CS Odessa Updates ConceptDraw PROJECT v10

CS Odessa announces improvements for ConceptDraw PROJECT v10 that help project managers plan, maintain, and communicate all aspects of multiple projects on Windows and macOS. The update for ConceptDraw PROJECT brings it to version 10.0.1 and is featured with the set of improvements and fixes. ConceptDraw PROJECT v10.0.1 has been enhanced with Improved recurring task usability that helps easily schedule project tasks that occur on a regular basis.



“Recurring tasks can be rather helpful when scheduling project tasks that should happen regularly. No one will be happy to list all the tasks for the monthly procedure in a project that will take an annum to complete. Instead, the project manager can establish the recurrence, and PROJECT automatically creates all repeated tasks.” – says Robert Mitchell, 11 years experienced IT Project Manager who has used ConceptDraw PROJECT since 2015.


Mac users who are working with larger projects will appreciate the enhanced scroll performance, which is important when dealing with large task lists. In addition, those of them with a passion for Apple technologies will like the improved representation of the application in Dark Mode. Also, the update includes a pack of quality issues fixes.

Sixbytes Offers a Way to Improve Productivity with New App

Sixbytes announces the launch of HibiDo, a new To-do list & Notes app that helps synchronize across all devices. Developed to help improve your productivity, HibiDo offers a new way to schedule your personal and work activities in the most efficient manner. Apart from scheduling personal activities and projects, one can also collaborate with their team to get tasks completed.



Felix Yew, the developer of the app emphasized that he came up with the idea for the app after observing a number of problems her sister was going through while scheduling her tasks. “I always believed that technology can play a strong role in helping everyone improve themselves, every day. I remember observing my sister struggling to schedule her tasks. She would use different platforms to schedule her project list, reminders, personal activities and many others. It was so confusing. I thought, there must be a better way of bringing all these together into one. That is what HibiDo does. Whether you want to schedule an agenda, make memos, create a to-do lists, share shopping lists, collaborate in a team, or even taking note and journal, HibiDo is always here to help you get stuff done and keep life on track”


Main features:

  • Enabling you to set task and note taking with a single app instead of using two separate apps to manage both of your task and note

  • Auto Sync – Syncs seamlessly between multiple devices; All tasks and notes are stored on cloud and accessible across multiple platforms
  • Simple and elegant design – To ensure that there is improved visibility while you schedule your projects
  • Reminder – Get reminded anytime, anywhere; It helps you to remember deadlines with reminders and due dates when creating a new task


There is no doubt that the company has gone a long way in resolving a number of productivity challenges that we face.

Merlin Project 6 – Project Management Software

Almost 15 years after the first version of Merlin, the sixth generation of the popular project management software for Mac and iOS was released by Project Wizards. Merlin is intuitive, easy-to-use and offers a variety of options to help you plan, take control, collaborate and complete your project successfully. The new version comes with many graphical improvements.



The so called Dark Mode is a helpful setting when it comes to working in the evening or in dark surroundings – a fate that affects many project managers. With the new version 6.0 Merlin Project supports the Dark Mode on Macs and iOS. In contrast, Merlin Project 6 also offers a Light Mode with a bright inspector for a consistently light appearance. There are four ways to combine the different displays: For example, the contents of a project can appear bright in Dark Mode.


Merlin Project 6 now supports the accent colors on the Mac, which is particularly impressive in the new start dialog. This provides direct access to all templates and previous documents. A new, practical view menu makes it easier to open the numerous views of a project.


On the iPad, Merlin Project 6 can now handle multiple windows – the so-called scenes. It is even supported to open one project in several scenes simultaneously.





Project Planning Pro Brings an AI-Enabled Chatbot to Their iOS App

Independent development team i2e Consulting today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Project Planning Pro 3.4.3, an important update to their project and task management app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. The app allows anyone to quickly create a new project plan by entering tasks, their durations, and their start dates. Users can use simple touch-based gestures to edit and update tasks via the app’s interactive Gantt chart.



Project Planning Pro helps teams increase productivity by allowing them to manage their tasks, communicate and collaborate, and avoid missing their all-important project deadlines. Anyone can make use of the award-nominated app to plan and manage any size or type of project, directly from their iPhone or iPad. The app’s flexibility allows users to manage apps anywhere, in or out of the office.


iVA allows iOS device users to ask the chatbot for information about their projects, helping them to gain insight into the projects, allowing them to make better informed decisions. Currently, the feature is in a beta “iOS-only” version, but the company has plans to roll the chatbot out to other platforms in the near future.


Users can ask iVA questions about the overall project, specific tasks, or about specific resources:
* Are any projects due this week?
* What is the total cost of the project?
* Which projects are delayed?
* What are the milestones in the project?
* Which tasks should I be working on today?
* Show me all delayed tasks.
* Who is assigned to a particular task?
* List all delayed tasks.
* And many others


By answering important questions about projects and their associated tasks and resources, iVA makes project management easier. iVA helps users decide the best way to manage their work, providing the critical information managers need to make the right project management decisions.


Currently, iVA only offers information from existing projects. However, iVA will soon be able to create new projects, streamlining project management, something no other project management app currently has the capability to do.


Project Planning Pro still offers the ability to quickly and easily share project information with customers and coworkers in PDF, CSV, or XML file format, offering efficient compatibility with nearly any project management application available for both desktop and mobile devices. i2e Consulting also offers Mac, Windows, and Android versions of the app, making it easy to share projects with across various device platforms.
