This was a huge release, and we can’t wait to hear your feedback about the new features.

Multi-select – It’s finally here! You can now select multiple items at once to edit, move, delete… any ‘like’ action can now be batched and executed across multiple items at a time. Not only does this speed day-to-day operations, but multi-select improves performance on typical planning scenarios by an order of magnitude.

Email integration – It’s easier than ever to add new tasks with our new email integration feature. Copy the container’s email address. Then open a new mail. Enter the task name, owner, and ranged estimate in the Subject line. Notes in the email body will be added under detailed notes; images will be uploaded as attachments.

Right-click – Right click over any work item and a new menu will appear, sort of a cross between the “add” and the “actions” menus. This gives you quick access to the most common operations in LiquidPlanner, like adding or deleting an item, focusing your view, and printing your schedule.

Watch column – Add the “watch” column to give yourself an easy way to watch or un-watch any item with a simple click of your mouse. Just go to the plan tab, select actions >>> advanced actions >>> customize columns. Select watch and click save.

Additionally, we rolled out a big batch of small improvements to the scheduling engine and the printing feature. New and improved sample projects provide insight into optimal workspace architecture, whether you’re getting started or just adding new projects.
