KeyedIn Projects v5.7 – See how we have made it easier for project managers to update risks, issues and communications on their projects!

Author: Henry Bennett

In the 5.7 release we have made it easier for project managers to update risks, issues and communications on their projects with the introduction of Editable Grids. The Scenario Modelling functionality has been improved with the ability to model different groups of projects and combine them into a master scenario. The new Project Lifecycle feature will allow you to create your own lifecycles and define rules on how a project progresses through the lifecycle.

Track the business benefits of your projects and programmes with the introduction of the Benefits Management feature. Get greater visibility of your project task plans with the new Gantt Summary View. Publish your key task milestones to the business using the Deliverable Creation Wizard. A whole host of other improvements have also been delivered.
