ScheduleReader Focuses on Improving Work With Assignments in New Version

We are pleased to announce the latest release of ScheduleReader, the leading standalone viewer for existing project plans created and exported in the XER, XML, and XLS file format from the Oracle® Primavera P6 application.

ScheduleReader provides project teams and stakeholders with fast and interactive view access to the project data, by visualizing the information from the existing project plans, as a more sophisticated alternative than communicating the schedule information using static PDF files.

The new features implemented in version 9.0 answer our client needs in response to the recent updates introduced in the 20.12 Primavera P6 software release and are focused on improving the work in ScheduleReader with a strong emphasis on the Assignments view.

The complete list of new features and functionalities is as follows:

  1. Assignment Codes;
  2. Group & Sort in Assignment view;
  3. Activity Codes in Assignment view;
  4. Resource Codes in Assignment view;
  5. UDF tab in “Details” view;
  6. Details in Project Expenses view.

Support for the New Assignment Codes

Organize and arrange the assignments according to your needs

ScheduleReader provides various options to organize the display of information through views and layouts that allow the user to view and quickly access specific project data. Additionally, in each View of the application users are able to filter, sort, and organize the data using specific project categories such as the different “Codes” included in the schedule.

In the new version 9.0, we have extended the support for the new Assignment Codes, which were recently implemented in the Primavera P6 software. Assignments Codes allow you to categorize, group, and analyze the resource assignments in your project plan.
