We are going to remove Targetprocess v.2 in Jan 2016

Targetprocess logo v2-v3

Targetprocess v.2 was released in 2006. 10 years is a huge timeframe in SaaS world, so we are going to completely remove Targetprocess v.2 soon.

Most of you already work with v.3 user interface and you’ll hardly notice any difference. This post answers some questions that may trouble you. Please, don’t hesitate to ask more in comments.

Why do you want to remove v.2?

Basically, it affects our development speed. We have to run all old tests, try to not break old things and fix if they break. Less and less people use v.2, so we think we reached a safe moment to cut it completely.

There are some features I use in v.2, since there are no good replacements in v.3

We are going to match almost all features. At least it will be possible to do almost all the things in v.3 as well, like Split, Merge, etc. This is a prerequisite to remove v.2 for us. You can mention any particular case in comments and we will take it into consideration.

I love v.2 and we have On-Site installation

It means you will not be able to upgrade to newer version from Jan 2016. Most likely nothing changes for you, since we didn’t improve v.2 last two years.

I love v.2 and we have On-Demand account

In this case we will move your account to a separate server and will not upgrade this account anymore.

If you have more questions, please feel free to ask them.

Share Timeline

We’ve just released a new version of our Share Board Mashup, which can now also share views in Timeline mode. Take advantage of it by sharing your global portfolio plans and roadmaps with your stakeholders, giving external departments transparency about your release train and iterations schedule or sharing any other timeline view outside of Targetprocess.

The functionality is pretty similar to the previous version. The “Share Timeline” button appears on any Timeline View, within the actions menu.


Just click the button to get your hashed public link for this view.

The shared Timeline View is based on the configuration from your views setup. It also takes visual encoding rules and card customization into account. The shown data is everything from your local time range, that has been selected with the navigator at the bottom of your Timeline View.


You can read more about the Share View functionality in our Guide. Let us know what you think about the new Share Timeline feature.

If you’re interested in sharing Lists aswell, feel free to put your vote on Share List Request in our User Voice.

Calculated Custom Fields

Requires Targetprocess 3.6.6+

It is possible to create your own metrics with a Custom Field based on a specified Formula. To do so, create a Custom Field with a Calculated Field Type and specify Calculation Formula. The Calculated Custom Field (CCF) can have one of the following type: Number, Text, Date and Check Box. This can be determined as a result of the Calculation Formula.
The CCF can also have Units of Measurements, which would be shown near the calculated value. You can set it up if the result of the Calculation Formula is Number.


You can operate with CCFs the same as with simple Custom Fields. Within Entity details, the CCFs are shown in the Custom Fields section.
You can select them in the Customize Cards section to see them on the View. You can use them in Filters as well.



In the Calculation Formula you can use Fields of Entity and Custom Fields of Entity (except Calculated) and Fields of Parent Entities (for example, Feature.Effort for User Story CCF). MVF does not allow the use of Entity collections in the formula.
To learn what properties you can use, check this reference.


If you need to use the Drop Down field value in the formula then use IIF operator for that. It takes 3 parameters. If the condition (the first parameter) is matched, then the result is the second parameter, otherwise the third parameter would be returned as a result. You also can use IIF operator as the parameter of another IIF operator.


The Entity view would be shown like this:


Dates in Formula

If you need to increase/decrease the Entity date field, you should use AddDays method.


You can also use DateTime.Now when you need the current date in calculations.



More examples

You can set up a formula which returns True or False. In this case a Calculated Custom Field of the CheckBox type will be created.


Text is another possible type.
