Oct 3, 2016 Software Update
We are excited to announce the release of Arkit “Onyx”, an update with some major new features for improving productivity, control over shared information, and better management of the information that matters to you.
New Task Panel Layout
We have improved our task panel for easier readability and use. Within the main task panel, you can now view and do basic editing on all the projects' tasks without having to enter each task individually. View all your project tasks organized by due date, see which ones are dependent on another and who it is assigned to, and delete or update its status as you work through each task.
Often a task should not be started before another task (also called a dependent task) has been finished. It is these dependencies that drive your projects schedule. At Arkit we are proud to offer you now the ability to better organize your tasks for improved flow and efficiency by linking dependent tasks to one another to show their relationship. In an individual task pane, link dependent tasks by selecting “Waiting on” or “Next Task(s)” to show what needs to be finished before the current task can start and what follows after it is finished.
Clone an Existing Project
We’re always working to make Arkit faster and more efficient, and with this release we’ve focused on ways to improve your capability to work resourcefully. Often times companies will have multiple projects that contain much of the same information. As a result, a common feature request (we love the feedback, keep it coming!) has been to allow users to clone an already existing project. With this release now you can! In the summary panel of an existing project simply click on the clone project button and enter the locations for as many new projects as you want.
Restrict Viewing of Sensitive Information
At Arkit we understand that some information is sensitive and not always appropriate to share with other companies. As a results, we are excited to offer you the ability to restrict who within a collaborating company can see your budgets. When changing a collaborators role or inviting new people to collaborate choose a role that states “no budget” to prevent that person form viewing all budget information.
As with all our software updates, there will be new articles added to the Arkit User Guide to explain the new features in more depth.
