UpStream Gets New Drag-and-Drop and Quick-Edit Features

UpStream 1.23.2 is out, together with updates for many UpStream extensions.

These updates make UpStream much easier to use.

Both the Calendar View and Project Timeline extensions now allow you to update project items using drag-and-drop. They also both support quick-editing of your project items.

Here’s an overview of 4 cool new features in the latest UpStream releases.

Feature #1. Drag-and-drop calendar items

My favorite feature in these releases is drag-and-drop support for the Calendar View extension. You can use this to quickly move items on the calendar to new dates. In the image below, you can drag-and-drop the “Create the new logo” task from Thursday 14th to Tuesday 19th.

Your Calendar will show both the Start and End dates for project items. So to make it easier to know which one you’re looking at, we added arrow icons. In the image below, the arrow pointing to the right shows a Start date. The arrow pointing to the left shows the End date for the same item.

Feature #2. Create and edit items inside the calendar

The next new Calendar feature allows you to create and edit project items more easily. You will now see a “Click to create” link inside any date:

After clicking on the “Click to create” link, you will be able to choose to create a Task, Bug or Milestone.
