1. Burndown- New features and performance improvements
We previously shared about the burndown chart (see past article below), but now we have some additional new features & performance improvements.
As the burndown chart is gaining more and more traffic, we've added several additions in the last few weeks - features & improvements.
Burndown chart by the number of items
Until today the chart was calculated by the sum of Story-point/work days of each task, now the chart can be calculated by the total amount of items in the sprint
Weekends can now be considered as days without sprint progress and the ideal progress (grey line) of the sprint will be adjusted by them.
The weekend definition is taken from the account settings.
Dynamic axis names
Axis names will be taken dynamically from the board.
Charts by item count will use the board item terminology, while sum values will use unit settings of the selected number column (E.x - 40 SP / 30 Days).
Activity log improvements
The activity log button was extracted outside and will toggle the activity log on and off on click.
Added a dynamic sticky date on activity log scrolling
2. Burndown tooltip
As we're keep improving and releasing new features to the burndown, we've decided to increase its discoverability by exposing a tooltip directing users to the sprint's burndown upon sprint start.
When are the users going to see it?
After one click on start-sprint the tooltip will appear under the menu button.
The tooltip will open the sprint's burndown which will help the user to track upon sprint progress
Reasons for the burndown tooltip:
Improve exposure to users
Make the burndown a unique feature
Explains about the feature and its purpose.
3. Epic Creation indication
Current state: there is support for creating epics directly from the tasks board. In this case, the users didn't get any indication that the item was created and we got several reports suspecting a bug.
We added support for a tooltip that gives the user an indication that the epic was created
💡 Stay tuned for more updates in the future!
