Possibility to filter on task type, a wildcard filter for the WBS and extended support for external dependencies between projects are some of the new features in Antura Projects 5.10.

Improved task filter

The task filter in Antura Projects has been improved to facilitate the management of schedules and provide more filtering options.

Possibility to filter on task type

It is now possible to filter on one or more of the following type of tasks:

  • Tasks

  • Deliverables

  • Milestones

  • Decision points

Possibility to filter WBS numbers with wildcards

WBS elements in a deliverable can now be filtered with wildcards. For example, writing “5*” in the filter, the schedule will show the WBS element “5” and all its underlying WBS elements.

Create external dependencies.

Support for external dependencies in projects

Antura Projects now has extended support for creating dependencies between projects.

Creating external dependencies

A brand new feature now allows the user to create dependencies between both a project's start or end as well as individual decision points and milestones in different projects. External dependencies can be created from both the projects' schedule and the project portfolio view Project portfolio – Project list – Gantt.

External dependencies visualized on portfolio level

In the view Project portfolio – Project list – Gantt, external dependencies are illustrated as arrows between the projects. A new setting in the toolbar makes it possible to choose whether to show the dependencies in the view or not. By hovering over the figure of the corresponding row in the columns “Predecessor” and “Successor”, it is possible to see detailed information about the existing dependencies for the projects.

Automatic notifications to project managers

External dependencies do not adjust the project schedule automatically. Project managers in affected projects will get notified when new external dependencies have been created or if a new conflict occurs due to existing external dependencies. The notifications will be sent to the project managers per e-mail.

Improved representation of projects in portfolio level.

Improved representation of projects in portfolio level

The representation of a project's total duration and decision points marked as “Start” and “End” has been improved and more explicit in the view Project portfolio – Project list – Gantt. The view now displays a lighter color for phases that occur before the decision point marked as “Start” and after the decision point marked as “End”.

If a WBS element is planned before the first decision Point, the first phase will be displayed with a dotted line. WBS elements after the last phase will be plotted correspondingly. The dotted phase is shown to clarify potential conflicts of external dependencies to a “Project global” task.

Full text search functionality for "My projects" on the start page

The start page has been extended with a new text search function in the box ”My projects”. It is now possible to search on the project name.
