Mediachase Plans Release of
IBN 4.7 which Includes Advanced Time Tracking, Microsoft Project Synchronization,
Improved List Management, and iGoogle-like Modular Views.
LOS ANGELES , California – May 12, 2008 –On
the heels of its new pricing and packaging, Mediachase is already planning the
release of its next version of the Instant Business Network, or IBN 4.7.
The most notable feature is a more advanced Time Tracking
feature which adds the ability to include a workflow process that allows project managers to review (approve/reject) timesheets submitted by team members before
the time is officially recorded.
Second, the IBN 4.7 has the ability to synchronize changes
from Microsoft Project to the IBN web portal, and vice versa. This feature is particularly helpful for employees
who travel often because they can use MS Project to make updates while on the
road where they have no internet access.
And once the user has internet access again, he or she can synchronize
changes back to their project web portal so that all team members can view the
most up-to-date information.
Third, the List Management interface has been overhauled to
give users much more flexibility. You
can edit forms, change the order of columns, show a history for each record,
store favorites, and relate multiple lists together.
Lastly, one of the most visually exciting features is the
ability to customize your work space view into iGoogle-like modules that can be
added, removed, or moved around and reordered.
This feature allows users to get a quick snapshot of the most important
and relevant information regarding their help desk system or projects.
More information will be released in the coming weeks describing
each of these features in more detail as Mediachase prepares for the pubic
release of IBN 4.7.
