Kanban: Accumulated hours per status column


In each status column the hours of all tasks in the column are added up. This is useful if, for example, you only have a certain number of hours reserved for the project. This feature gives you a quick overview of the estimated workload of all tasks in the project without having to open the dashboard. As soon as you move a task to another column, the number of hours in the respective status column adjust automatically.

Create custom fields according to rules


Wichtig You need to have administrator rights to create custom fields. 

Similarly to the document structure, you can create custom fields according to individual rules. This is convenient because not every field is relevant for every department. If you have a lot of custom fields, it can be difficult to keep track of which fields need to be filled in and which are only optional. With this new feature you can now define which fields are automatically displayed for which department.

Example:

The marketing department often creates documents that go through various feedback rounds before they are released for publication. Here it is convenient to have a custom field in the documents that indicates the editing status of the document. Follow these steps to create this custom field:

  1. Open the InLoox options: File -> InLoox Options
  2. Under General, click Custom Fields
  3. To create a new custom field, click New
