Cerebro New Features
Cerebro speed is drastically increased while:
task properties editing, esp. while multi-task editing
task copying, duplicating and multi-task creation by files drag-n-drop into Navigator.
and all the rest functions work much faster now!
Material Resource Usage Reports
A new feature developed - material resource usage reporting.
Declared material resource usage is approved the same way as man hours are - by Review or from the context menu.
Material resource usage hours are calculated separately and independently from users' man hours.
Material resource usage time can be rated (Administrator -> Salary) and included in stats reports.
Advanced Copying Features
First, a copied (duplicated) task preserves all the links between its sub-tasks.
Second, now a copied task can be pasted in two different ways: ordinary Paste (Ctrl+v) and Special Paste (Ctrl+Shift+v).
Ordinary Paste pastes:
tasks (without attached files)
links between sub-tasks
assigned human and material resources
Special Paste calls a dialog window where you can choose additional content to paste.
New Task Linking Mode
Now tasks can be linked in Navigator panel. Two new menu items added: "Select task(s) to link" (Ctrl+k) and "Link selected tasks" (Ctrl+l).
Task lists can be extended by 2 columns displaying the number of predecessing and succeding tasks.
Predecessing tasks column also indicates the number of completed tasks.
The Linked Tasks list in the Task Properties panel is extended by several columns as well.
