June 4, 2018 Release
With last night’s release, we have introduced a major new feature to make BIM Track task management even easier for individual users: project dashboard. Project dashboard gives you a project-specific look at what affects your issues as an individual user. It will be the first thing you check when you log in, with an activity timeline that shows all activities that are relevant to you. It also includes metrics to quickly how many of your issues are past due and much more. Scroll down to learn more or visit your web platform, click “Dashboard” from your Project menu on the left-hand side, and start exploring.
Activity timeline is a user-specific “newsfeed” of various project activities that includes:
- New issues or any updates to existing issues, with issue numbers hyperlinked to those specific issues in BIM Track’s issue dashboard.
- Multiple issue updates at the same time will be listed as one entry with just issue number, whereas one issue update will show the issue number and title.
- New models uploaded/deleted.
- All users added/removed to the project.
The activity timeline is also more than a normal newsfeed, because you can tailor what you see. You can also use the filtering and calendar options at the top to quickly find what happened at any given moment in your issues. You can also collapse days or “show more” to see further back in time.
Due issues charts
Two charts at the top right show how on track you are with your issues. These are called Your issues and Project issues. Your issues, on the left, indicates which of your issues are overdue and which are on time. You can drill down to those issues as well by clicking on the “piece of the chart” you would like to investigate further. On the right, we see the projects other issues, which shows what issues are overdue and what are on time on the entire project.
Users activity monitors who from the team has logged in to BIM Track each day. If there is a significant milestone coming up, it is important to make sure team members are working to update and resolve their issues. Users activity automatically shows the last 30 days, but this is customizable.
