Smart Open

Smart Open

Smart Open feature enables the user to search a project in the project server. Besides, it contains all the regular capabilities offered by the default open dialog box.
 
The default open dialog box in the project server lacks the capability of searching projects by name. The effort of searching after the desired project, can cost the user both time and unnecessary effort.
 
 
 
 
 Compatable to:
 
  • MS-Project 2007
  • MS-Project 2010
  • MS-Project 2013
 
 
The Smart Open custom dialog box we provide enables you to search project by name, quickly and efficiently. Besides that, Smart Open feature offers additional capabilities, and is very intuitive and has an easy interface to work with.
 
 When your license is acquired, you can start using the Smart Open feature.
 
In order to start using the Smart Open feature, you will need to click the ‘Smart Open’ button in the MS Addons box 
 
 
 
 
 
Then, all the projects current found on the project server are loaded, and you get the Smart Open main window.
 
 
 
 
 
 
As you can see, there is a great similarity to the default Smart Open dialog box, and many capabilities are the same.
So, first of all, let us focus on the uniqueness of our product: the searching for required products, found in the project server, by name.
In order to search a project by its name, take a look at the search box:
 
 
 
 
As you can see, you can type a part of your project name, and the view would be updated immediately with the matching projects.
 
Besides projects in the project server itself, our Smart Open feature also enables you to search for directories.
By clicking the open folder button, a folder browser dialog would be opened .
 
                                    
 
                                                                        
 
Then, choose a directory to show on display .
 
 
 
 
 
 
The display shows the current projects and directories found in your chosen directory.
Notice that the button ‘Retrieve the list of all projects from project server’ is enabled, allowing you to show back all the projects from the project server.
In addition, the button ‘Clear’ is also enabled, allowing to you to retrieve all the initial projects loaded from the server, making the query act faster (Figure 16).
Also notice the combo box, which allows you to filter your display according to the file type selected .
 
 
 
 
 
When a file is selected on display, 2 things happened :
1) You can see the file name on the bottom of the screen
2) The Open button is enabled for use
 
 
 
 
 
You can open any project shown on display after marking it, by double click on it, or clicking the Open button.
In addition, you can do it in a write/read mode, or in a read only mode, by changing the proper combo box .
