Agile development on a real project (we do Kanban)
New release v.2.24.1 is there with many improvements.
- It is possible to search inside custom fields
- Search by numbers works (finally!)
- Search indexing works several times faster.
Editor was improved and restyled.
Drag and Drop Images
Now you can add pictures right into Description field via drag and drop!
Now you can send links to Views quickly with a predefined format [url]/entity/[id]. For example, this link points to entity with id = 87443 http://targetprocess2/entity/87443
Share link action is added into all Views, so you can send links to a particular entity faster.
Quick Add Section
Quick Add actions were moved into a separate section, and now there is not redirect to other page to add anything.
- Bugs with deleted attachments cannot be imported from Bugzilla
- Mercurial Plugin – “unknown revision ’3/17/2013′” error when specifying a start date in profile settings
- Attachments are not completely removed from the server when a user story is deleted
- TP update fails due to DB being locked by plugins during SQL update phase
- Git plugin error “String was not recognized as a valid DateTime” if TP is installed on non-English Windows
- ‘Mark as Duplicate’ service fails
* Improved performance in the lists
* TestTrackPro: TTP Id can be mapped to TP custom fields

This minor release includes several improvements to the Views. We are going to drop the old views very soon, so we’re catching up on the missing features.
Assign as many people as you want
Now you can assign many developers, many testers, etc. There are no limitations:
However, these multiple assignments can be seen only in the Views. For example, in a List there will be just the “…” sign showing that more than 2 people are assigned:
Fast Assign/Edit for Project
Now, if you’re in the User Story view (or the view for a Bug, Feature, etc.), you can quickly assign or change Project in the Info box on the right:
Tags Auto-Complete and Tags Cloud
It’s been pretty confusing with the tags before: one couldn’t easily identify which tags belong to this entity, and which don’t. Now the auto-complete options are suggested in the ‘add tag’ field:
You can also click on the Tags Cloud to see the most used tags:
New custom field type: multiple related TP entities
This is a multi-select custom field: bugs, user stories, requests, test cases, impediments etc. can be shown as related to some entity. There’s no strict dependency, just a relation. Names appear as you click “add item” and start typing, then you can make a selection. See the entities related to this user story in the Related tab:
Windows 8 & Windows Server 2012 with IIS 8 supported.
Other Improvements and Fixes
New custom field: Template URL
This field should be used if you need to generate many URLs which differ by just one value,
e.g. for bugs or tests cases management, or for technical support requests.
Profile page is shown first to new users as they sign in
When people get a “welcome to TargetProcess” email notification as new users,
and log in to TP from this email for the first time, they see their Profile page.
Unique User Emails
Starting from this release, one and the same email address can be used only for one user as a login. Previously, several users were able to share their logins and passwords.
Bugs can be printed as cards now, in case you need them pinned to a board, same way as user stories.
- Whoops on tags renaming in some cases
- Wrong file naming in plugins acitivity logs
- Git integration doesn’t import revisions with long comments
- Lead and Cycle time chart breaks new view if entity Start Date is less than the Creation Date
- New Iteration burn down shows progress for entity which has already been moved to another project
- The “Search in all projects” checkbox allows to see entities from any project even if user is not in the team
- Warning messages for Move/Copy releases are identical
A minor release with several bug fixes.
New Release Burn Down chart
In addition to the new Iteration Burn Down chart, we’ve re-designed the Release Burn Down chart as well.
REST API Improvements
Milestones added to the REST API
Role added to EntityState in the REST API
The retrieve request for add-ons still sent although it’s been removed from the UI
The Mercurial plugin cannot establish connection with the repository
The user who makes an update gets email notifications
Duplicate email notifications
The Visual Studio add-in not working for VS 2012
User Story effort wouldn’t update if a new task is added
New Iteration Burn Down Charts: Forecast added
The new iteration burn down charts now calculate forecast end date based on the actual effort completed.
This functionality has always been there with the old burn down charts, it’s just that now
we’ve implemented it for the new ones.
New Iteration Burn Down Charts available for any Process
The new burn down charts work for any Process and any set of Practices now: both for Points and for Hours, time tracking on/off.
New TFS source control integration plugin
Mapping users is much easier with the new friendly UI. You can use one repository path for several projects, so there’s no need to create multiple profiles. Revisions bind to entities with each commit, based on the comments. Read more on the TFS integration.
