Targetprocess v.3.10.0: Cumulative Flow Diagram, Entity Split, Emojis

New Cumulative Flow Diagram

A lot of people have been waiting a very long time for this. We're sorry it took so long, but we had to make sure it was done right. The old solution wasn't good enough, but now we have a solution that we think you'll really appreciate:

  • It is fast
  • It is detailed - you can see all entity states
  • It is interactive - you can hide states and explore dynamics within the selected time period
  • It can be included on a Dashboard

Check out the CFD user guide page to get all the details

Entity Split

From now on, it will be possible to split entities of several types in Targetprocess: Epics, Features, User Stories, Bugs, Tasks, and Requests.

For example: when your Team is doing Backlog grooming and decides that some work assigned to the current Feature should be moved to the next Iteration or Release, you can choose to split the Feature into two entities and plan the second one for another Release.

On the split form, you can see and edit entity properties such as State, Business Value, Epic, Release, and others.

For more details, please see the User Guide article on How to Split Entities.

More Batch Actions

Finally, you can assign a user to multiple items!

Starting with v.3.10.0, you can apply a lot more changes to a set of cards. Move several items to another Project; change their Release, Sprint, or Team Sprint; update the drop-down Custom Fields; change their parent Feature or User Story; assign several entities at once to a user.

Emoji in Tags and left menu

Have you ever had problems sorting through all the boards and views in the left menu?  Us too. It can definitely get cluttered in there, especially when the menu is minimized and only showing the preset icons.

That's why we're adding support for emojis in Targetprocess. Don't underestimate their power. They can make classifying and quickly identifying your views a breeze. Just mark your views with the appropriate emoji icon, and watch the left menu fill up with cheerful (and quickly decipherable) symbols:

You can also mark your stories and other entities using emojis by adding them as tags:

Mon Sep 19 2016

Emojis can also be used to improve visual encoding by adding them as Graphic Tags. Graphic Tags can be added to the smallest card size in all views. Board icons and the Graphic Tags custom unit on cards can be added from View Setup.

Restyled Lists

In version 3.10.0, we've made List views look more like a table. Every column has a translucent separator. Dragging this separator adjusts column width.

Redesigned View settings

We’ve made the UI for views a little less cluttered by moving several controls to the Actions menu. If you need to switch to a different view mode, hide empty lanes, or change the zoom level for cards, just open the Actions menu and select the appropriate option.

Targetprocess v.3.9.3: Keyboard shortcuts, Owner as a lane

Keyboard shortcuts

We've finally implemented keyboard shortcuts into Targetprocess. You can review all the available shortcuts by pressing: "ctrl" + "/"  (or, "cmd" + "/"  for Macs).

Keyboard Shortcuts

There are currently 3 places in Targetprocess where shortcuts are available: views (Boards, Lists, Timelines, One-by-one views), entity views (the screen that appears when you open a card), and Quick Add popups. You can read more about keyboard shortcuts at this User Guide page.

Owner as a lane

We’ve added the possibility to include an Owner lane when setting up a view. This means you can now build views that group entities by the person who created them. Users with admin permissions can easily change the owner using drag and drop. Owners in lanes are filtered by the projects and teams currently selected in the global context.

Minor Updates and Fixed Bugs

  • Added a view menu search placeholder and a "no results" search message
  • Fixed an error that would occur when trying to run a Test plan owned by a deleted project from the Team Iteration view
  • Fixed the absence of required custom fields in the project/program context quick add form
  • Fixed a problem with incorrect card counts in the Person lane when there are multiple user assignments

Targetprocess v.3.9.2: Batch Actions, Terms in Quick Add for all Processes, Entity Conversion Improvements

Batch Actions (States, Tags and Bug Severity)

Starting from v.3.9.2, you can change State, Bug Severity, and Tags for a group of selected entities on a Board or a One-By-One view with just a few steps.

As soon as you select more than one item, you will notice a blue button in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Click on this button to bring up the Batch Actions Panel.

Read more on how to use the Batch Action Panel and our future plans for Batch Actions here.

Terms in Quick Add for all Processes

We’ve added support for terms in Quick Add. From now on, terms from all of an entity's available proсesses will be displayed in Quick Add. This will make entity creation much easier and more straightforward than it was before (when only default terms were displayed).

Imagine you want to create an Initiative, but you don’t know which term corresponds with it in the default process. A bit annoying, right? Now you can find the Initiative entity right in the Quick Add menu, and can create one in less than a minute! Select ‘Initiative’ in the entities list, give it a Name, select the Project it is related to, assign some Teams to it (if needed), and click the ‘Add’ (or 'Add & Open') button.

These changes will affect Top Quick Add, List/Board/Timeline Quick Add and Entity View Quick Add.

Entity Conversion Improvements

When you convert an entity of one type into another (e.g., turning a User Story into a Feature), the ID changes. From now on, you will be able to find the 'new' converted entity by searching for the ID it had before its conversion. You will also be redirected to the 'new' entity if you try to open the ‘old’ entity details view from a direct link.

Minor Updates and Fixed Bugs

  • Login page redesign
  • User/Team fields added to User/Team Allocations export
  • Fixed an issue with the absence of a required custom field on the Project/Program Quick Add form in the context selector
  • Fixed application of a default custom field value when adding more than one entity in Quick Add
  • Fixed default display of current date in Milestone Quick Add
  • Fixed a problem with copying an Epic with nested features to another Project
  • Fixed a case when Planned dates for a card would not be set on a Timeline
  • Fixed an issue where a card wouldn't dissapear from a Timeline after it's dates were changed
  • Fixed overloads display in the Project card planned section
  • Fixed a cut date range in the Allocation tab
  • Fixed a case where the result of a Test Case execution would not be sent to the server
  • Fixed an issue with the incorrect moving of a card to the backlog on Boards with Team and Team Iteration axes.
  • Fixed the display of templates after keyword selection in the Setup Templates tab

Targetprocess v.3.9.1: Share views with specific users, a Recent group for the Assignments list

Share views with specific people

You can now share views and groups with specific individual users. This means that you'll no longer have to create a team in order to make views visible for specific people. Just select 'Custom sharing' in a view's Access tab and choose users who will have access to your view/group.

ShareView

Added a 'Recent' group to the list of assignable users

Currently, when you open a list of users to assign somebody to an item, users are grouped by role. We've now added an additional 'Recent' group that contains users who you recently assigned to work items. Please note: This 'recent' list will only be shown if the entire list of assignable users contains more than 6 people.

RecentGroup

Added the ability to filter cards by the date of the last state change

Do you want to filter your cards by the date of their last state change? You can now use the LastStateChangeDate field for filtering and visual encoding. For example: Let's say you want to see bugs or user stories which have been stuck in the 'In Dev' state for more than 2 weeks. Just use ?LastStateChangeDate < Today - 14(days) and EntityState.Name == 'In Dev' FilterByDate

Add specific views from the +Create menu

From now on, you can create a Board, List, Timeline, or Details view directly from the +Create menu. You don't need to create a board first and switch to another view mode afterwards. For example, if you want to create a list, just click on 'List' from the +Create menu. You can then proceed with the setup of the newly created list by clicking the Setup button on a blank template or on one of the predefined templates. All templates are filtered by whatever view mode is currently active.
