OpenProject 8.2 includes several improvements, such as a modernized calendar as well as many usability improvements.
Modernized calendar view
The existing calendar view has been replaced with a new, modern calendar view with OpenProject 8.2. This affects all existing calendar views (e.g. in a project, on the My page).
OpenProject 8.2 includes many usability improvements which make OpenProject easier and smoother to use. Some examples of usability improvements include:
- Create a version from the roadmap and backlog page.
- Change a work package parent directly from the breadcrumb.
- A “Related to” relation is created automatically when copying a work package.
- The OpenProject search searches the current project and subprojects by default.
Read-only mode for work packages (Enterprise Edition / Cloud Edition)
Users of the Enterprise Edition and Cloud Edition can define read-only work package statuses. When you change a work package’s status to a read-only status, the work package can no longer be modified. This allows you to avoid users to e.g. make changes to a work package once it has been approved.
Embedded work packages with other relation types (Enterprise Edition / Cloud Edition)
With OpenProject 8.2 the embed work package capability introduced with OpenProject 8 is extended to be used with other relation types besides hierarchical relationships.
