What’s New Task Due Date, Active Guest Users, and More Enhancements Released

Hello Orangescrummers! Right after making Zapeir Integration enabled within Orangescrum, we are releasing some enhancements updated to make our product more efficient.

We are very happy to announce that our customers are the best thing that has ever happened to us. We have been very cognizant of their needs and what would be best for them.

We’re always updating our project management software to improve your experience and bring even more simplicity to your project. This time, we have some major updates for you!

The following updates are all focused on making Orangescrum more convenient and bringing more simplicity to your project.

List of Updates:

  • Task Due Date
  • Active Guest Users
  • Kanban View Status Update
  • Subtask View Enhancement
  • Time Log Status at Task Detail Page

Task Due Date:

Every task must have a due date. And we always try to complete the task within the due date. But sometimes the due date keeps changing due to various reasons.

It might be due to dependency on other resources, resource unavailability, changing of the plan, or could be any other reason.

It make sense if the due date changed from the stakeholder’s end. But, when it changed from the end of the executions, it certainly needs an explanation.

Through this update, now you can able to know the reasons behind the change of the actual due date.

Let’s start, how to add the due date to the task.

Add Due Date

Users just need to put the date in the due date form at the time of task creation. And the due date will be reflected on the task details page.

Now for reason, the user wants to change the due date of this particular task and he/she can do it from 3 different view pages.

  • Task List Page
  • Task Details Page
  • By Editing the Task

Once you change the due date, you will be asked to put the reasons to make such a change with a popup.

Add Reasons

You need to put the reason in the form or you can choose the reason from the drop-down and save it.

The new due date will be shown on the task details page. Along with the actual due date for this task.

Due Date View

And each time anyone made the changes, the details will be listed in the comment section on the task details page. Details are:

  • Who made the changes
  • What is the new due date
  • In which time the changes are made
  • What is the reason to make the change

Due Date Modification Details

The Reasons are Pre-added?

No, the reason shown on the drop-down is not pre-added. You can add these at the “Due Date Change Reasons” page under “Company Settings”.

Due Date Setup

You can add some of the common reasons on this page as well as you can disable some of the reasons from the list. Technically it works like a template. 

At the time of submitting the reasons, if you would not find any appropriate reasons from the list, you also can write a new reason and save them. That reason template will be listed at the this “Due Date Change Reasons”

Use Case:

At the time of changing the due dates, you will not be asked to add any reason if your account belongs to the Default User Role Group under your company.

The Default User Role Group:

  • Owner
  • Admin
  • User
  • Clients
  • Guest

Excepting the Default user group user, the others will be asked to add the reason to make the due date change.

You also need to enable the Change Due Date Reasons at the User Role Management page for a particular user group. 

Enable Due Date

Active Guest Users:

In the recent past, we had released Guest User access so, you have been able to invite guest users to your projects and share the overall progress status with these guest users.

And this was a subscription-based feature. If you are running with 10 users subscription plan, you can invite 5 guest users whereas if you are running with 20 users plan you can have 10 guest users for you.

But previously we had limited guest user access for any organization. 

This means, when you create 5 guest users under your organization (with 10 users subscription plan), you were not able to add new guest users after disabling the older ones

Now, you can able to disable and enable, add guest users under your organization. Still, you can not cross the subscription-based allocated users.

Example: As per the subscription, you can enable 5 guest users.  Here you can keep active 5 guest years still you can add more guest users to your organization.

But the other users will stay inactive. You can enable or disable the users alternatively. Still, the boundary would be 5 guest users.

Kanban View Status Update

On the kanban view page, when users made the changes on the task status, the tasks were not moving instantly. 

Either you had to drag it or need to reload the page to find the appropriate status.

With this update, the task statuses are changing instantly.

Kanban View

Sub-task View Enhancement

This enhancement has brought into action after our new user reported an issue. On the sub-task view page, the appropriate subtasks are showing within the page but the “Sub Task” header was not showing to the new users.

With this update, we also have covered this issue.

Sub Task View

Time Log List at Task Detail Page

On the task detail page, when users were adding their time log, the time log list was not getting updated instantly at this page.

Users needed to reload the task details page to find their time log list.

With this enhancement, we have fixed that issue. Now users can able to see their time log entry status instantly without reloading the page.

Time Log List
