Taskfeed 3 - Release Notes

Taskfeed v3 is now available. Upgrade via the AppExchange or contact support@taskfeedapp.com for assistance.

Major new features and improvement

This release focussed on a number of small enhancements and bug fixes. There was however one new big feature which is zoom within the plan view.


The Taskfeed Plan view is great for scheduling Tasks. This has now been improved by adding 'zoom'. You can now view the plan in 5 different levels of zoom. This is great for running project of varying duration.

Enhancement for time tracking

We found there was often confusion when logging time. It wasn't clear which unit identified where supported and there was not very good validation or feedback to the user when time was being logged. In the new version there a number of enhancements to provide more feedback when logging time and to ensure that what you enter for time spent is properly translated into a duration.

Other Improvements and Bug fixes
