Release Notes

Version 2.0.1

12.03.2024

    Improved:

    • Allowing location tasks to span over 5000 days and subtasks to span over 20000 days, up from a limit of 1000 days for subtasks.
      This will allow for longer-running tasks, resulting in fewer requirements for splitting subtasks.
    • Added a bunch of error-catching into areas where the engine could potentially be caught in a bad state. If this happens, Tactplan will now inform of such and recommend refreshing the page after you attempt to save your data.

    Bugs:

    • Fixed an issue where authentication could fail if a computer was set to sleep for an extended period of time with Tactplan open, and an attempt was made to continue using Tactplan without refreshing the page.
    • Fixed an issue importing new durations on split tasks in the grid with quantities attached.
    • [Hotfix 9/2] Fixed an issue with the schedule. Sometimes, thinking activities are too short duration even though they are not
    • [Hotfix 12/2] Fixed a syncing issue happening after the schedule had been open for a longer period of time
    • [Hotfix 12/2] Fixed an issue if splitting failed; it would still try to clean up dependencies
    • [Hotfix 13/2] Fixed an issue with selection in the network diagram
    • [Hotfix 13/2] Updated messages when rejecting invitations as a manager
    • [Hotfix 13/2] Fixed an issue with holidays sometimes duplicating if saving multiple times without reloading the schedule
    • [Hotfix 19/2] Removed intervals from the undo/redo transaction system due to an error that would cause it to not be saved to the server if undone and redone shortly after creating it
    • [Hotfix 22/2] Expanded the area to which a root location in the locations page could be moved to be accepted as a valid move
    • [Hotfix 26/2] Fixed an issue where a calendar would sometimes not apply correctly to the new part of a recently split subtask
    • [Hotfix 4/3] Fixed an issue with takeoff items (quantities) when copying a schedule

    Version 2.0.0

    09.02.2024

    New:

    • Quantities
      It is now possible to add and import quantities by location to Tactplan. This can be achieved by entering quantities manually, importing from CSV, or copying/pasting. These quantities can be linked to tasks where they can drive the durations of the linked tasks together with any linked resources.

       

      A new view has been added under Setup. In the Quantities view, quantities can be added or imported and linked to tasks.

      In the Task details panel, a new tab is now available. Users can link or unlink one or more quantities in the Quantities tab by adding or removing them. A quantities default consumption rate (hr/unit), which converts the quantities to work (in hours), can be changed for the specific link. The task’s quantities distribution can be seen in the Quantity by locations panel.

      In the Resources tab, ramping up or down by Crew count, Resource count, or productivity will now affect the duration when quantities are linked to a task. The same can now be the case for tasks without linked quantities by first enabling the “Update by duration by resources” slide toggle.

      Improved:

      • Import/Export
        Updated the import/export workflow, buttons, and components to allow for greater transparency and improved validation feedback when using this feature. This will allow you to check how Tactplan interprets your data before importing it into the platform. It will also help spot and correct errors in data or unaccepted inputs/formats.

      Version 1.4.3

      20.11.2023

      New:

      • New color palette. The primary reason for updating the default color palette is to offer more distinct colors than the previous color palette. This will allow for more precise and more effective commutations of a schedule. Secondly, a network group of planners has made a resource color legend, which can become the standard for the construction industry. We want to support that as best we can. See the code below, and read more about it here (Danish article)
        For the selection of the colors, we have reviewed a lot of existing color palettes, analyzed them, and compared their color settings. We found more suitable palettes and chose one with 32 distinct colors. The colors in the palettes were adjusted slightly to match their use for schedule planning better.
      • Filter tasks by dates. Option to filter tasks by start date, end date, date, or date range. Choose the filters menu in the upper right corner.

      Improved:

      • Increased the number of view settings saved for the different views to include resource graph, progress, row height, task layout, and workday setting. Also, the latest viewed dates on the timeline are saved for each view for more effective scheduling.
      • Option to toggle showing working time, work days, and holidays as separate options. Choose the menu in the upper right corner.
      • Resource graph now considers the tasks’ nonworking time when showing where its resources are allocated.
      • Drastically reduced the time it takes to delete a schedule.
      • Reduced the time it takes to copy a schedule.
      • Print has had a few updates, including preview changes, settings saved between views and having to save before printing.,
        You now keep the settings between prints. Tactplan is saving your setting from the previous print.

      Bugs:

      • Fixed an issue with schedule crashing if inserting dates too far in the future (events are now disabled to function 20 years from the project start/end date)
      • Fixed an issue with checkboxes not resetting properly when resetting filters
      • Updated a few translations
      • Fixed an issue with multi-selecting with shift on table view
      • [Hotfix 28/11] Fixed an issue with the task not being shown sometimes when the task edit panel is pinned
      • [Hotfix 23/11] Fixed an issue with dependency handles disappearing with some filtering options
      • [Hotfix 30/11] Fixed an issue with how half hours is displayed on the timeline from calendars
      • [Hotfix 1/12] Fixed an issue with collapsing locations in other views having an impact on the displayed flowline view
