New Layout Change:
YZPM6 has incorporated a more user friendly design and layout. This includes new icons throughout the entire site. Some of these changes can be seen in the following sections: Adding & updating clients, Users, Groups, Tasks, Search and the Attachment page.

Calendar:
All users can now input a memo into any particular day of the Calendar. When the user logs in to YZPM6 on any particular day there would be a memo. The memo will appear on the user's memo page. This allows the user to separate setup schedules and reminders independent of any particular task. Directors would be allowed to view all users calendar memos while managers can view the Calendar memos of the users belonging to the same group as the manager.

Task Dependency:
Directors and managers will be able to control the flow of a particular task. When a task is created, the users can specify a list of users to whom the task gets automatically forwarded. When a task is completed by one user, the task gets automatically forwarded to the next user on the Dependency List and a message notification is sent out to notify the next user that he/she has a new task. The task keeps getting forwarded to the next until the last person on the list completes the task.

Distribution List:
YZPM6 now allows automatic email notifications to groups designated in the Distribution List for a particular task. Whenever that task is completed or updated, all users in the group selected from the Distribution List will get an email notification. That email notification can also contain any particular task information such as task name, description, deadline, etc. These fields are specified in the administrator preferences.

User/Group Drop Down Selections:
There is a more user friendly way to select a user without having to scroll down an entire list of users and their groups which they are assigned to. In the new version, when assigning a new task, updating a task or searching a task, users can first select the group that the new task will be assigned to first. Then the users belonging to that group will automatically be listed. The user could then be assigned out of that list. This speeds up the time in selecting a users especially where the list of users may be very long.

Direct URL Task Link:
All email messages sent out referencing to any particular task now have a direct link where users can click on to see that task. Users will have to login to YZPM6 first if not already logged in; however once logged in they go directly to view that particular task.

Project Due date:
All projects can now be assigned a project due date. The project due date can be updated as often as needed to reflect changes on a project status.

Remember Me:
When ZYPM6 users login, they can still access the software without having to login again once they close their browser. Their login information is saved on the browser's cache settings. Once the user logs off they will have to log back in.

MSSQL 2000 Compatible:
YZPM6 is now compatible with MSSQL 2000 server along with its previous list of compatible databases which includes but not limited to: MySQL, Access, MSSQL7, Sybase and Oracle.

Extra Fields:
YPZM6 now has incorporated 5 extra fields in which clients can label and use for any purpose. This allows customizable fields pertaining to the client's needs. The client can rename each field and choose it anyway they want. They could also use any fields to do customizable search.
