Dear Readers,

We are proud that we are once more recognized by Gartner as a "Visionary" in the Magic Quadrant for Program and Portfolio Management. As ONEPOINT is used increasingly also in larger organizations, we were also present at the Gartner PPM Summit in London in order to get additional feedback on our roadmap.

Talking about feedback, we are happy that we can announce a new strategic partnership with another leading PPM consultancy firm in CER: Roland Gareis Consuling (RGC). Roland Gareis is often called the "pope of project management" in Austria and we are looking forward to get great feedback and input from him.

We also gathered a lot of feedback about our upcoming next generation agile planning & controlling component at Atlassian Summit, PM Welt in Munich and PMI EMEA Conference in Dublin - and it was tremendously positive. Read on to get a first preview of our Kanban-style sprint board which will take your sprint planning to a whole new level.

Finally, you should definitely check out a new blog that was launched a couple of months ago: "PROJEKTErfolg" (currently in German only). It provides a great overview of project management tools and a nice glossary of PM terms.

Best Regards,

Gerald Aquila, Founder & CEO

ONEPOINT Projects 18 Update 1

ONEPOINT Projects 18 Update 1 is our latest production update and delivered several new features. Notable changes include:

  • Users can now add comments when using “Quick Time Tracking”
  • New default reports are now available e.g. Project List, To-Dos, Activity List, and Top Risks
  • New report type "Change Requests" is included in our report wizard. All fields of change requests can now be queried via this report type
  • New functionality for the Jira Connector Option is implemented allowing to exclude Jira issue types from the synchronization
  • The Confluence Connector Option is now available on our Cloud as well

If you have not already upgraded to Update 1, we recommend you to do so, as it also comes with many stability and usability improvements.

Preview ONEPOINT Projects 19

We are currently working very hard on new features and improvements for ONEPOINT Projects 19 which will offer a second generation integrated agile component. The new agile component will be an integral part of the Planning & Controlling Option.

Multi-sprint planning with the new sprint board

With the new sprint board, you will be able to do multi-sprint planning. It will then be possible to roughly structure sprints in advance. The sprint board will additionally provide a real-time, velocity-based utilization information by adjusting the background color of sprint columns accordingly. The backlog shows all stories which are not yet assigned to a sprint. Of course, the sprint board is drag & drop enabled. We hope you will like it as much as we do. :-)

New Strategic Partnership

We are happy about the new cooperation with Roland Gareis Consulting GmbH, innovator in project, program and change management. RGC's national and international leadership is reflected not only in the training and consulting of project-oriented organizations but also in publications and in the annual event HAPPYPROJECTS. ONEPOINT is supporting RGC in securing the business value of their customers.
