The 2019.1 Beta 4 release contains the following enhancements:

Export Options for the Role View in the Resource Planner

You can now select which levels of information to export from the Resource Planner in the Role view.

You can export any of the following:

  • Roles only
  • Roles and Projects
  • Roles, Projects, and Users

Prior to this enhancement, all levels of information were exported in the Role view. These options have been introduced to the Project and User views in a previous release.

For information about exporting information from the Resource Planner, see "Exporting Information from the Resource Planner."

Data Formatting Options for Exporting the Resource Planner 

You can now select how you want to display information in the Excel file when exported from the Resource Planner.

You can display the availability and allocation of information exported from the Resource Planner in the following ways: 

  • Ungrouped by the name of the objects it belongs to. In this case, the names of the objects it belongs to are displayed on each row of data. (this is the default option) 
  • Grouped by the name of the objects it belongs to. In this case, the information in the exported file appears as it is displayed in Workfront. 

Prior to this enhancement, the information in the exported file appeared as it appears in Workfront. 

For information about exporting information from the Resource Planner, see "Exporting Information from the Resource Planner."

Persistent Scheduling Timeline

Scheduling timelines now keep the timeframe and the filter when you refresh the timeline or navigate away from the page.

Prior to this enhancement, the scheduling timelines returned to the default timeframe and filter when you refreshed or navigated away from the page.

This enhancement is available in the following areas:

  • Scheduling tab in the People area
  • Team Working On tab
  • Scheduling subtab on the Staffing tab of a Project

Display Lists in Full Screen

When a list of projects or tasks is larger than the size of your screen, the list now automatically displays in the entire browser window as you scroll. This increases the amount of information you see at one time and allows you to make lists easier to manage.

You can display the following lists in full screen:

  • A list of projects in the following tabs and subtabs:
    • Projects I'm On
    • Projects I Own
    • All Projects
    • Projects tab in a Portfolio
    • Projects tab in a Program
  • A list of tasks in the following tabs:
    • Tasks tab in a Project
    • Subtasks tab in a Task

For information about displaying objects in lists, see "Viewing Items in a List."

New Lists in Additional Areas 

We have enhanced the performance and improved the look and feel of the project and task lists in the following areas: 

  • Portfolio and Programs tabs in the Projects area 
  • Subtasks tab at the task level 

Prior to this enhancement, the new lists were available only in the following areas: 

  • Projects tab in the Projects area 
  • Tasks tab at the Project level

For information about displaying objects in lists, see "Viewing Items in a List." 

View Task Information in the Project List Gantt Chart in a Program or Portfolio

You can now view information about a project's tasks in the Project List Gantt Chart within a Program or Portfolio. 

Previously, you could view information about tasks only in the Project List Gantt Chart on the Projects tab.

For more information, see "Viewing Information in the Gantt Chart."

Access the Task List Gantt Chart on Templates

You can now access the Task List Gantt Chart within a project template.

Previously, you could not view the Gantt chart on the task list within a template.

For more information, see "Getting Started with the Gantt Chart."

Renamed the Project View on the Gantt Chart

We renamed the "Project" view option on the Gantt chart to "Fit All." The view option still works as it did previously. The new name is meant to be more descriptive as to what you view when the option is selected.

For more information, see "Viewing Information in the Gantt Chart."
