BizDock R1.3 Release note

Timesheet

BizDock now includes a full Timesheet system, including non-Initiative work management. Time can be booked against a planning Package to get more fine-grained information on what your Employees are working. Manager can also approve Timesheets of their Employees and even send reminder for those who did not fill it on time.

Planning package

BizDock provides now the capability to define planning Packages for an Initiative. They can be used to model a deliverable (like a “Business Requirements document”), a project Milestone (“Start of Test phase”), a project phase (“Development”). They allow a more detailed planning of the initiative without interfering with the Governance Milestones. Allocated Actor and Org Unit can also be assigned now to planning Package (replace the task type concept).

Reporting - more format

BizDock reports now support also the CSV and PDF formats on top of Excel. Customized reports are now available on demand, totally tailored to your needs.

Plugin Manager

The Plugin Manager allows to connect BizDock to other Tools and System (like Jira or Redmine). With this release, the 4 first plugins available are: Redmine, Subversion (SVN), Jenkins and Load Actor.
