Here are some of the many recent enhancements to GamePlan.

 1.  Automatic Email Notifications

An email in your InBox each morning shows you exactly what needs to be achieved today to keep your project on schedule.  If your project is behind schedule, the email shows you what’s overdue.

The email also gives you an easy way to open the plan.

You control your email preferences in a new Notifications tab in Plan Settings.

For existing plans, you will need to turn on the Daily Summary.  New plans will have the Daily Summary turned on by default.

Coming soon is the ability to automatically email people working on the plan their own daily activity list.

 

2.  Timesheet report enhancements

There have been a number of enhancements to the Timesheet report, including:

  • the ability to filter the report by person
  • the ability to filter the report by date range
  • total hours reported
  • the preservation of all notes
