Press release from: Stand By Soft

RationalPlan 5.5 brings a major change to its way of managing projects. Although the product is best suited for the traditional waterfall project management methodology it can also be used for agile projects. Further more, starting with current version, it improves the support for agile project management with the newly added Kanban board.

RationalPlan is a project management software suite that is available either as stand alone products or as a cloud service. It is used by individuals and by companies that need a solution to manage their work in an efficient way.
Features added for RationalPlan 5.5

Added Kanban view for agile project management
Added color settings for tasks
Added Info column within Gantt view
Added roll over icon in Portfolio view
Improved support for importing MS Project .xml files
Added "Go to Start" action for tasks on the contextual menu of Gantt grid

Current version put the accent on improving the web interface. The biggest change was the addition of a Kanban board for those users that are working with an agile project management methodology. The basic working cycle for managing tasks is pretty straightforward. New tasks are added in the To Do list. Once you start working on a task, drag it over the In progress list. When it gets completed just move it to Done list.

Gantt chart also got new visual features. Users can now set different colors for task bars depending on the structure type (leaf, phase, project or milestone), completion, status (critical, late, having a deadline) etc. Also an Info column was added to the Gantt table. It offers rapid insights for every task: if it is completed, or has a date constraint, deadline, notes or comments. Within the contextual menu a "Go to Start" action offers a quick way to focus the chart on the start date of the selected task.

A roll over icon was added to Portfolio table. This way users have a fast access to a contextual menu. With the "Open project in Gantt" action they can focus on a given project by directly opening it within the Gantt view.

Current version also comes with improved support for importing Microsoft Project files.
