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.
You can also click on any item in the Calendar to get more information. This image shows the extra information you’ll see, plus an “Edit” button.
Feature #3. Drag-and-drop to change timeline items
Using the Project Timeline extension, you can click on the Start and End dates of any item. You can drag the toolbar items to change the date.
Feature #4. Edit items from the Project Timeline
As with the Calendar, the Project Timeline extension also allows you to click on items to edit them in the timeline
