Adding Card gets Quicker!

Analytics Reloaded!

Old Analytics are deprecated and new Analytics are introduced with optional views-tabular and widget-style in a single view!

  • The contemporary widget-style allows you to reorganize by dragging and dropping the charts as you want by holding onto the chart header.
  • Extend the chart to view more details by dragging the right corner of the chart and reduce to a smaller view.
  • Double –click the chart header to see a maximized view of a chart.
  • Individual filters for every chart that will override the common filter available for all charts on the toolbar
  • Saved layout persists across sessions.

Improvements in Blocking Reason Chart

  • Chart now shows Total Blocked time instead of Average Blocked Time so that we can analyze the true metrics for blocking analysis instead of generalization.
  • Earlier, only cards that were unblocked within the date range were considered in the chart, but it will now also consider cards that were or remain to be blocked beyond the Filter date range.
  • It will include cards that have been blocked/unblocked in any queue within the filter Start and End Lane.
  • In short, we can analyze what was the loss of productivity/time/value because a card was blocked during that time for any period of time.

Changing License Plans gets Easier!

On or before expiry of licenses, you can log on, select the plan ,and extend/upgrade/downgrade from My Account page.

Go Back in Time to Identify Blockades!

  • View the replay of events in an animated series now from your board to identify flow problems in your process.
  • Click the new Board Playback icon on the Board toolbar.
  • Track the CFD and Resource Graph as a continuous flow or one card at a time.

This is a beta version. Do give it a spin and post your feedback and suggestions.
