What's New

Issues can now be color coded, and issue counters are displayed for rows, columns and cells

Associate colors to your issues so you can distinguish at a glance what issues are to be discussed, problematic, or any other notation you see fit. In addition, we have added an issue counter that will appear in all rows and columns.

You can now organise your epics

Planning and organising your epics is now easier than ever. Issues can be assigned or unassigned to and from epics directly from a board.

Improved issue preview

The issue preview now shows also all linked issues e.g., all the issues in an epic or sub-task within a feature.




Other Updates and Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue regarding the display of the "Help" pop-up.

  • Minor UI improvements.
