More Information

Distribute urgent changes


If an urgent change you have made in a production system is also relevant for other, parallel production systems or for other productive clients in your project, you can distribute it to them using the new “Distribute urgent change” action. The system creates a new urgent change containing the data of the original urgent change, and transports the corrections to the specified system.

Distributing Urgent Changes

Create new task lists for urgent changes


You can create a task list for an urgent change directly from the scheduling tool. You can use this task list only for processing in the background, as it has a connection to neither a change document in the WebClient UI, nor a project cycle.
