First, you can now import P6 XML (or .xer) files directly. Special thanks to Jon Iles at mpxj.org for his support. With his contribution we can import schedules of almost any format. The elephant in the room: because knowing the criticality for each task is important, and because P6 doesn’t include that info in its exports, we decided it was important to calculate float (criticality), with caveats.
Criticality is a function of total float (how many days a task can be delayed before it delays the whole project). P6 does include Early and Late dates in its export, so if you take the difference between them you have the float. However, the difference shouldn’t include non-working days. Because TimeTable only has one calendar, if you use one calendar too then there’s no issue. But, if your project uses multiple calendars for different tasks then the float values calculated in TimeTable could be slightly different than what your CPM software showed. We don’t feel this is a big enough reason to not calculate Float. Chances are your critical path won’t change at all.
Supporting multiple calendars isn’t in our roadmap currently, but it is something we have our eye on.
Our old color legend was functional, but the UI wasn’t great. There were 3 different dropdowns to choose a single option, if you had parameters to color code by it wasn’t obvious, if you didn’t have parameters to color code by that wasn’t obvious either. So, we completely overhauled the Color Legend. Just a single dropdown based on how you want to color code, and it only shows you the options that are available.
Not only this, but the colors that you choose are now the ones that appear on the TimeTable, not pastel variants which was hated, by all.
We had this in our very first release, but it broke in our second release and we now just fixed it: Our new UI makes it more obvious: you can manually color code activities.
Add all the possible values in the Color Legend >
Manual: Responsible and they'll then appear as an option when you double click on Activities.
Plus, depending on which Color Legend you have active, when you drop a manual task you'll automatically be prompted to choose which value to color by.
Pretty self-explanatory, after this update you’ll automatically get notified of new updates right within Visio when you have a TimeTable open.
Initial Beta Release
Timescale text sizes
WBS Containers aren't shaded gray anymore
Visual Indicators for Activities and WBS container that continue past the page
Activity Text leaders - doesn't have to fit in the box
Relationship Links are now straight instead of curvy
Configuration Window fixes
Timescale & TimeTable layout bug fixes
Tree selection fixes
Re-labeling a task with a name longer than the original name results in just the original name
Adding “Responsible” to manual tasks doesn’t generate respective options in the color legend.
Manually re-sorting tasks/wbs after a print range has been defined and then re-defining the print range causes unintended shape placement.
New Page only allows you to place a TimeTable with the same date range as your last TimeTable
