In between working on some large next-gen feature work as well as performance improvements, we’ve been busily delivering some awesome quick wins on the next-gen Backlog view.
We have listened to you that key actions in the Backlog, during planning / estimating / grooming, take a long time to complete due to too many clicks. And we understand you are frustrated when you have to wait seconds for issues to become interactive so you can update key pieces of data.
You can now update the status, the assignee, and the story points for a piece of work without having to open the issue view. Simply click on the assignee avatar or status lozenge and you’ll be presented with the relevant options.
And for teams using Sprints, you can now create work directly in your current sprint rather than creating this work in the backlog list, and subsequently having to move it into the sprint. Whilst we acknowledge scope changes should be minimised in Scrum, we have listened to many of you that are using sprints and also need to manage unforeseen work such as fixing bugs.
And if you’re not already using the Backlog view in next-gen projects, then why not give it a go? Project admins can quickly enable the Backlog view in the Feature page under Project Settings.
Let us know what you think!
