Release information

Projektron BCS 23.1

Projektron BCS offers a wealth of functions for your entire project management and for handling your business processes. To make these functions more intuitive and user-friendly to use, the new Projektron BCS 23.1 version is all about optimizing performance and usability. You will benefit from shorter loading times, especially in resource planning and project scheduling. The workload display for user groups in the project plan and work schedule promises a better overview. The new copy-by-dragging function provides all BCS users with greater ease of use and considerable time savings when entering data.

Manual input of identical data in seconds: Copy-by-Dragging

Do you work with Excel? Then you are certainly familiar with the simplified input of identical values in a row or column by dragging the bottom right corner of the cell. This function is called "Copy by Dragging" and is now also available in Projektron BCS in a very similar way. In lists and trees, it is now possible in many places in edit mode to transfer content to neighboring cells by dragging.

The new copy-by-dragging function saves a considerable amount of time and effort for almost every BCS user when entering data manually. For example, in daily work scheduling, you can manage the entry of hundreds of identical values in just a few seconds.

This function is also available for BCS.start.

Security and performance: Manage TLS/SSL certificates, work schedule and WBS without long loading times

Using TLS/SSL certificates improves the security of your data by ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of information exchanged between the web browser and Projektron BCS. TLS/SSL certificates help protect the privacy of your data and guard against data tampering. With BCS 23.1, you as a user can upload TLS/SSL certificates directly via the new TLS/SSL Certificates view in the Administration workspace and apply them in Apache Tomcat.

Especially in the work schedula and when entering dependencies in the work breakdown structure, you benefit from significant performance optimizations with 23.1. You can now enter predecessors and successors in the work breakdown structure and project plan directly by entering the name of the desired work breakdown structure element with auto-completion or by using the object selection. Alternatively, you can define tasks and projects as predecessors or successors using drag-and-drop. The previous input variant with line numbers is still available via an option in the views. However, we recommend the new variant, especially for large projects, because it has better performance.

Utilization of user groups in the project and time plan

Do you plan the processing of tasks with the effort planning model "user groups"? Then BCS 23.1 brings you more overview and transparency: In the work schedule there is the new option "Consider assignments via user groups". In the time plan and project plan, the workload information for user groups is now also displayed for tasks planned via user groups.

This function is not available for BCS.start.
