After the launch of Business Rules in the previous release, this release brings to you multiple ways to track all issues affecting your card’s progress directly as well as automated by Business Rules. Now you can provide visibility of all blockers and impediments for your card by raising multiple blockers or flags. Similarly, you can automate the same via Business Rules with the help of the new triggers and actions. All this and more are bundled in this release to empower your Agile transformation journey so that you can continue to deliver better outcomes.
There are times when multiple issues need to be resolved so that the card continues to make progress across the value stream. These could be blockers due to which you cannot move the card or impediments that need action by the card owners. In order to serve this need, you can now add multiple blockers or flags on a card and unblock/unflag them as they get resolved one by one. This way, you get visibility on the blockers/flags that need to be resolved or acted upon.
Now that you can give visibility of multiple blockers and impediments for your card manually, the same can be automated via Business Rules. For example, every time a blocker is raised that requires assistance from another team, you can automate the creation of an action item for each team. Also, in addition to Block/Unblock actions via Business Rules, we are now supporting Flag/Unflag actions. So, you can configure a Business Rule to flag a card automatically when the Due Date has passed so that the card owners do the needful to get it back on track. This way you can set up Business Rules to add multiple Blockers or Flags and update the card when it is Blocked/Unblocked or Flagged/Unflagged, as per your business needs.
