We've always supported due dates and milestones in Project. But for most users especially project members, a calendar-like graphic user interface allows you to better track your due dates. The Schedule as we call it will appear in your Overview if you have upcoming due dates on tasks or milestones.
This might come as a surprise but in small businesses account owners change all the time and for various reasons. The most common one is : the project manager is no longer in charge and is moving to another position. You also want to change the owner when the account was created by a partner company who introduced you to GroupCamp and helped you get set up. Changing owner is very simple. By going to the Account application in the admin section, owners will now find a "Change the Owner" link. Choose your owner among the list of current administrators.
