Another Batch of User Requested Updates


We're happy to announce three user requested features

ID's visible on all items

All items have had ID's all along, but now those ID's are visible on all cards e.g. in the backlog, sprint planning and so on. This makes it easier to reference a given item so instead of discussing e.g. "the story with the very long name" with your teammates you can now just discuss US-42.

Notification when allocating people outside of project start and end dates

A new thing in scheduling is that a notification will let the user know if they're allocating a person outside the start and end date of a project. This ensures that you can allocate people however you want but at the same time let you know if you're placing people in projects that have not started yet or should already be done.

No hours left on a work item completes the item

If you log the hours against a story or task, and state that there are no hours left, the work item will automatically be set to done. The user can easily override this behaviour directly on the time remaining window, so a much more fluent and faster workflow is now possible. Before you had to manually go to the story to drag it to completion.
