Release information

Projektron BCS 21.1

With version 21.1 of the project management software Projektron BCS, you can directly adjust remaining efforts in the shift plan thanks to a new editing option - for even more efficient project handling. The new interface between the Outlook client with Office 365 and BCS makes it possible to link an appointment with a task or a ticket in BCS already in Outlook. In addition, the customisable poster print for the Gantt chart offers completely new design options for illustration. 

Edit remaining effort in the deployment plan

As a project manager, it is now even easier and quicker to adjust residual efforts

Many project managers know from their own experience - residual efforts do not always reflect their original planning. In the past, if a project manager wanted to make adjustments to the shift plan, for example, he or she had to change the view in BCS. With the new version 21.1, a new column has been added to the shift plan in which you can directly store the remaining effort of your employees and explanations.

This function is not included in BCS.start.

Create appointments in Outlook and link them directly to tasks and tickets in BCS

New interface enables the use of BCS and Outlook without changing tools

The latest version of BCS allows you to assign tasks, projects or tickets to an appointment directly in Projektron BCS via calendar synchronisation with Exchange-Online (O365). This assignment is provided via RSS feeds in Outlook and linked to appointments in Outlook via insert or drag & drop. In this way, it is possible to plan appointments in Outlook in the same way as calendar synchronisation with Exchange OnPremise and, for example, to link tickets directly in Outlook with appointments in BCS as part of effort planning with ticket-scheduled tasks.

This function is also included in BCS.start.

Poster printing for your time-, project- and schedule-plan

Print out, stick on and keep everything in view

With our new version 21.1, you can easily print out your time-, project- and schedule-plan directly from your browser and make it available for all project members to see, for example in the conference room. Poster printing is possible via the download menu and can be customised according to your own requirements. In addition to the print format of A3 or A4, you can select the page orientation, add page numbers and scale down entire pages if required. Currently, poster printing is still an experimental function, but it easily supports plans of up to 12 pages.

This function is also included in BCS.start.

"We are very satisfied with the development of Projektron BCS and the functions added with new releases. So far, every new release has offered at least one new function that our employees consider as a "must have", which is why we have not skipped a major release since version 7.0. This is also facilitated by the very uncomplicated update process, which for us rarely requires manual intervention."
