This update gives you and your team more control and actionability around predicting, enacting, and tracking your workflow progress. 💪

Dependency Unlock Notifications

Dependency notifications (1).jpg

You'll now be notified when Milestones and Tasks are unlocked so you can seamlessly continue your workflow. When assigned to a Task that is unlocked from a task dependency, the notification will lead you directly to the unlocked Task.

If an entire Milestone is unlocked from a Milestone dependency, the notification will lead you directly to the entire Milestone so you can see all of the unlocked tasks.

User Tags Filter in All Tasks

AllTags (1).jpg

You can now filter All Tasks by user tags to sharpen your reporting insights. User Tags are great for delineating someone's role or skillset within your organization, such as Content Writer, Account Specialist, Front-end Engineer, or more. You can now track the open Tasks of each of your User Tag segments in All Tasks.

Fractional Story Points

A Story Point is a predictive measurement that indicates a day of work on a Task, and will visually have your Task represent a single-day duration in Workloads. But sometimes a task will only take half a day, or a couple of hours. Great news! You can now add decimals in Story points, meaning a .5 point Task will only take half a day's work.

PDF Go to Page

PDFPage (1).jpg

You're now able to input the exact page you'd like to jump to when reading through a PDF, so no more scrolling page-by-page to get to the exact spot you're looking for.

Other Changes and Fixes

  • Your custom time filter in My Work will now be saved
  • Technological upgrades to our Overdue and Reminder infrastructure for consistent delivery and overall stability.
  • Fixed an issue with Bulk Deletion of Tasks
  • Fixed an issue with Milestones updating with Task extensions
