This Week in Bamboo (April 7th, 2013 – April 13th, 2013)

This week in Bamboo, we released the patch for Project Management Central for SharePoint 2010 to our storefront along with the following products:  List Search Advanced Web Part, Chart Plus Web Part, Data-Viewer Web Part, KPI ColumnRich Text Column, and List Rotator Web Part.  Please see below for a complete list of new features, additional limitation and bug fixes.

SA12 Project Management Central for SharePoint 2010 Release 4.0.123

New Features:

• Add a “Run Now” button to the reports under the portfolio’s Report Center to allow users to get the reports immediately instead of waiting for the timer job to run and for it to pull the data based on the query.
• Add a “Run Now” checkbox in the Bamboo Resource Capacity Configuration Web Part and the Summarized Risks per Active Project Web Part settings for the automated Resource Allocation and Capacity Planning Yearly reports and the Summarized Risks chart at the portfolio level. This allows the reports to display the data immediately when users visit the report page instead of waiting for the timer job to run and for it to pull the data based on the queries.

Includes updated versions of the following components:

Tree View Web Part R1.7.83 (file version 10.7.83)
