The Complete List of March 2018 Orangescrum Product Updates

Hello Orangescrumers!

Hope all is going excellent at your end.

I am here to give you a quick view of OrangeScrum‘s March 2018 product update.

Unlike my previous articles, now you’ll get an idea how we encourage feedback’s and implement in Orangescrum. May be you can see your idea got implemented in Orangescrum?

Let’s start one by one updates…

Set right priority for your Project

One of our user Tricia requested us through “Feature Request”, why can’t be there a “Project Priority” of projects?

Tricia asked, “while each task has a priority, there is no way to tell what your highest priority projects are, as a project can have a task of various priority, but that is not indicative of how important the actual Project Priority is”.

She is absolutely right & a good suggestion as well; you’ll agree too!

We reviewed this and added immediately to our Cloud edition.

So how you can set priority of your project?

You can set the priority of a new project as well as all your existing projects in OrangeScrum.

To set the priority of a new Project;

  • Click on “New Project” from Quick Links or Menu or + icon
  • On the Create New Project pop-up, you can see the priority option at the top right corner.
  • Select your priority from “Low, Medium, High” and create the project with all other information.

Project Priority

You can see the priority of the project in the “Dashboard”, Pending Task in Analytics & in “Project” page.

Priority in Dashboard

Oh! You’ve created a project without any priority, no issues! You can change by editing the project and set the right priority.

March Updates of OrangeScrum Open Source Edition:

Document Management:

Document Management system allows to link, track and manage all project documentation in a well-organized manner centrally.

When a user creates a project, OrangeScrum will create a new folder with the same name in the document section.

Under the project (root) folder, it will have three default folders All Tasks, Archive & Master.

Under the Master Folder, a user can create multiple folders. You can create sub-folders too. You can upload files directly to any folder without attaching the document to any task. As an account owner, you can define who’ll access the files and folders.

Files and Folder Permission

Folder and File permissions management has also been baked into the Document Management system.

Version Management :

While uploading the same file, if you select keep option, the version of the file will be changed automatically. With selection “Delete”, the new file will replace the old file.
