IntelliGantt BETA Update

Thanks to everyone for their feedback on the inital BETA. We've tackled a lot of issues and put in our final feature-- reporting!

No screencast yet because its getting late (or early, depending on your point of view). Suffice to say if you install this release ( you will see a new menu item called... wait for it... 'Report'.

IntelliGantt will initially recognize two SharePoint reporting web parts. The first one will be from Microsoft (part of that 'fabulous forty' template pack) and the second will be from Bamboo Solutions (their new Project Dashboard).

The idea is, as a project manager, you run a project with two constituents: 1) your team and 2) your management. IntelliGantt has always been great for the team, but now you have an additional 'share and update' capability-- you can describe where to create and update project reports.

Whether you synchronize your tasks or synchronize your reports, it can be done independently. The scenario is you may work with your team all week, synchronize every hour of every day, but at the end of the week you send the report data to a SharePoint web part so others can see the current state of things without getting bogged down in the details.

Speaking of details, check our latest release page for more information on the current BETA.

Screencast coming soon!
