Targetprocess v.3.12.4: View Legend, Lists, and Visual Reports improvements

View Legend

You can now add a short description to views from View Setup. Users with access to a view can read its description by clicking on the view's title. This View Legend will also include information about card types displayed on the view, as well as view cards, active filters and visual encoding rules. We hope this will help users to better explain and understand what views are showing.

Entity details view: Assign existing entities from Inner Lists

You can now not only create items from Inner Lists, but also assign existing ones. If you are on a Feature details view and want to assign all existing User Stories, you don’t have to open a new view to do it. Just click the Lookup icon from the User Stories list, and select the entities that you need:

Hierarchy in Inner Lists

To help users better understand how different cards are related, we’ve added a hierarchy to Inner Lists. You can find User Stories under the Feature and Iteration levels, with Bugs and Tasks under the User Story level.

Visual Reports: redesigned report creation flow, and some new templates

The flow for creating reports has been slightly changed. As you know, templates from all sources are listed on the initial report creation page. You can select any of them, or create your own via a Blank template. In the new flow, clicking on a template does not immediately lead to report creation as it did before. Instead, you first get a pop-up with source and chart settings. You can make changes there, or close it and select another template. More details here.

We've also added some additional templates: a Process Control chart, and a Stories and Bugs Burn Up by count of records. The Process Control template shows the distribution of Cycle or Lead Time for completed User Stories in a given time frame. The Stories and Bugs Burn Up template tracks completed Users Stories and Bugs against the total number of these entities in a release.

Visual Reports: dynamic annotations

The Annotations UI has been slightly redesigned, with some new functionality added. Previously, you were only able to add plain numbers, but now you are also free to add calculations. Let’s use a Process Control chart as an example. You can add the median of Cycle time or Lead time values as an annotation line. Your reports will calculate this number and display a line at these points. Whenever data is updated, the value for the annotation will be recalculated and the line automatically redrawn.

Visual Reports: progress bar for report updates

We suppose that it makes sense for users to actually know the progress of their report updates, so we've added a progress bar for this action. This bar also displays the count of updated items vs. total items. Moreover, both the status update section and “Update now” button have been moved to the top, closer to this progress bar.
