This release brings to you whole lot of usability improvements in the area of Agile, STaRT, Dashboard and Mobile App. Now, you have a visual Card Designer to define the attributes and new action icons that should be visible on the card on Execution board. Planning your tasks using STaRT Task plans has become easier with several improvements in copy/paste of tasks and bulk assignment functionality. In the Dashboard, you can copy a widget and move a widget to a different page from the re-organized contextual actions on the widget. And you now have the new timesheet module on the Mobile App so that you can log time across multiple work items and then route the timesheet for approval.
Use the new Visual Card Designer to select the attributes and action icons to be displayed on the card for each workitem type on the Execution Board.
You can now choose to gather votes on cards through the new Vote icon. The Votes field on the workitem also keeps track of the number of votes.
You can now choose to highlight a concern on a card by flagging it with a comment. Similarly, you can unflag it once it is resolved.
Earlier, the Save button on STaRT Task plan used to save as well as checkin the task plan. Now, the Save button acts as an intermediate save so that PM can decide to checkin the plan at a later stage once he is done making all the changes. Also, for better understanding, we have provided a new button ‘Checkin’ and renamed the buttons ‘Edit’ to ‘Checkout’ and ‘Undo’ to ‘Revert’.
Batch Assignment of Resources Simplified
The batch assign window for STaRT task plan shows the assigned resources on top with respective checkbox selected. Also, the selection of checkbox against the resource decides if they should be assigned or removed from the selected tasks. Perform both these actions by using the single Apply button.
Other STaRT Usability Enhancements
You no longer have to reconfigure a widget from scratch to replicate it on the same or another dashboard page. The new Copy Widget and Move Widget actions help you get that done easily and quickly. The contextual actions on the widget have also been re-organized so that the primary actions are seen upfront and rest are made available under the More menu to avoid the clutter.
Add or Edit Item Filters from Widget Settings
You can now add or edit Global item filters from Item Status widget’s settings page in the Dashboard itself without navigating to the workitem’s listing page.
Timesheet module is now available in the Mobile App. On the top, the summary view presents the total hours logged across workitems of multiple projects followed by the list of workitems. Once you are done updating time logs across the required workitems for a week, you can route the timesheet for approval.
Now you can update the application’s theme from the mobile app’s drawer menu. The chosen theme is reflected in your web application account also.
