New Enhancements


  • Syncing themes: Users can now sync theme target start/completion dates, health, and PI associations based on edits made to a roadmap. Simply, click the Sync button after modifying themes in a roadmap to sync the data back to AgileCraft.


  • Feature estimation method supports Fibonacci: When a user selects points as the estimation type via Platform > Portfolio in the Administration module, Fibonacci is now a selectable value available under the Feature Estimation Method field. Selecting this parameter enables a Fibonacci sequence of numbers when defining points for a feature in the backlog. Options include: 0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 20, 40, and 100.


  • Associate products to AgileCraft objects: Via a product’s Details panel, new drop-down menus allow users to associate products with personas, business model canvases, competitors, detached instances, and visions.

Product Room

  • Coming Soon: Significant progress was made on the new Product Room, which will be released shortly. The Product Room will serve as an information radiator for all facets of your products, including effort distribution, theme effort distribution, effort vs. value, and delivery statistics.

Business Model Canvases

  • New Smart Blocks feature: Users can create new Smart Blocks for business model canvases. Smart blocks render all personas, customers, or competitors tied to a product. If data changes (new personas, customers, or competitors) anywhere in AgileCraft, Smart Blocks are dynamically updated when a business model canvas is refreshed.


    • Support for impersonating TFS/VSTS users when synchronizing work item history that allows for a more accurate representation of who made the changes and when those changes occurred.
    • Fixed the TFS/VSTS menu name in the Administration area.
    • Fixed issue with AgileCraft audit logging across synchronized assets.
    • Added a Visual Studio icon to audit log entries in AgileCraft.
