We’re proud to announce the release of Tempo Planner 3.1 for JIRA. This release is really exciting, because it contains lots of new features including a brand new team board and major improvements to the team members timeline. Let’s take a closer look at everything that’s included in the release:
Introducing the team board
In this version we’re introducing a brand new team board. The team board gives a better overview of the JIRA issues a team is working on. The main goal of the team board is to help with the onboarding of new customers, as well as to give team leads and managers the chance to clearly view what their teams are working on.
We also wanted to support teams who do not work in iterations or sprints since our board in the backlog view is only available for people working in iterations. The team board is intended for any kind of team, whether it’s an agile team working in scrum or traditional business team wanting to keep track of their team’s efforts. The new team board helps all teams plan and prioritize their work efforts collaboratively and transparently.
Keep track of your team’s work in one easy view
The team board provides an overview of all issues that have been assigned to members of the selected team. It can be accessed by using the Team Planning link in the Tempo dropdown or by clicking the Planning link in the Team Overview. With the team board all team members can easily view the issues assigned to them. Stay up-to-date on the progress of your teams and view at a glance what the team members are working on and keep everyone in sync. Make strategic decisions based on how things are progressing within your team.
A view of the team board
Easily assign and unassign issues
With the new team boards, team leads can now assign issues to team members right from the backlog by simply dragging and dropping them. Easily assign and prioritize tasks and stories to team members directly from the project backlog, again with a simple drag-and-drop. Team members can easily change the assignee and status category of an issue by dragging it between status fields on the team board. For each column the sum of all the remaining estimates and story points in that column are shown. Make sure that your team is on track and focusing on the right tasks at hand.
Add team members to your team directly from the Team Board
For this release we wanted to create an easier way for team leads to add team member to their team. With that in mind, we’ve built a feature allowing Tempo Planner team leads to add team members to their team directly from the Team Board. Simply click the Add member to team link in the top-left corner and select a team member to add to the team.
Show and hide columns of your choosing
The team board is customizable so users have the option of viewing columns according to your team’s needs.
Improvements to the team members timeline
For this release we’ve made a number useful improvements to the team members timeline. Here’s the low-down on the what we’ve done to the team members timeline:
Click-and-drag to plan
New click-and-drag capabilities are now available on the team member timeline. Tempo Planner users can now click on multiple cells in on the team members timeline to plan their work over a number of days, weeks, or months at a time. Simply click on the day which you want to start the planning process and drag it over to end date of your planned period.
Improved create plan dialog
We’ve made some UI changes to the create plan dialog making it smoother than ever to plan your work. Team leads can now customize their searches by projects, versions, sprints, components, or issues.
New hovering capabilities
When hovering over a plan item on the team members timeline, users can now view in a tooltip the issue key description and the plan dates in question. Get a quick overview of the plan item in question by hovering over it.
Empty states added for improved user experience
We’ve added and improved empty states throughout Tempo Planner to assist new users who have started to use the product. So if a new user starts using Tempo Planner, he/she will get an empty state message indicating that a team needs to be created, and that team has to be linked to a project/agile board. The ultimate goal is to improve the user experience.
This release also includes number of other smaller improvements and fixes to Tempo Planner. For even more information check out our Tempo Planner 3.1 Release Notes for the full list of improvements and fixes.
