News: New Features in October 2020
October 2020

We just released some long-awaited features for productive teams in September, and now you can already look forward to more updates in awork. We don’t want to get ahead of ourselves, so you can find all the details about the new features in this blog post.

Manage your different teams in awork

From now on, there is a brand new section in the awork menu: Teams. Here you can assign single or multiple teams to each user.

This allows you to group projects and users of your workspace and limit their visibility to other teams. This makes the option possible that teams can only see their own projects, but not other teams’ projects.

For example, imagine you’re working on a new project for a large company that only a few employees are privy to for now. In this case, you can use the Teams feature. Only the project team can access the respective projects, tasks, and information.

In addition to users, you can also assign entire projects to specific teams. If you want to add new users to your workspace, you can already select a team at this point.

Note: As long as you haven’t created any teams, you won’t see any options in your workspace to assign users or projects to teams or to filter by them.

Use the helpful filter functions in awork

By dividing your workspace into teams, you now have new filtering options. For example, you can view the workload of individual colleagues in team planning or evaluate recorded times by the given team.

You can find the new function in the menu under Settings. Here you can also see the projects on which you are assigned to. In rights management, you can assign rights based on the team level.

Since there are so many cool use cases for the new Teams feature, we’ve put together all the info you need into a webinar on October 13, 2020 at 5pm. Watch the webinar recording to learn how to create Teams and how to use it. Click here to watch the recording!

Create dependencies between tasks even easier

Until now, you could only create dependencies between tasks in the Timeline. We’ve simplified this workflow significantly. Now you can also create dependencies in the task details. Using the three-dot icon, you can select one or more tasks that need to be completed first.

If you have created one or more dependencies, they will be displayed directly in the task details.

If you click on “Dependent on“, you can create a new dependency.

Faster overview of the capacities in the team

Do you want to know at a glance how many hours of a colleague are already occupied? This is now possible in team planning. When you hover over the capacity chart, you’ll see directly how many hours each person has been scheduled.

Always keep track of all capacities of your team.

There is a new filter in the task views

Last but not least, we have a small innovation in the task view. There you now can filter your tasks by individual status. Under Task Filter, you will find the new option Contains under Status. Until now, you could only choose between our predefined statuses. We have changed that now.
