This month's new features include linking project phases and assignments, a new project report, auto-locking timesheets, plus more!
Happy February! We've released a lot of features and fixes this past month that I'm really excited to take you through.
From improving our project phases feature to a new project report, there's something new for everyone to enjoy.
You can reach out to us with any questions or comments about these updates at email@example.com or through the in-app chat.
Spruce up your planner with more colour by linking your project phases with assignments. This will make it easier to visualise how you're allocating your people throughout the project lifecycle.
After creating a linked phase and assignment, you'll still be able to move the phase and corresponding assignment separately for planning flexibility.
Timesheets now include phases (if your project uses them)!
For timesheet-only users, Runn will automatically log their time to the phase they were scheduled for. As an admin or editor, you can edit phases on other people's timesheets and on project timesheets.
These time entries will provide incredibly useful phase-based data in the phases table we introduced last month, viewable on all project dashboard pages.
Have a look at our help doc for more information.
No more having to switch between every project dashboard page to gather important project metrics!
This new report allows you to view these stats for all your projects in one place.
Since we have a number of reports now, we've updated the naming of some of our reports to make things clearer for you:
Have a look at our Reports help for more information.
Admins can lock timesheets so that Editors, Viewers, and Timesheet Only users cannot go back and make changes after a chosen number of weeks. Only admins will be able to go back further and make changes to timesheets.
Head to Settings > Account Settings to set this up and choose how many weeks to lock timesheets after. Editors, Viewers, and Timesheet Only users will see this note when they want to scroll beyond that week in their timesheets.
Did you know that you can use placeholders in Runn? Learn why placeholders are useful in resource management and how to use them effectively.
We sneaked in a small surprise update! It's now easier to add people and placeholders to your projects, we've added a few more questions at sign-up, and we've improved the speed of data exporting.
