PROAD Software News
New features at a glance
From our Development Laboratory
PROAD is the most popular software in the project business - and to keep it this way, we develop new features almost daily, streamline existing work flows and tune the design. Our target is to provide you with the smartest, most contemporary and intuitive software on the market. We therefore regularly share information with our users and get reputable technology and UX-experts on board as our "sparring partners".
Not every idea can make it into our releases and many minor improvements seem unspectacular at first, but in fact contribute to more straightforward and uncomplicated operations. We would like to present you with the most important product news and previews.
Interface to the HR system "Personio"
It's a match: The new interface concerns the master data of employees and freelancers as well as absences (sick times, vacations). For the synchronization, those fields can be defined in PROAD into which data from Personio should be transferred. Linked data fields are automatically synchronized at regular intervals, so that this data only needs to be maintained in Personio and is also up-to-date in PROAD. Via the interface, employees and freelancers can be created in PROAD or existing PROAD employees/freelancers can be linked with those from Personio. If you are interested in licensing, the PROAD support team will be happy to receive your inquiry.read more

New features for time recording
The option "Project selection" under "Agency > Settings > Options > Time recording" is now called "Time recording according to project status" and has also been adapted: Previously, the option only influenced the project selection in time recording so that projects with a certain status could not be selected for recording times. Now it is additionally prevented for projects with such a status that existing time recording entries can be adjusted, deleted or created in other ways (e.g. by the functions "Copy to" or "Move to"). This motivates employees to record their times promptly - also to avoid absenteeism.read more
Update of XRechnung to the current version 2.2
Only for the german market: The version standard v2.2 for the creation of a digital invoice ("XRechnung") valid from 01 August 2022 has been integrated in PROAD, so that all "XRechnung" invoices created from this date correspond to the then valid version.

New widget "Productivity"
In PROAD, your productive time is defined in addition to your contractually agreed working hours. This is the time you should typically spend on chargeable projects. With the new "Productivity" widget, you can now see your personal productivity score at any time. The widget determines your individual productive time from the master data, deducts sick leave and approved holidays in the period under consideration and thus represents your personal target value for productive time. This is the number of hours you should work as billable time per week or per month. Your actual value is determined from your time recording entries, i.e. the number of hours you have worked on client projects (and if desired also on projects for prospects). Your productivity is calculated from the ratio of both values and displayed as a percentage in the widget.read more
