It helps MyCollab become easier to use, and more efficient for mid and large size of projects.

UI Improvements & Updates
- Display the number of items in every list, and quick review
Per customers’ feedbacks, now MyCollab project displays the tooltip for all project item links which help users can do a quick review without going to the detail item page. In addition, we show the number of items in the widget title to help users can grab the amount of items to get their attention quickly.
- Customize project features
We try to keep MyCollab project fit to various kinds of projects, from one man project to a large distributed team. To make our vision happen, we provide the large set of features, and allow users customize project features meet to their needs. In the latest version in August, our goal is partially met, you can customize the project features at your end. If you are the project admin, you can go to Project Settings and choose what features are suitable to your team.
- Projects List Widget looks more informative
We revised the Projects widget looks more beautiful and contain more information to users. You can grab the basic information of projects, what are the latest changes, how many phases, tasks or issues in one project.
- Easier to follow a project item
In the previous version of MyCollab project, we did not display the followers of an item in the visual way. Users must to manage followers in the separate tab, and it is not clear how many followers on the project item. Per feedbacks, we revise the preview item page, and we have a quick review panel which contains summary fields of an item include the followers.
Knowledge sharing with Pages
Document the project knowledge is the highest rate of feature requests from our customers. We listen, however there are some technical architect conflicts and other reasons make us defer this feature until this release. We are sorry! Now, you can manage project knowledge easily with MyCollab Pages!
- Create a new page with the rich text editor, you are also could add attachments to a page.
- Categorize pages with folder. You can create unlimited groups to organize pages into the appropriate group.
- Several quick sort criteria will help you find page or group quicker.
We plan to add more features to Project Page in future. Several items are in the line of assignments:
- Page version
- Compare page versions and restore the current page to previous version
- Search page by text
- Support page followers, send mail to followers if there is any change in page
Users can archive project if they no longer use it
MyCollab project could help an organization manage as many projects as possible. If you are no longer to use some project, and instead of deleting it permanently out of the system, you can archive it and later you can activate it if the project is resumed. This feature is useful when you have several projects which are not continuous developed by the team or the organization may keep all projects in the system to query information for reporting and statistical data purpose.
Note: The number of archive and active projects is the limited constraints of your billing plan. If you have 20 projects in your billing plan that means the total of active and archive projects you can have is 20, you need to delete projects or upgrade your plan if you want to have more than 20 projects in your account.
We have been working hard always to give customers the best product. Our product is not a perfect one. Besides the new features are added, several minor issues are addressed and fixed.
