2.2 Usability Enhancements

2.2.1 Know the Release and Sprint Scope in Story Mapping Board

We have introduced card count in the Story Mapping Board to show the total number of cards present in a particular row. Since each row on the board is either a release, sprint, or persona, you can easily know the count of cards planned for a release and sprint.
