10X: Progress Bar Updates

New Look & Feel:

In 10X, we have updated progress bars across the application with a new look and feel. New progress bars will reflect across Strategy, Theme, Epic, Capability, Feature, Story, Program Increment, Release Vehicle, and Sprint. The main progress bar will calculate points based on estimations, (SWAG), of the actual item and then will show a calculation based on actual story points.

Progress Indicators:

In addition, progress bars now come with details on mouse over/hover that reflect real-time data. There will be horizontal lines that segment the progress bars to show where the current day is compared to the time frame of the item.

There are two indicator arrows that show only if the item has been estimated or scheduled.

There is a blue dot on the mouse over that shows the default progress bar that is used for that portfolio.

Custom Progress Settings:

In the Portfolio Specific > Admin section, a user can configure which type of progress bar to use.

Users can also specify and define unique conditional progress threshold percentages. Progress threshold percentages define the conditions that display specific progress color on bars.

Users can customize and define progress bars in the Admin settings based on:

1 - Story Points

2 - Item Count

3 - Item Progress based on status

10X: New Impersonate Functionality

In 10X, we have updated and moved the Impersonate functionality to the top-right section of the Tier 1 menu next to Notifications and Search. The key icon grants you impersonate access.

Once in the Impersonate menu, you can click the Setup Personas link on the bottom to toggle through personas that are repeatedly impersonated.

Define your quick-access impersonations by mapping AgileCraft users to personas. Use the Map Personas to Users dialog box to select and map your persona impersonation scheme.

After saving you will have a new panel that allows you to click on the Impersonate button to toggle across roles in under two clicks.

Note: Security update. Anyone can be given access to impersonate, but if you do not have Admin permissions, you cannot impersonate an Admin.

10X: Kanban Updates: Mapping Work Item Types

In 10X, a new kanban enhancement allows you to consolidate work item types into a single column and map the work item states for each work item type uniquely within the same column.

The original state toggle is still located at the top of the new slide in panel (Column Type) for the sake of the Lean Analytics / reports. Notice that when you set up a process step state mapping and the value stream has state mapping enabled, all work items within its specified program will be mapped to the process steps state mapping instead of what you have mapped below it (and of course, any work items not associated to that value stream will use the bottom state mapping).

10X: Added Cancel Status for Features

In 10X, we added a cancelled status for features. Now users can have the flexibility to enter into a PI with the intention of completing a feature, but can stop work and preserve the feature via a cancelled status.  Cancelled status means the feature will not be worked on, or is frozen.

Added JIRA Cancelled Status Mapping:

Features and stories that are assigned to a cancelled workflow in JIRA are automatically moved to the cancelled recycle bin.

There is also a delete item status in the JIRA connector. When this status is configured in the XML, it hard deletes the item in AgileCraft.
