Learn more about the upcoming changes

Enhancements and Features

Estimation Conversions settings menu

The Monte Carlo / Forecast Setup settings menu found at Administration > Platform > Portfolio has been renamed to Estimation Conversions

We've updated the available entry fields in the menu and added some new conversions:

  • Removed the Low and High columns
  • Renamed the Most Likely column to Estimated Story Points
  • Added Member Weeks: calculated as Team Weeks * 6 (assuming six members per team)
  • Added FTE/mo (full-time equivalents per month): calculated as Member Weeks / 4 (assuming an average of four weeks per month)
  • Added Hours: calculated as Member Weeks * (6 * 5) (assuming six-hour workdays, five days per week)


These estimation types were added to support users that bring estimations in from spreadsheets that may use these values. In the future, we'll look to use these values and conversions in various locations for resource planning. 

Performance: Users dropdown replacement

For better user experience with a long list of users, we changed the type of dropdown to load the list by portions. These changes were applied to user-related fields for checklists, scrum of scrums meetings, specifications, risks, and objectives.


Performance: Team Room

Database usage has been optimized to enable better performance when accessing and using the Team Room.

Release Vehicle APIs

We've added update APIs for release vehicles, with the ability to run put and patch commands. 

(Moved to 10.73) Strategy Room: New pyramid and work item links

Coming soon: an updated, more robust version of the Strategy Pyramid, inside the Strategy Room. This enhancement was scheduled to be part of 10.72, but due to technical changes, you'll see the new pyramid in version 10.73
