- And more! Check out our full 15.3.2 version release notes
We have updated your burndown charts to accommodate scope change in a few major ways. First, if you add work to an existing sprint or release, then that work will be added not only to today’s burndown bar but also as series to all the days prior.
Conversely, if you remove scope then you have the option to view work removed from your burndown legend.
Next, if you log a worklog and determine that something will take longer than expected, your update will show here in your burndown. This applies to any re-estimations you make to active items.
Lastly, if you remove items that were worked on during the sprint, the burndown chart will show you what work was performed for items that were removed. This highlights the time that your team has wasted working on items that aren’t shipping with the sprint/release.
These changes ensure that your velocity is based on the work logs your team enters, and is unchanged if you’re adding or removing items. This translates to more accurate projections for your completion dates. We’ve also updated the projected ship date gadget to display a speedometer visualizing how fast your team is working. The needle represents your team’s current velocity, and if you’re anywhere in the green, you will finish on time or even early. You can, of course, see the projected ship date as before.
Next, we made updates the Release Planner to use remaining estimate when you move the item into the release. This should allow you to plan your upcoming sprints more easily and accurately, because it takes into account work already done on items.
You can now attach documents to the Wiki and other large text fields. When in the editor, click on the paperclip icon to attach a document. Once attached, the document will display as a link that will download the file when clicked.
Item-type filters can now be toggled on and off. Use this to easily work out of your All Items tab if you need to switch over to a different context, without needing to change your selection in the organize panel.
We made a series of smaller updates as well. These include:
- an increased page limit of up to 500 items
- search results will now grey out any irrelevant parent or subitems
- a number of performance improvements for getting and updating items
