Slippage Indicator in the Portfolio Budget Tracking and Monitoring (PBTM) Chart
The new Slippage Indicator encompassing the outer circle will indicate how a Theme or Epic is deviating from its ideal completion. Based on the slippage percentage, the ring will change the color from green, amber to red indicating how well the work is moving towards its completion. Read here to know more about this chart.
Now, use the playback feature to observe the flow of the cards over a certain date range. Play, pause, increase or decrease the speed of the playback and view how the bubbles change shape as they move from left to right.
Get more flexibility while deriving the Actual Cost for your Lean Budget.
Whether your team follows Scrumban or Kanban, the revamped Lean Budget module lets you define the aggregation of the Actual Cost either by the Estimated hours entered on the Card or the sum of the Actual Efforts entered on its To-Dos multiplied by the Currency Conversion Factor.
If you decide to derive the Actual Cost from the To-Dos, then define the $ equivalent of an hour of To-Do in the Organization Admin policy. Based on that conversion rate, the aggregated To-Do efforts will be converted into the $ value.
For the easier navigability, the Currency Conversion Grid has now been moved to the Board Editor page of the top-level Board.
More power to the Board Filter! Now, you can even filter the Swim lanes using the Lane filter attribute and view exactly those ones which you want to on the Work Board.
We have made a couple of enhancements in the Field Type for the custom fields:
- Introduced another field type, Regular Text, which can be used to enter text, numbers, symbols, or spaces.
- Increased the permissible number of instances for these field types (Integer, Boolean and Date) in a single card type.
