As the core of TILOS 8 was completely overworked and we have added some nice features, there are of course some changes in the User Interface. However, we have succeeded in keeping the look-and-feel of TILOS 7 – so it will be easy just to start with TILOS 8.
I ‘d like to present some small, but nice changes, that are making life easier with TILOS 8:
More than one Subproject visible in a time-distance-cell
It is now possible to display more than one Subproject container in a time-distance cell. This may help
- visualizing parallel tracks
- showing different stages of a project
- displaying a new way of baselining
Overworked table grid interface
The behavior of the table data grid was overworked completely. Now the table grids have a more common look-and-feel and new fuctions:
- Tab key will jump to the next field in the row
- With the cursor keys it is possible to navigate in the rows and columns
- Pulldown values can be selected by typing keys
- In general the whole table grid can be used without mouse, only with the keyboard
- By clicking the column header the rows get sorted by the values in this column, even in the gantt chart panel
Copy an Paste
Copy and Paste has beeon overworked completely: A new communication technology transports information even to different program sessions: It will be possible to copy objects like tasks or profiles, even whole subprojects, to a second TILOS session (e.g. a different file).
Scrolling while linking tasks
Finally If you want to draw a link to a successor task, that is currently not visible on the screen, TILOS 8 now scrolls horizontally and vertically, following your mouse move.
