Feng Office 2 / Has anyone successfully upgraded from 1.7.5 to 2.1?
« on: July 19, 2012, 08:19:38 pm »
Recently I tried to upgrade from 1.7.5 to 2.1.  However, after the conversion to 2.0.1 there was an error getting to 2.1.

A number of us have posted and confirmed a bug in this stage of the upgrade process. see www <dot> fengoffice <dot> com and add /web/bugs/view.php?id=3960 as the detail on the URL.

I just wondered if we were alone or just special :-)

Clean installs of 2.1 work fine and I would like to be using it with the better permissions setup and Google calendar sync etc.  However, all my data is in 1.7.5 as I am worried that the 2.0.1 data might have been bad.

Can anyone help with suggestions on how to get around this issue please?

I am using Ver 2.1
Can someone please point me at any documentation on how the new security and user access settings are supposed to work?
And, just what parts of it work in this version?

From what I can see it is not at all obvious and seems entirely unworkable with respect to interacting with external users i.e. as a CRM system.

Surely not?  Please tell me I am wrong and do not know how to use the new settings.

It seesm that the permissions have changed a lot in 2.1
I have a clean install and have setup companies with users.
 When setting their permissions I cannot see the checkbox for
"Assign Tasks to members of owner company"  OR
"Assign tasks to members of other clients"

I am assuming that the People Permissions that is there now when setting the user permissions is meant to replace this and make it more sophisticated.
However... How to I set it up?

I have tried lots of combinations of settings but no matter what I have done, when I try to assign a task as a user from an external company, I do not see other users in my drop down list.

Can somebody please explain how this is meant to work?

Feng Office 2 / DB Error when upgrading from 2.01 to 2.1
« on: July 15, 2012, 04:19:08 am »
During the upgrade form 1.7.5 to 2.1 I have followed the migration page (could not post a link)
However, when upgrading from 2.0.1 to 2.1 I (we) get the following error:

Failed to execute DB schema transformations. MySQL said: Duplicate column name 'archived_by_id'
Error upgrading to version 2.1

This has also been recorded under "Installation"  but I am duplicating as it is a FengOffice 2 issue. (I was unable to post the link)

This effectively is preventing me (us) from updating from 1.7.5 to 2.1

Can somebody please help?

Security / How do I prevent direct access to my added Tab index.php?
« on: April 26, 2011, 07:23:39 pm »
I have added a couple of Tabs to my FengOffice thanks to the contributions of information by people here.
One is the Gantt Chart contribution courtesy of Allen Look.

However, pointing a browser at my Gantt Index Page will open the page without authenticating with FengOffice.

How can I insert PHP code to prevent this?
Currently I have had to resort to .htaccess security (Basic Auth) but this requires FengOffice users to go through this as well.

Can anyone please point me at something similar in the code that would suggest how I can restrict access?
Thanks for the help,

Installation problems / Backup Plugin not working [SOLVED]
« on: April 20, 2011, 04:36:36 am »
I have searched and found reference to this issue in 1.4
However I could not see a resolution to my probelm.

I have a working FengOffice site with working backup.
However, my second site is nto working, showing this error.
"Error while creating database backup: Return code: 2"

I have compared everything including database user permissions and everything seems to be the same, it just does not execute the backup.  It created the "backup" folder but then fails with the error.  Nothing in the folder.
I have checked the log.php file but nothing out of the ordinary - it complains about undefiend variables "last_backup" and "date" on the working installation and the non-working one so I assume that is ok to ignore.

I am sure I have missed something or done something wrong and I would appreciate feedback or suggestions on what I could do to fix this.
Thanks in anticipation,
Steve Hodgman

I have two working hosted installations (1.7.4), one newly setup. Thanks for a great product.  I normally use Firefox and Chrome and these work fine.

I have just tried Internet Explorer 9 and cannot select Workspaces with it.
Cannot see any other report of this so wanted to know if it is just me or maybe a wider issue.

Ideas / Running Reports from cron would be great!
« on: February 28, 2011, 07:16:08 am »
I think it would be great if I could schedule reports to run from a cron task.
The output could be emailed to people.
Would make it a very useful push notification tool.

Perhaps the reports and input specifications could be defined in the Report GUI.
then have a "generic"  script say runreports.php called from cron that will actually generate the reports.

Anyone else think this would be a good idea?

How To's / reporting: Can I emulate the Tasks display?
« on: January 18, 2011, 09:08:46 pm »
G'day there,
I would like to generate a report that will show basically the same display as what is shown in the Tasks Tab, well this version of it.

For a given (parameter) workspace:
I want to have report breaks (headings/ subheadings) by Milestone then Tasks and the subtasks nested in the display
I want to restrict by "Status" (pending, complete, etc)
e.g something like:

My Development Workspace

Milestone Name

Task to create a list
      This is the first item in the list task
      Second task
Next task with no subtasks
third task has su and sub sub tasks
    First subtask
          First sub sub task
         another sub sub task
    second sub task

Can anyone suggest a way of getting this result please?
Steve Hodgman
