We are excited to provide our customers with a place to interact with the beta version of the new Projectmates application. Please see the FAQ below for more information.
How Do I Access the New Projectmates Application? #
Access the new Projectmates application by going to a new address in your Projectmates instance. See the example below:
When Is the New Projectmates Application Going to Launch? #
We’ll be launching the beta test of the new Projectmates application around the 3rd quarter. Limited spots are available but we are still looking for partners to test this application.
Will There Be New Features and Modules in This New Application? #
There are plenty of new features and enhancements, however, no new major modules have been added. We really focused on the user experience, to standardize features and ensure the design is more user-friendly than the classic application.
If I Am a Beta Tester, Does My Entire Company Have to Be Involved? #
- You do not have to work in the new application but all data entered into the Classic Application will automatically be entered into the New Application.
- However, any automated emails from workflows will generate links that will take the user into the New Application for response.
Please be sure to let all of your project stakeholders know about the beta testing before they receive an email.
What Happens to All of Our Current and Historical Project Data? #
You can access your current and historical data using the new Projectmates application. The data will be transferred seamlessly so you do not need to archive and re-enter the data in the new application.
How Much Workflow Has Changed and Will I Need to Relearn Projectmates? #
The new software mimics the current version, so you’ll find that the workflow is essentially the same. However, we have added a ton of user experience enhancements for you.
Will You Offer Training on This New Version? #
While this new application is designed to have a cleaner, more intuitive layout we will be offering online training, webinars, short videos, and a new knowledge base. Since the application is designed to be much more user-friendly and the processes are the same, it will be more natural for you to use so you may find you don’t need much training. Additionally, this site provides many step-by-step help articles and short help videos for you.
