Planning & Reports modules upgraded (among others!)
We launched the much awaited upgrade to Reports module around Christmas. The new version adds people and company reports, allows taking action from within reports and is simply the best reporting tool for activeCollab today.
Today, we also launched an upgrade for Planning module. This upgrade fixes some annoying bugs (with notifications and duplicate entries) and has an Export to CSV feature. We have also included a few other fixes and enhancements.
acHacks: Latest Comments First
We also launched a useful acHack. This one lets you show comments in reverse chronological order for tickets, discussions, pages and files. You no longer have to sift through pages of comments.
BTW, we also updated Copy Pages and Discussions with project acHack!
