    Whats new in SP5 P6

    987682
      Hey all!

      I am a very new user to Primavera (1 week) and am still trying to grasp a few things. My company is planning to upgrade from SP2 to SP5 (we will upgrade to SP3 first ofcourse).

      I was wondering if there was a list of "Whats New in SP5"? I tried checking online and all I got was a dead link on the Oracle site.

      I have seen the "Issues Resolved" but I am more keen to find something that would benefit the users and not just the system admins.

          There's never been a service pack 5 for P6.

          What version are you running? To check, open up P6 and go to Help - About P6

          You should see something like this: Release: 7.0 Service Pack 4

          Most people will describe their version as "P6v7.2 or P6v8.0".

            Actually, there is a SP5 for P6 v7.
            You can see the details in the following KM note:
            Primavera Project Management P6 version 7.0 (P6 v7) Service Pack 5 (Doc ID 1515477.1)

            Regards

              Oh, my mistake. Looks like it came out in December.

              I was going off the versions listed in the knowledgebase version pull down menu.

              Looking through the changes, it's all bug fixes.

                Thanks! Sorry for the next question and it may sound really novice but how do I find the Document?
