General Availability Announcement for Clarity Release 16.0.2
By: Doug Kalkowski
On Monday May 9, 2022 Broadcom made Clarity version 16.0.2 available to all SaaS and On-Premise customers.
Some of the new features available include:
Broadcom has introduced the ability to define “Smartlists” and associate these lists of To-Dos within investments. Users can also share checklists with other Clarity users for common use cases. Additionally, To-Dos can now be defined on Risks, Issues and Change Requests.
Enhancements to Visual Resource Staffing:
Broadcom continues to advance the functionality of the Visual Resource Staffing page introduced in 16.0.1. This module was enhanced to allow for inline edits within the Timeline grid & Details flyout. Users can also now indicate default allocation & start / finish dates when either adding or replacing a role or resource via drag-n-drop or reallocating a role or resource.
Top-down planning Improvements:
The Hierarchy module has been enhanced to allow users to edit investment details directly in the hierarchy grid view, eliminating the need to drill into individual items. Users can also leverage Time-Scaled Value attributes across projects, ideas and custom investments when defining hierarchy metrics. The ability to share saved views across different Hierarchy instances has also been introduced and more!
- Tool-tips can now be added at the attribute level, providing additional context for end users.
- Improved attribute grouping within column selector and filters.
- Improved user experience for discovering the Details flyout with the addition of a right-click action from within the Timeline, Board, and Grid views.
- The Task Duration field is now editable within the Task Timeline, Grid, and flyout views.
- The ‘document’ attribute has been enabled for Risk, Issues, and Change Requests
For a complete listing of all the enhancements included in this release, see Broadcom’s Release notes.

While frustrating, timesheets are an integral component of successful management. A typical resource manager oversees a team working on multiple projects simultaneously. The manager needs to ensure that the right people with the right skill sets are assigned to the appropriate projects as they arise, so a clear understanding of current and future capabilities and capacity is essential. For this, the manager needs to have a degree of certainty that the team is entering project time regularly and reliably.
