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".
You need an account at https://support.oracle.com. From there just search the knowledgebase for the ID number 1515477.1
