  • When a project activity list was refreshed the page number indication was failing and showed NaN instead of the actual number.
  • End dates where not shown in the project activity list for rows with a phase

Project – Bugs fixed

  • Don’t show price and cost to user.  As a regular user it was possible to see the price and cost on a project if the project price model was set to project member.
  • Edit Activity dialog: total percentage of members allocated time could be over 100%. When set activity member’s allocated hours, the total percentage of allocated hours could be over 100%. Then validation of the activity will be failed.

  • Not possible to enter/save decimal values for project activity in the Invoice manager. It was not possible to add decimal values in the invoice manager (Edit hours). If a decimal value was entered the value changed to a zero.
  • Changing price level of project makes invoice amount wrong. When price and cost model was changed on project with existing data on the right canvas old calculations remained and showing erroneous values.
  • Previously it was not possible to set negative values when editing invoice rows. Due to that it was not possible to create credit invoices.

Edit Project – Improvement

  • Multiple success messages pop up when saving a project. When saving a project multiple success messages could be shown instead of a single message.

Project reports – Bugs fixed

  • Time format is not correct for Time Deviation Report. Due to an issue with date formatting in the Time Deviation Report the date field for employee and department level was showing “NaN-NaN-NaN” instead of the date.
  • Project Result Analysis Report excel export columns are misaligned when rows are expanded in the user interface before exporting.

Time reports – New

  • Time Analysis by Project Category – Employee. The report will show a comparison of how much of the employees time that is spent on a certain category of projects. The report can be used for:
    • See how much time your employees have spent on R&D projects compared to actual hours worked
    • Automatic calculation of R&D deduction
    • Elucidates if deduction is allowed or not

Reports global – Bugs fixed

Language support – Bugs fixed

June update 2018

QBIS in Danish

  • We are glad to announce that QBIS is now possible to use in Danish. Any Danish customers or users can switch on the Danish interface in their settings page.

Resource Planner – Improvements

  • If a resource was not already a member on a project, QBIS wouldn’t allow you to add the resource to a project activity from the Resource Planner. We have now updated the software to automatically add the new resource to the project at the same time as adding the resource to the project activity.

Project Page – Bugs Resolved

  • It certain situations adding more than one category to a project would not hold the additional categories, this is now resolved.
  • Adding project members to an activity didn’t bring across any central hourly cost and price for the resource. This has now been resolved.

Project Invoicing – Improvements

  • In the Approved Invoice section and the Invoice History section of a project we have added 2 new columns showing the number of non-billable and billable hrs worked connected to the invoice. This is very useful when looking at manually adjusted invoices to see what the adjustment related to.  Relating to this we have removed the option for viewing the invoice with adjustments as it is now redundant functionality.
  • The invoice history page has been moved from its own page to a new section underneath the 2 invoicing canvases on the Invoice Manager page. The benefit with this is that the project manager can see exactly how much has been already invoiced in the project while making new invoices, without having to leave the page.
  • We have made it much easier to split fixed priced items i.e. project and activities, than previously. Now there is a new menu item on the fixed price row on the approve time and materials canvas called “Split Fixed Price” which makes easy to divide the fixed price up into different parts and assign invoicing dates and invoicing texts.

Project Invoicing – Bug Resolved

  • There was an issue on the Prepare Invoices page when you deselect invoices to preview that the system would still show all invoices. This is now resolved.
  • If you added Invoice Text to a part of a fixed price item, the text would not appear on the invoice canvases, invoice report or in the export to the billing system. This is now resolved.

Project Time Analysis – Improvements

  • It was confusing when you set the time period for the report to show all data. In the report header it said “All” which leads you believe the report is for all customers rather than a time period.  We have changed this to say “Period: All”.

Time and Materials Report – Bugs Resolved

  • The report displayed the cost value for expense items and not the price value if it differed from the cost. This is now fixed.
  • The View details button now expands the details for materials and expense items, previously only time items would be expanded.
  • If the price model for the project was set to activity member then the report was duplicating activity. This is now fixed.
  • There was a calculation error making the unit price of travel km/mileage show the incorrect values on the report. This has now been corrected

Project Result Report – Improvements

  • We have added the Project code and department code as new columns that can be displayed on the report.

Project Report Scheduler – Improvement

  • The area in the report scheduler page where one set filters and settings for the report has been re-designed to improve the layout of the setting. It is now easier to see set all settings and filters for the scheduled report.

Project Templates – Improvements

  • Now when you create a new project from a project template you are given the choice to use the start and end dates set on the template or alternatively enter new start and end dates.

Project Templates – Improvements

  • We addressed an issue encountered by users with Project Management privileges couldn’t access the Project Templates page.
  • We addressed a problem that some users encountered while trying to display  Global Project Templates.

Project – Business Forecast Widget Improvement

  • The Business Forecast Widget has been updated to read the budgeted and forecasted income for activities, when the price model for the project is set to use the Activity price Model. Previously the forecast was using the project dates only when determining income.

Staff Ledger – Improvements

  • The Staff ledger has been enhanced to fulfill the requirements from skatteverket and to improve functionality for the managers.
  • Added possibility to retrieve historical data for any date range
  • Added possibility to filter data for a single employee
  • Added mandatory and non-mandatory fields in the export to fulfil requirements and to enhance the usage of the export

 + Backend improvements and bugfixes

June update 2016

Highlights

Now you don’t need to think about what to enter in the project code field when creating a new project. It’s now possible to have QBIS auto create your project codes. The codes are either created with a default prefix name or dependent on a specific project category prefix. The project code auto creation will also make sure there are no gaps in the numbering or that someone else takes your project code while you are entering your project details. Get started today by enabling it in the System module.
