proimporter - Release 19.12 - Improved usability, new features, new quickfixes and bugfixes.




Release 19.12

Beside the optical improvements in dropdown menus and the general overview up to the technical manual, with the release 19.12 we have made general improvements in many areas.

Improved visibility of dropdown cells

Until now, the visual surface of the proimporter was the same for all cells. So it could not be distinguished which cells are editable and which are not. Only in the edit mode of a single cell it was obvious that a value can be selected from a dropdown menu.
With release 19.12, all non-editable fields will be marked grey and italicized. This allows you to see at a glance in which cells values can be adjusted.

Here you can see the difference between editable and non-editable fields.


Unique ID's

By shortening ID's for roles through the implemented Quickfix function, an ID can be created that is not unique. This led in Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM so far to the fact that these data were not transferred to Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM, because the tool does not allow duplications in the ID's simply.
The proimporter can now recognize and validate possible Unique constraint violations with its Quickfix function. Thus you avoid possible inconsistencies and keep your Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM database clean.


Improved import for calendars without workweek

Resources and calendars are essentially the backbone of any schedule. Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM uses workweek calendars to create reliable forecasts as a project planning tool. If the calendar in the XER-file does not contain a workweek, the XER-file is not imported into Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM, because in Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM calendars cannot exist without a workweek.
In the future, the proimporter will recognize whether the calendars to be imported contain a workweek. If this is not the case, the validation results in an error message. A standard workweek is then assigned to the calendar.


Technical manual

With release 19.12 we have made some additions to the technical manual. In addition, the manual is now available in English.


Resource Panel

Until now, the calendars of individual resources were not displayed in the overview of resources. With release 19.12 this changes and the calendars of the resources are now visible.

The "Calendar" column has been added to the resource panel.


The following bugfixes are included in version 19.12:

Previously, under certain circumstances, there was an incorrect status message from the proimporter after loading data from Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM. This behavior has been corrected.
