At Bamboo, a minor release of Time Tracking and Management Release 1.7 for SharePoint 2010 was released to the storefront this week along with patches of List Bulk Export, Alert Plus, and Data-Viewer Web Part. For more info about the minor release of Time Tracking and Management, please check out our Product Manager Announcement blog and see below for a complete list of bug fixes, great new features, limitations, and known issues about the new releases.
• Provide the option in the Timesheet Entry Web Part for users to either collapse all the Project Name groups or not collapsing.
• Provide the option in the Report Center Web Part for the administrator to give access to users to access the reports.
• Add the “View Report” button next to the Date Range for the Report Center. The report does not generate until the user clicks on the “View Report” button.
• Add shortcut to the Report Center on the left navigation.
• Shows “No data” error when extracting data using the date range and the selected start date for the date range falls in the period where no time was submitted.
• Show “No data” error when extracting data using the date range and the selected end date for the date range falls in the period where no time was submitted.
• Date column does not display based on the regional settings, e.g. Monday 12/23 instead of Monday 23/12.
• When accessing the timesheets under the Timesheet Entry, Time Tracking and Management displays the administrative time with duplicate records for some users.
• When there are a lot of resources and projects, the reports which contain the chart and the grid are very wide. The workaround is to narrow down the data filtering or select to not showing the chart.
• After a report with big data is shown on the customer’s template site, an error appears when paging about 20 items per page.
• If you access the “Configure Alerts” Control Panel page (AlertSetup.aspx) to configure alerts and have not installed and configured the Alert Plus Timer Job, the following error is displayed: “OnPreRender:: Could not load file or assembly ‘Bamboo.AlertPlus.Backend…”. KB.12690 for PM Central describes a similar error and how to remedy it.
• Grouping is case-insensitive in Report Center reports. For example, in a report that groups timesheet data project, data from two different projects with names “Project A” and “project a” will be grouped together.
• When adding views to the Report Views field for an item in the Report Configuration list, view names are case-sensitive. For example, “Approved Timesheets” and “approved timesheets” are not the same. The text must match the view name configured in the Timesheets list exactly.
• If the SharePoint environment for the regional setting of the source list in the United Kingdom, versioning settings of the document library is “Create major versions”, and a document file in the list is modified in multiple versions, List Bulk Export shows error: “String was not recognized as a valid Date Time” when attempting to export.
• Fixed cross-site scripting issue.
• Email not sent to all addresses in a list view if the “Item Limit” setting in that view is modified.
• Email not sent when CAML query created the Criteria Builder uses a comparison of less than or greater than.
• Email not sent when an alert is run on an Approval Workflow list Status column.
• Cannot start a workflow on recurring items.
• A list at a subsite contains a lookup column where it is a content type with a lookup to the root site. When using Data-Viewer and modify the value for this column in the datasheet mode, Data-Viewer shows an error: “Get SP List Error- List Name is empty.”.
• When the data source is List Rollup and the column of type Person or Group contains multiple values, Data-Viewer does not display data correctly for the grouping when grouped this column.
