What’s New in Axosoft Version 16.2?

The latest Axosoft is here with UX-focused updates!

Version 16.2 is here! We have a UX-focused release for you with several handy improvements. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Quick Filter on multi-select lists
  • Remaining Estimate update
  • Standup burndown can now be filtered by team
  • Multi-select options in Users section
  • Work logs tab update
  • Audit Trails rebuilt to track more changes.

For a full list of features and fixes please be sure to also review our version history. Also, if you are an Axosoft Installed customer, this version will include all the changes from v16.1 as well.

What do you mean by “Quick Filter on multi-select lists?”

Did you know you could quick filter on grid columns? The option is available when you right click on a column header in grid view:

Hover over a column in grid view to use a quick filter.
Hover over a column in grid view to use a quick filter.

Now we have expanded this quick filter to multi-select lists. Say you tag an item with several options in the your multi-select list. With this new feature set, you can filter down to a specific selection so you only see what you need. Yay filters!

Remaining Estimate update

We made Axosoft a little smarter with this update. Select an item and then hit d on your keyboard.

Use the keyboard shortcut "d" to modify durations.

Now any time both fields are blank when you open a new or existing item, Axosoft will update the Remaining Estimate field when you enter a value in the Initial Estimate field. It will even update as you update the Initial Estimate field.  However, if you explicitly state a value for the Remaining Estimate field then Axosoft will respect that data entry moving forward.

What’s new with the Stand Up

Teams filters for the Stand Up burndown charts are now available. Access this menu as shown below to enable your team filter:

Get a burndown chart that only displays work by the selected team.

Now only items from members of the selected team will show in the burndown chart.

What can I do with users now?

Did you know that you could right-click on a user when you navigate to Tools/ People/ Users?

As of version 16.2, you can multi-select users and right-click to make bulk changes. Activate, deactivate, or unlock multiple users at once.

What other multi-select options are new?

For up to 100 items at once, you can perform the following bulk actions on multi-selected items:

  • Copying to other item types
  • Move to other item types
  • Duplicate
Do more in bulk. Limit of up to 100 items!

Remember, when deciding between “Copy to” or “Move to” we always recommend defaulting to the copy option so you keep an original record.

Where can I add a work log?

It is now even easier to add to your work logs for a specific item. Simply navigate to your work logs tab, and right-click on an existing record to log more work.

Right click on a record to get this menu.

You can also use the keyboard shortcut W to add an additional work log for the selected record.

More Audit Trails

We reworked the backend for Audit trails so that it tracks system changes to include:

  • Projects
  • Release
  • User
  • Team
  • Contact
  • And more
Access the Audit Trails tab to review item and object history.
Access the Audit Trails tab to review item and object history.

For now, system changes are limited to name changes. Don’t forget, you can also include item audits in addition to any system object updates.

Lastly, we updated the Organize Panel and the Details Panel so that they fly open or close when you click the arrow icon. There is no need to pin any longer 🙂

That about covers what’s new in Axosoft 16.2! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your success team.
