We are back with another release packed with new features and enhancements to help you succeed on your SAFe journey. We have introduced the Auto-movement and Restrict Movement of cards that offer you more power and agility in managing your parent card. The Forecast Date feature is enhanced with the advanced option that can predict the completion of a card based on combinations of card attributes. Moreover, we have introduced REST API’s for a smoother integration of SwiftEASe with any other application. Let’s get to know more about this release.
Introducing Advanced Method in the Forecast Date Feature
The capability to see the most likely date of completion for a card gets bigger and better as we have introduced the Advanced calculation method in the Forecast Date feature. With this Advanced method, you can track the completion date of a newly added card based on the various combinations of default and custom card attributes like Card Type, Class of Service, Severity and others. Read more about it here.
Moving Parent Card Automatically
We have introduced the auto movement of parent card which helps it move from one column to another automatically as its child cards pertaining to any of those columns are archived or moved to the Done column. Read more about it here.
Restricting Movement of Cards
The restrict movement of parent card helps you enforce the restriction on card movement unless its associated child cards are not archived or moved to the Done column. Read more about it here.
Introducing REST APIs
Now, integrating with SwiftEASe becomes smoother and easier with the introduction of REST APIs in this release. Along with SOAP web services, we have also offered you a range of REST APIs which you can use to integrate SwiftEASe with any other application. Get to know more about it from this page.
Introducing Collapse Empty Column feature
We have introduced the Collapse Empty Columns feature to collapse all the empty columns on a lane. This will not only help users to access the board easily by hiding all the empty columns and lanes but also make the board look more organized and summarised.
Now, other than the card count, you can also set the WIP limit of a lane or column based on story points also. You can enable the WIP limit in terms of estimate from the Board Policies page.
