In the continuous journey of enhancing the user experience of our product, we have introduced a brand-new version of the Activity Matrix. The new Activity Matrix provides you a holistic view of your practices, phases and activities, and their association with each other on a grid. Also, it comes with Process Framework capabilities that help you perform different operations like setup the practices, phases and activities as per the need.
Note: The Process Framework menu has been renamed to Activity Matrix.
Earlier, you could select only one workitem type, for example User Stories, in the Backlog section of the Agile Backlog Grooming to groom its instances. From now on, you can select multiple workitem types like User Stories, Defects, Adhoc Work, etc. and groom their instances at the same time.
Earlier, the ToDos/Tasks (against which you need to log time) used to appear directly under the Project name in the Timesheet with no context of the parent workitem (User Story or Workpackage) to which the ToDo or Task belonged. From now on, these ToDos and Tasks belonging to a work package will appear under their parent workitem. This will help to identify a ToDo/Task by its parent workitem and log time against it.
For better specificity, we have renamed the following areas of the application –
Note: The Agile Release Planning and Agile Estimation features are graduated from Beta to general availability.
The old Activity Matrix will not be available effective from 1st April 2022 in the application. You are requested to use this time to get accustomed to the New Activity Matrix that we have introduced in this release.
