Our team also answered questions from attendees throughout the webinar. Some of the more common questions have been listed with their answers below:
Q: Hi, thank you for the new github integration. Does the new integration also allow syncing from comments in both directions? Also, is it possible to create github issues via targetprocess?
A: Yes, it allows you to sync comments. Yes, it's also possible to create Github issues via Targetprocess.
Q: Can a metric or Calculated field now refer to the parent name? Ie, can a feature have a field that will contain the name of the Epic that contains the feature?
A: Hi, yes, you can do this with both - Calculated Custom Fields as well as with metrics
Q: Hi, is there a way to show total effort spent for tasks in a user story?
A: Hi! Yes. It is possible. In the User Story, you have a row which shows you the sum Effort of Tasks. For spent effort, you can use Calculated Custom Fields.
Q: My thought about multiple final states is: Hurra!!!
A: We're happy you like this update! 🙂
Q: Will there be default Metrics?
A: Right now there is only "Custom Formula" which acts as a replacement for Calculated Custom Fields. We will add more metrics in the future, such as a custom effort/progress calculation. If you have any specific metrics in mind you which you would like to configure in your account, I suggest getting in touch with your Product Specialist or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Is there any trick to sharing views via URL?
A. You first need to make sure your intended recipients have access to the view by going to View Setup -> Access. Then when you send a link to them, they'll be able to access it.
We’ll have another Product Update Webinar next quarter. If you have any questions, or would like to request a webinar on a specific topic, you can message us at email@example.com.
Have a good day everyone!
