KeyedIn’s Latest Release Provides 10x Increase in Gantt Chart Performance

The newest release of KeyedIn Projects simplifies the management of large projects, handling project plans with 2,000+ tasks with exceptional performance. KeyedIn’s innovative project and portfolio management solution gives project leaders information at their fingertips, enabling more strategic decision-making and providing project and resource agility for overall better performance. In addition to performance improvements, KeyedIn Projects 6.4 introduces new capabilities to simplify enterprise task planning, including the ability to capture, edit and paste all or portions of other projects or use them as templates for new projects; it offers revamped Gantt chart capabilities; and the release adds new flexibility to resource management.

Here are a few of the highlights from KeyedIn’s latest release.

Task Planning

The task planning Gantt functionality has been completely redeveloped using the latest client-side technology for a faster, more fluid experience and a fresh interface to give project managers the ability and confidence to manage large projects at a task level.

Users can now choose to automatically update the Parent Task percent complete rather than having to manually calculate it.

Resource Availability

The resource availability search has been simplified, allowing users to more efficiently find the right resource at the right time for the task at hand. A brand new search function allows users to quickly find filtered tasks and resources by task types with a bulk edit feature enabling users to update certain attributes simultaneously.

Additional improvements have been made to the resource plan screen to improve the visualization of resource utilization, highlighting the expected amount of time resources will spend working on chargeable or productive projects. You can manipulate the resource plan screen to give you a visual indication based on which time type specific users prefer.

Exporting to MS Project

Process changes to the export of data to MS Project allow project managers to easily share data for outside users or stakeholders.


These features and enhancements in v6.4 of KeyedIn Projects were based on user feedback and testing to solve pains and bring benefits for project managers and the resources with tasks on projects. Stakeholders and project managers gain an enhanced user interface and will find it easier and faster to gain an understanding of the status of their projects and the availability and utilization of their resources.
