vBulletin Project Tools Update in Development

Like the vBulletin Blog, the vBulletin Project Tools add-on will also be receiving an update in the near future. There has been great feedback on the features you want in the Project Tools, from project management improvements to additional integration with forum features.

This upcoming Project Tools release aims to implement some of the most popular feature requests we've received. Here's a list of some of the things you'll be getting:

Project Subscriptions
Users can now subscribe to individual issue types (bug, feature, task) within a project and get a digest with the latest changes, just like forum subscriptions.

Notification of Issue Assignment
If a user is assigned to an issue by someone else, he or she will be sent an email about the assignment.

Persistent Read Marking / New Post Indicators
A standard feature of the forums, the Project Tools now track what issues you've read and whether a project has new content. There are a bunch of features that follow from this:
  • Bold/unbold issue titles
  • "Go to new" links
  • Project icons that indicate new content
  • Issue type counters that indicate new content specifically to that type
  • Improved display of unread issues on the User CP
  • "Find New Issues" links
Issue Closing
A relatively simple feature, but issues that get out of hand can be closed. Like in the forum, this prevents replies except from those that can open the issue. It also locks the issue's metadata unless you can open the issue.

Improved Tracking of Private Issues/Replies
Previously, if someone replied privately to an issue, it wouldn't affect the last post information, thus making it very easy to miss the message. Now, private replies will change the last post time and reply counts (if you can see the private message). This way you won't miss anything.

This isn't a full list, as I'm sure you expect. Look for information on some of the new features in the vBulletin developers' blog.

Oh, and one more thing... Expect to see this Project Tools update here on vBulletin this month. Betas will be available to Project Tools license owners next month (July).

I'm wondering why no one posted here...
Good luck on updating it, though!
