FEATURE: The New and Improved Project Navigation

Are you noticing any changes in your project schedule? You might have noticed any changes in your project schedule. That’s because we just launched a new project navigation bar to make finding files, commenting, and managing project members faster and easier for everyone on your team. Cool, huh?
This update focuses on clarity and organization, which is in keeping with our mission to help your team save time managing your projects.
Here’s a quick overview of the new navigation system:
1. Summary
The Summary provides a quick overview of the project and any progress made to it. Below the project name is the total number and status of the tasks. The actual timeline can be accessed by clicking the blue Open Full Schedule button.
Scroll down to see your most recent progress updates, people you’ve invited, recent discussions, and all files that have been uploaded to the project.
2. Tasks
We consider the project schedule to be one of our most important features. So we kept its classic design and made some tweaks to improve organization.
You’ll notice that the Ganttand List views are now consolidated. Click the view you want to display your project in either a Gantt diagram or task list.
The Tasks tab automatically displays the number of tasks created for each project. This includes projects that were opened simultaneously.
3. Discussions
All of your sticky notes and comments will be found under the Discussions tab. The tab will display the icons of the members who have posted the most recent comments to this project.
4. Files
All files uploaded to project tasks can be accessed under the Files tab. The tab displays the total number uploaded. It can be a great motivator if you need to check your file count and determine if you have files you can delete or save for later.
5. Histories
The History tab allows you to view your most recent activities as well as revert any changes made to your project. To undo an action that was made to your project, click the link next to each activity.
Tip: Use the filters to the left of the screen for sorting the activity by activity type. This could be % complete updates or estimated hours.
6. People
The People tab is the final piece of our project navigation. It’s where you can add people or manage resources for the project. The design and layout of the People tab is the same as the rest.
Bonus: Sidebar colors to help with task and conversationcounts
The sidebar also features both light and dark blue colors for tasks due today as well as the number of conversations that took place since. This makes it easier for you to see how many comments have already been posted and how many tasks remain.
We hope you enjoy the new project navigation bar. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
