Possibility to schedule any meeting in Projectplace as online

This means that a link to start and join the online meeting will be included in the email invitation to a meeting if the organiser decides to hold it online. The feature to schedule online meetings has been a top request from our user base and we hope that you will like it. You can either book an online meeting from the online meeting menu at the top navigation bar or select it as an option when booking a meeting in Meetings.

You can schedule a future online meeting from the online meeting menu...

New cross-project search function  for all. 

We are releasing the updated search for all.  The new search is always there in the navigation bar at the top of the window and lets you search for cards, activities, comments, documents etc across several tools and all your projects. If you have had the new search already, the interface has been updated.

Real-time updates in Boards

Real-time updates mean that if one of your colleagues updates something on a board (name of a card or adds a card) this will update for you also at the same time if you have the same board open on your screen. The big advantage is that you can trust that what you see on your screen is the latest information.

    How could I get my “drag and drop – function” back. Now it is hard to manage the PP-webb site, moving documents from and to PP, compared to earlier versions, when the plug-in software was working.

      You can use drag and drop to Projectplace through the web browser via add files. The plug-in works the same way in new documents as in the old version. If you have problems getting this working, please contact support@projectplace.com for troubleshooting on your specific computer/set-up.

    Geachte heer/mevrouw,

    Graag zou ik geen mail meer ontvangen voor projectplace, daar wij geen deel meer uitmaken van het project.

    Alvast bedankt voor de medewerking.

    Met vriendelijke groet,

    Dennis Vondermans

      Hi Dennis,

      There should be a link to unsubscribe in any newsletter you get from us. I have done this manually and hope that this will also do the trick.

      Best regards,
      Karolina

    The drag and drop do not work anymore. I have added the webb page “projectplace.com” in the compatibility setup in the webb page, because I am using Explorer 11.
    Add files works, as you say. But it is very time consuming. Drag and drop helped a lot earlier, to make this webb page functional.

      Hi Sven,

      The Drag and drop will not work in compatibility mode so that might be your problem. I have added a video of what the drag and drop looks like for me in IE11. You can either drag straight in to the list of files or into the “add file” window. Versions should work as well – note how my file version is updated from 1.5 to 1.6 for example.
