New features: Creating Views and Filtering by Project Custom Fields

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Over the last few months there have been multiple requests to allow filtering of tasks by project custom fields. So now we are ready to present this feature along with an improved way to create new filters (views).

Let’s use an example when you created a custom field called “Location” for your projects, and now you want to see all active tasks belonging to the projects located in London.

Here is what you need to do…

First, go to the Tasks tab. Then at the top of the saved filters (we call them “views”) and reports list you’ll see the “Create new view” item.
Create New Filter

Click on it and a filter setup panel appears. Choose your filter conditions: Project Location = London and Tasks Status is not Done.
Task Filter

That’s it – the results will be shown below the filter panel in real time!

After you’re done, just save your filter and quickly access in the future.

We are grateful to our customers for their great UI feedback and suggestions on how to improve Birdview Projects. Filtering tasks by custom properties is indeed a great feature! We are waiting for the new ideas. Let’s make Birdview Projects even better!

How to avoid conflict with FastestChrome

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Recently we’ve found out that Birdview Projects does not work properly if FastestChrome extension for Google Chrome is installed. The pink error bar appears while switching between screens or performing other actions. Aside from this, it does not interfere with Birdview Projects operation.

Our research revealed that the problem is caused by the code downloaded from The site offers “advanced visual search technology focused on products”. They have separate browser extensions (for Chrome as well), and this search functionality is included into other extensions, like FastestChrome.

Luckily, Superfish functionality can be disabled in the FastestChrome. Just go to Chrome settings, then choose “Settings”, “Extensions”, locate “FastestChrome – Browse Faster” and click “Options link”:

A FastestChrome settings window appears. Locate “Add Similar Product Search (Superfish)” option and uncheck it.

Reload the Birdview Projects page and whoopee! No annoying error.
We see this error in our records and we try to contact every person who has this error to help get rid of it. However, don’t hesitate to contact us first if you see any errors.
