New features in Novacura Flow 6.5

New Calendar control for all clients. Calendar control in Novacura Flow

The new Calendar Control makes it easy to handle any date based items. You can, for example, get an overview of all your planned work or your reported hours. You can also report your time or create a new task directly from the Calendar.

Endless planning possibilities with visual planning in the Portal – Gantt, Kanban & Resource Buckets.

In this version of Flow we release three brand new Portlets for Visual Planning, each with its own view of the planning information: Kanban, Gantt and Resource Buckets. For all three portlets you have configurable data sources that will get you any data you need for visualizing planning information. Drag and drop editing will trigger workflows executing the business logic needed for the event.
