OmniPlan for iOS 4.4

March 29, 2022

Requires iOS/iPadOS 14.1

OmniPlan 4.4

OmniPlan 4.4 improves OmniPlan’s leveling and scheduling logic on all platforms, and introduces localizations on iPad and iPhone. OmniPlan 4 is now localized in English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, and Spanish on all platforms.

  • Localizations — OmniPlan is now localized in English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, and Spanish.
  • Leveling — Leveling now supports assigning a resource group that contains only equipment resources with 0% efficiency (previously this would trigger a “no dependency chain available” violation). This is useful for automatically assigning an available conference room from a resource group of conference rooms, for example.
  • Omni Automation — Omni Automation improvements. For more detail, see the Omni Automation Release Notes (available in the Automation API Reference via the Automation menu in the toolbar).
  • Leveling — Improved leveling logic related to resource availability.
  • Leveling — A warning is now presented when leveling could cause a hammock task to stretch endlessly due to an assigned resource that is also in the dependency chain for the hammock’s end date.
  • Omni Account — Closing an Omni Account can now be initiated via the Omni Account settings.
  • Leveling — Leveling no longer unassigns resources assigned to manually scheduled tasks.
  • Leveling — Fixed a bug that could cause resource start dates to interfere with accurately scheduling tasks set to “Task progress requires: Any of the assigned resources.”
  • Leveling — Leveling a “Adjust Assigned Amounts” task that is assigned to multiple resources no longer over assigns units to resources with less than 100% unit availability (previously, OmniPlan split the assigned amount evenly across all assigned resources, regardless of individual resource availability).
  • Leveling — Resource leveling no longer gives up on scheduling long sequences of as-late-as-possible tasks that end up determining the project end date in projects scheduled from a fixed start.
  • Leveling — Fixed a bug that could cause leveling to repeatedly split and merge partially completed tasks.
  • Leveling — ALAP milestones in a forward project now level correctly.
  • Multitasking — Changes to sidebar visibility no longer affect all open documents.
  • Outline View — Task group expansion state is now restored in Outline View.
  • Scheduling — One hour tasks are now scheduled as expected over standard to daylight savings time changeover.
  • Scheduling — Hammock task now round to whole days as expected in projects set to daily scheduling granularity.
  • Stability — Fixed a crash that could occur when creating a hammock task between ASAP & ALAP tasks in some project schedules.
  • Violations — A violation is now presented when a resource is over-allocated due to simultaneous manually scheduled tasks.

OmniPlan for iOS 4.3

February 2, 2022

Requires iOS/iPadOS 14.1

OmniPlan 4.3 introduces Omni Automation actions for Shortcuts and fixes some issues with renewing an active subscription. This update requires iOS 14 or later.

  • Omni Automation — Support for triggering Omni Automation scripts and plug-ins from Shortcuts, using the new Omni Automation Script and Omni Automation Plug-In actions, has been added.
  • Documentation — In-app documentation has been updated to reflect recent changes.
  • Inspector — Task scheduling options are now labeled correctly in the Task Scheduling Inspector.
  • Leveling — Partially completed tasks are now handled properly by auto leveling.
  • Multitasking — On-screen keyboard now displays more consistently when multiple documents are open.
  • Subscription Renewal — Fixed some issues which could cause the app to lose track of an active subscription, requiring a fresh Omni Account sign-in each time the subscription renewed. Signing in to an Omni Account should now keep you signed in until you explicitly sign out, remove the app, or change your account password.
  • Stability — Fixed a crash that could occur when editing in Outline View.
