News on TILOS Version 8

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

more subprojets

 

  • 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:

new-grid-features

  • 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.

Linear project GmbH appoints Projet Linéaire as new distributor for France

Linear Project is happy to announce a new partner in the global network. The scope of both companies (planning and controlling linear projects) fits ideally, which is also expressed in the name of both companies. Projet Linéaire is providing software and service for infrastructure project in French spoken territories.

The managing director and founder, Fabien Gaboriau, has much experience in planning linear projects. He was always a fan of TILOS – that he was using in his consulting projects. We found the partner with most experience in TILOS software and in the market. It will push the TILOS service in France to a higher level of quality and improves services around the product.

Hubert Geier: “We found an ideal partner in France, with excelent skills in linear scheduling, the TILOS software and having good relations to the french construction industry. We were very concerned about the development of TILOS in France seeing 2 partners disappearing from the market (Inxeoz and A3I). A close relationship between Linear project and Projet Linéaire will lead to a long lasting successful cooperation as both work strictly in the area of linear scheduling and bringing TILOS to a success in France.”
