We are pleased to announce the release of JForce 2.5r144 available for immediate download. This version addresses a bug related to the admin panel user edit and deletion. It is a minor release and should upgrade seamlessly.

We recommend all users running Joomla! 2.5 to upgrade their version of JForce to this latest release.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions or comments.

One of the features most requested by our users is advanced reporting. I can't tell you the number of times that someone has asked me if JForce has reporting. I always hate to answer that question. Here's why. JForce as a project management system for Joomla! does not have a dedicated reporting area. We don't have a menu item across the top that says reporting that then links you to a comprehensive list of reports. But I am starting to believe we should.

At this time there are a variety of ways to get information out of JForce and analyze your business and your project statuses. You can easily filter tasks to see completed and uncompleted. You can see coming soon items. You can view all the people on a project and see who has logged in as well as who hasn't. You can look at the project overview and see at a glance the percent completed for each project. And there are other areas where you can take the pulse of a project to see how it is progressing.

But you've asked for reporting. And we'd like your help. If you can take a minute and email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the specific reports you think should be compiled into JForce we will take those reports that are most popular and work them into our next major release. I want to include reporting, but I want to more importantly, include reporting that you, our users, want. If you have ideas on how you would like to see the information (pie chart, graph, bar chart, text report) tell us that information too. By using the power of our users combined knowledge we can create a powerful reporting section for JForce Project Management. Email us your ideas and see what we can do!

Joomla! has recently released a minor version 2.5.4 for immediate availability. We have found that after the upgrade there are a few problems generated within JForce that need to be updated. We are actively working on releasing an updated version of JForce to match. Below are the items that we've uncovered that need to be addressed in our next release. If you have any additional items that should be added to this list please email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

  • Admin access role creation the toggle buttons do not display the secondary value (a visibility tag is not being switched correctly).
  • Admin access role Save function does not Apply and reload page successfully.
  • Frontside Task values not auto-switching when clicking on the check mark (an array_values warning is being thrown).
  • Front end user registration within JForce does not assign the correct Joomla! user group.

Again, we're working quickly to release an update version. If you have questions or concerns drop us an email and we'll be happy to discuss things with you personally.
