This release has introduced new enhancements that will find be immensely useful to ingrain traceability, have clearer visibility and keeping team members well informed”, said Nagin, Co-founder of Zilicus.
Here is brief information of the features introduced in this version
Project Import = Project Templates + Learnings
Project managers can extend learning from their previous projects to reuse those in new projects. ZilicusPM lets users replicate existing project’s timeline to set the schedule relative to new project’s start date. While importing existing project, users will have three options as you can see in the image below. Users can simply import schedule, or import schedule along with project team resources and retain their assignments or include above two and import project resource groups also.
