Release information

Projektron BCS 21.3

From version 21.3, you can plan topics for your meetings and discussions efficiently and transparently for all participants thanks to the new agenda. The search field in the view selection now not only finds individual views, but also attributes and actions unerringly and reliably. Of course, the Projektron WebApp can also boast numerous new functions in the areas of expense and time recording.

Our new agenda for your appointment planning

If you have created an appointment in the appointment calendar, for example a meeting, BCS offers the possibility to add an agenda for the appointment. You can filter the collected topics of a project or task according to the status and priority of the topics, conveniently move the topics within the list using drag-and-drop, and assign individual topics to an appointment or even an entire series of appointments as a permanent agenda item.

If you plan and organize regular meetings or hold recurring meetings, these new agenda planning features in BCS will save you a lot of time, bring more structure to your planning and make your meetings more efficient.

This function is also included in BCS.start.

Metasearch: Finding not only views, but also attributes and actions

To find a view, the search field in the view selection is a tried and tested means. The search function of this metasearch has been extended so that you can now find not only views but also attributes and actions - a new feature that will benefit almost every user.

This function is also included in BCS.start.

Quickly display filter options

The filter options in BCS are extensive and detailed. For some users, however, it was not necessarily obvious at first glance which filter options are available for which column. For this very reason, BCS now includes a new option to quickly display the appropriate filters via the column header of the respective column. Permanently active and visible filters that you do not need can now be removed even more easily, comfortably and quickly. Since a large number of BCS users work with filters on a daily basis, this new feature of version 21.3 will be a significant relief for many.

This function is also included in BCS.start.

New interface to JIRA Cloud

For some time now, BCS has offered a plug-in for JIRA Server, the Projektron BCS Connector, as well as the JIRA SyncAdapter (JSA) web service, providing you with flexible mapping between project structures via JIRA's own scripting language JQL. BCS 21.3 now also provides an interface to JIRA Cloud and allows you to transfer tasks, work logs or estimates from JIRA Cloud to BCS. You can optionally exclude individual user stories, epics, etc. from the synchronization.

This function is also optionally available for BCS.start.
