Announcing the Release of Project Management Central 4.1 for SharePoint 2010

[UPDATE]  Project Management Central 4.1 is now available for SharePoint 2013.

In project management, project managers and project teams manage many different aspects relating to project management, including issue management, risk management, task management, and resource management. However, the functions related to the triple constraint (cost, scope, and schedule) are at the heart of the project management, since the goal for any projects is to get things done on time and within budget, without having to sacrifice quality. Project Management Central is Bamboo’s bestselling application, and is utilized daily users the world over for its ease in handling the triple constraint. As mentioned in my Task Master release announcement, being able to assign multiple resources with adjustable allocation to the same task has been a popular request from our customers. Another request that we hear often is for improvements to the import/export and sync tasks between PM Central and Microsoft Project. In the version 4.1 release, we have provided improvements to these two functions, and we are also introducing new functions/enhancements for components that are included with with PM Central, such as Calendar Plus Web Part, Data-Viewer Web Part, and Navigators. The new release(s) will be available in about a month for SharePoint 2013.

Here are the details:
