WoodRanch Technology (WRT), a California based company, has announced the new release of AgileWrap. The latest release of AgileWrap brings many new features and improvements: Tagging in user stories, enhancements in Burn-down chart and personal dashboard.
1. Tagging in User Stories
Users can now group stories by a criteria using Tags (labels) for user stories. A user can add multiple tags for a user story with a maximum length of 30 chars each. To add and edit tags for a user story, start entering tags separated by 'comma' or select existing tags from the auto complete drop down.
Users can filter user stories by a Tag in Backlog and User Stories views. Tags for a user story show along with story name in a grid row. A user can click on a tag name, and filter user stories by that tag. To clear tag filter, click Reset Tag Filter. Tag filters are persistent on Backlog and User Story pages upon revisiting the pages.
2. Burn-down with ability to choose days and instant Refresh
Users can now choose the days to run Burn-down chart for. For example, if your organization works on Sunday, you can configure Burn-down to show on Sundays also. At the time of creating an iteration, select the days (including weekends) for the Burn-down chart. AgileWrap uses selected ‘Days’ as default setting for the Burn-down of the future Iterations.
AgileWrap users can instantly refresh Burn-down. During daily standup meetings, it is helpful to update hours of the team, and view the impact on Burn-down right away. AgileWrap updates Burn-down charts every hour. Using Burn-down Refresh feature, users can view the Burn-down charts with the most recent data instantly.
3. Personal Dashboard shows view for all projects along with individual projects.
Personal Dashboard shows blocked work items, workload distribution, alert notifications, and open tasks and defects for a user. Dashboard now shows consolidated view of all the projects a user has been assigned to. This would help a user plan his work much better when he has been working on multiple projects. A user can select ‘All Projects’ or an individual project on his personal Dashboard, and AgileWrap refreshes all the widgets with the consolidated or individual project's data.
