Release Notes

February 23, 2018 Release Notes

New Features

  • We’ve merged lists and filters for all workflows - that’s Projects, Improvements, Incidents (if your organization is using the Incident Add-On), Tasks, and Charts. Now, instead of picking which workflow you want to access from the left navigation bar, you’ll just click “Lists” and be good to go.

  • When you escalate an Improvement, it may now be transferred to a new Location. Each Improvement’s template can be customized to determine who can transfer an item when escalating it and how the new Location will be selected. Never want a certain template to transfer during escalation? We can do that, too!

    Reach out to your Customer Experience Lead to take advantage of this improvement.

  • Users can now subscribe to a Board to get a reminder to check that Board in their subscription emails. A Board’s editors can also add other users as subscribers.

  • If you’re creating an item, you can decide whether it should enter the New, Planned, Active, or Deferred status directly from the Create screen.

  • We’ve revamped the entire experience of working with Charts. Each Chart is now a specific type - Cartesian (Bar/Line), Pareto, and Bowling - and you’ll no longer see options relating to types you’re not using.

  • You can now drag and drop the bottom of a Card to quickly change its height on a Board.

  • We’ve added a new “Likes” column to the List View which shows how many people have liked a particular item.

  • Tasks can now be added to X-Matrices.

  • Projects and Charts can now be deferred.

  • After copying a Card to another Board, the link to that Board is now included in the success message so it is easier to go to that Board.

  • We’ve made several small changes to improve the overall look of the app.

  • When working with a Network diagram (such as in the Reports or People sections), filtering by Level Type will generate a new icon -  - alongside that field. Click this icon to quickly select all Locations of that Type.

  • You can now copy Charts just like you can any other item.

  • When editing a People List Card in Internet Explorer, searching for a value by typing it in a filter field will no longer hide all but the last letter entered.

  • Importing an item will no longer cause a lockup or performance hit.

  • A bug was fixed which caused an item’s PDF export, which included the list(s) of nested items, to ignore any of the filters entered on that panel by the user.

  • When using a custom layout template, the maximum length of 150 characters for the Title and 250 characters for the Title Tooltip is now enforced, preventing errors when saving.

  • A bug was fixed which prevented anyone who couldn’t edit a Board from seeing the parent breadcrumb.

  • People List Cards will no longer be temporarily renamed after the list is expanded.

  • Users can now create an Attribute Type with the same name as a deleted Attribute Type.

  • The Network diagram on a Board filtered by Location will now expand to show the default Location, regardless of which tier that Location is on.

  • A bug was fixed which caused certain dependencies to not be shown on the Gantt View.

  • Users will now be able to access a scrollbar when necessary while editing a People List Card.

  • Clicking near, but not on, the “Like” icon on the Notifications & Updates screen, will no longer both ‘like’ and open the item.

  • A bug was fixed which hid the option to sort lists of items by the start date.

  • Entering only a blank space when naming a Chart will no longer result in an error, but it will not be considered a viable name.

  • Users can now click anywhere in a field to open its drop-down menu.

  • A bug was fixed which prevented lists of users drawn from the User Engagement Summary Report from populating when no Location was chosen.

  • Text fields can now be changed into text areas and markdown fields. Reach out to your Customer Experience Lead to take advantage of this update.

  • A bug was fixed which caused a Resolution panel to become visible on Task templates under certain conditions.
