OmniPlan for iOS 4.4

March 29, 2022

Requires iOS 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.
