Transparency in Project Central
Who: Project Managers
What: Project central changes the true data in the database when a project is displayed and converts it to something that make more sense to a user. Today the user has no visibile indicators to identify the format change. Beginning with version 10 PowerSteering will treat any displayed value that is different from the persisted information as "changed" displaying the standard black triangle on all such cells.
The "Save" button will be enabled in this situation and a warning message displayed as follows:
"Project central has detected some inconsistencies with the project plan and has repaired the project as shown by the changes displayed here. Press save to make these changes permanent."
The project manager can confirm the changes and save them to the database.
Why: Greater transparency and more consistent performance.
