and create a deep clone. This deep clone will create a copy of the Project, its related Milestones and their related Actions.

The clone feature is accessible from the Mission Control Console and an individual Project detail page.

When you select a Project to clone, you are able to assign the new Project with a name, set the start date and edit any record details on the Project, Milestones and Actions prior to saving.

Chatter Feed ‘Roll Up’

All Chatter posts on the records listed below will now ‘roll up’ to the parent record:

  • Time Log
  • Action
  • Milestone

This will allow a User to simply follow the Project record on Chatter to now receive a full view of all Chatter activity relating to any child record.

Whiteboard – Cancelling Actions

The Whiteboard ‘Trash Can’ that enabled you to set an Action’s status to ‘Cancelled’ has been removed and each individual sticky note now has a cancel action ‘icon’. To cancel an Action, a User can now simply click the icon as shown in the illustration.

Whiteboard – Time Logging

The Whiteboard now features a new time logging ‘icon’ on each Action’s sticky note. This allows a User to quickly log time for an Action in a pop up dialogue box without having to navigate away from the Whiteboard. To log time for an Action, a User can now simply click the icon as shown in the illustration, which will open up the dialogue box shown below.
