10.7: New Features

Split Stories during Retrospective Meetings

In 10.7, we have enhanced the meetings functionality and now you can split stories during retrospectives.


At the end of a meeting, a user has an option to click a link in order to see a summary of the Stories Split.


Split stories will show in a dialog box; clicking a given split story will close the dialog box and open the slide-out details panel of the story.


Checklist Updates

Checklists have been enhanced in 10.7. Checklists are now located in the Tier 1 menu to the top right next to notifications. When clicking the checklists icon, a checklist list will now slide in from the right-hand side and will persist as a user navigates through the product. When hovering on the slide panel, the checklist details will appear to its top left and the actions to the top right.


The checklists now have two sizes and can be collapsed into a player view. On the initial load of the checklist, the checklist will slide up in the large-sized view. Clicking the Toggle Size option will make it smaller. Additionally, clicking the Collapse icon on the top middle will collapse a checklist into the player view and will display the first checklist item that has not been marked completed.


  • Individual checklists require no additional info to show.
  • Program Room checklists will require a Program and a Program Increment if it cannot be derived from the Tier 1 context menu.
  • Sprint Planning and Sprint Review Room checklists will require a Sprint if it cannot be derived from the Tier 1 context menu.
