Category: PivotPoint Web Part, SharePoint Planner, SharePoint TeamTime Comments:0 ;

New versions of Planner, PivotPoint and TeamTime are available that correct an incompatibility with Google Chrome v43+.

This incompatibility can cause the web part to be hidden when using the web part configuration toolpane (edit web part).

As Google Chrome is automatically updated it’s important that any customers who use Chrome update to the latest version.

You can download the latest trial version and upgrade by installing over the top – your existing settings will be saved and the License Key picked up to activate the full version.

New version of SharePoint Reminder – corrects a problem caused by Chrome v37

Date:October 27th, 2014 Author: Tags: , , , ,
Category: SharePoint Reminder Comments:0 ;

A new version (1.9.6) of Reminder for SharePoint which enables date based email Alerts  is available.

The main change in this version is to make it compatible with Google Chrome v37. Controversially Google removed a feature (showModalDialog) that has been included in most browsers since 1994 and is still part of the latest HTML5 specification.

We’ve also added

  • Improved compatibility with custom master pages or other controls that use jQuery and the ability stop reminder including jQuery on a page that already has it. (options under the Support tab).
  • Reduced storage requirements for state data to support large lists
  • Configurable Web Part processing timeouts (for large lists)
  • A correction to an error that occurred if you use List and View name with angle brackets in the title.

To upgrade simply download and install the latest trial version – your license key will be picked up during the upgrade and all your settings will be saved.

Warning – Once you’ve upgraded to v1.9.6 or above you can’t rollback to a version older than 1.9.6.

New version of PivotPoint – chart axis controls

Date:June 13th, 2013 Author: Tags: , ,
Category: PivotPoint Web Part Comments:0 ;

A new version of our PivotPoint web part for SharePoint is available – v 2.4.4

This new version adds options for manually controlling the scale and layout of the axis in charts.

Auto Scale

If you show values on the graph the Auto Scale option will scale large numbers to improve the display. For example 10,500 will be shown as 10.5K and 50,000,000 will be shown as 50M

pivotpoint-auto-scale

Axis Maximum & Number of Division Lines

Normally the maximum value on the axis and how many division lines are used is set automatically based on the data you’re charting. However with some settings – particularly small numbers it doesn’t always get it right. For example :-

pivotpoint-auto-axis

You can now manually specify these settings, in this example the axis is set from 0 to 10 with 10 division lines giving divisions at every exactly 1 intervals for a much better looking chart.

More details are in the online manual.

You can download and upgrade to the latest version without losing any settings.

TeamTime 1.5: 2013 and more

To start with: TeamTime is now compatible with 2013, at last! To upgrade to the latest version, just download and run the new installer: Download

As you may have noticed, TeamTime is the product we can’t help but keep polishing and shining as we hear more from our customers. So here are a few little tweaks to help make TeamTime that little bit nicer.

In order of everyday to technical:

Everyday folks

Just use TeamTime for logging time? The punchcard now shows the time logged so far without refreshing the page. Just click Start and watch it run.

Admin Gurus

You know how the menu shows all the different options to all users? Then does the whole “permissions denied” thing when they try to access them? Well now users will only see the pages they can use.

This means only Managers will see pages like the Team Overview and Analysis (unless you’ve allowed users to see Analysis), and the Settings page will only be shown to you.

There have also been a number of minor performance improvements: For those of you that have hundreds of Projects and Tasks, you’ll notice that this version is considerably faster to load the My Dashboard page.

Designer-people

TeamTime no longer has it’s own custom Master Page, and won’t reset it during upgrades. When you install this version it will switch back to the default Master Page.

In short, this means you can use your own customised/themed Master Pages in TeamTime, so it fits in with the rest of your organisation. Add your own CSS, JavaScript, or logos to make it your own.

Want more?

Tell us! We get all kinds of interesting requests and suggestions from our customers. Once we get enough requests for the same feature, it gets shoved to the top the queue for the next version.

Of course, sometimes we have to say “No, sorry” or “Not quite yet”, or very occasionally “I’m not sure that’s physically possible”, but you’ll always get a good reason at the very least. So drop us a mail: support@pentalogic.net

A new version of our Reminder web part for SharePoint has been released (v1.7.16) that allows you to send email alerts if a document is left checked out for a long time.

If you have document libraries that require check out before editing then you’ve undoubtedly been faced with the situation where documents have been left checked out – blocking other users from editing the document.

Reminder allows you to send email alerts after a period of time to ensure checked out documents are not forgotten about.

This example shows how to setup Reminder to send email alerts if something in a document library is left checked out for more than 12 hours.

The manual contains other common scenarios such as email alerts when Task/Due and Overdue, simple helpdesk in SharePoint, enhanced SharePoint alerts and more.

A new version of our PivotPoint web part for SharePoint (v2.2.3) is ready.

This new version improves performance for large lists, corrects bugs when you have angled brackets (“<” and “>”) in your row or columns, adds support for site column lookups and a 2 new features.

Sort by Title or Total

The new version of PivotPoint allows you to sort by both the Title and Total rows, either ascending or descending.

Title and Total cells

For example, instead of sorting alphabetically by product you can sort by their total sales – showing your best performing products at the top of the table or left of the chart.

More details are in the online manual.

Show Top N

In combination with sorting by the Total you can choose to show the Top N columns or rows.

For example given the following data the vast majority of revenue comes from 2 products (Bottle-o-matic and Can-o-Matic) and we have a ‘Long Tail’ of other products.

We can choose to only display the top 2 columns (products) and optionally group all the other sales into “Other”
