We put 50 new enhancements and fixes into 6.1. Here's the top four. If you have the Annual Maintenance version, be sure to upgrade by clicking on the link in ManagePro. See the the tips section below for more information.
1. ManagePro provides both a visual and audio alert for upcoming to-dos and events
Ever have an appointment slip by your awareness? Now ManagePro helps you avoid that situation by providing a visual and voice alert at the bottom left hand corner of the screen. It starts blinking 10 minutes prior to due date time and counts down minute by minute. Click on the Dismiss button to stop the alert. Click on the Goto button to review the details of the to-do or event. Adjust the number of minutes the alert precedes the task by clicking on File/Preferences/Todo/Event Alerts.
2. There's a new Search Window display for viewing all records updated in the last synchronization across the web.
If you are using a web-enabled version of ManagePro, you’ve probably wondered more than once, “What actually came across in the last synchronization? Which records got updated or added?”
Now you can view all of that information in one handy screen, plus drill down to view the details. To do so, select the Edit pull down menu, then the Search option. In the Search window check the MPro-Link box and click OK.
The display for what was updated in the last synchronization is as follows, with the details of each entry available by double clicking on the record’s title.
3. Annual Review and Score Filters have been added.
Five predefined filters have been added. The “Goals Marked for Review” filter displays only those goals marked for (the Annual) review. The Score field contents are a calculated value and cannot be accessed directly for filtering or sorting. ManagePro does come equipped with four predefined filters to cover the most common management and reporting needs. Clicking on the Filter button reveals the following Score Configuration filters in the right box.
- Score is less than 33%
- Score is less than 66%
- Score is red
- Score is yellow
Clicking on any of the above filters causes the resulting goal planner view to only display those goals matching that score criteria.
4. New Tool Tips
There are now tool tips in place for the left column icons and goal records. As an example, you can now see how many progress updates and how many outstanding to-dos and events are attached to each goal by hovering your mouse over the respective icon.
