Story extra info section in release May 19 2019

Introduction

The new release contains new features like an extra additional information section in the Jira collaboration view as well as some minor usability enhancements like the removal of the save confirm dialog and bug-fixing.

New Features

Additional Information

The major new feature this week is the section containing extra information for the selected issue. The extra info section contains information like the creator of the issue, the current assignee, when it was created and updated as well as some more information like priority, progress. etc.

Additional information section

The new section shows the information as read-only and cannot be edited.

Export session to CSV

There is import/export from CSV for the stories to be planned, but before this release there was no export to CSV from the session results. Now, there is a shortcut in the context menu of the refinement session that allows export to CSV of the planning session.

Collaboration view recognizes more styling

Now the collaboration view for Jira integration is able to display tables properly, as close to the Jira display as possible.

Usability Improvements

No edit confirmation

Before there was an annoying message box asking to confirm the change of story summary and description. Now updating the story is done silently and makes the user interface friendlier to the scrum master, especially when no Jira/GitHub or GitLab is used.

Bugfixing

Onine/offline message appears twice

Sometimes, when disconnected the offline message appeared twice. Same when disconnected for too long and reconnecting has failed (no internet, network or other reason) about the online message. Now the online/offline message is displayed only once.

UI glitch in CSV import

When importing CSV planned stories, there was an overlap to the copy-to-clipboard and close buttons of the CSV import dialog. Now this glitch is no longer viisble.

Happy voting!

All those nice features (and fixed bugs) have been completed thanks to our users – they have requested and we have implemented them. Please help Scrumpy Planning Poker become even more convenient for you by submitting a feature request/bug to our Feature Requests page or up-vote an existing feature that you find useful. Thank you!



Jira Cloud add-on configuration in release May 04 2019

Introduction

The new release contains only important new features like the Jira CLoud add-on configuration. No bugs have been reported and fixed.

New Features

A couple of new features have been implemented which also give the foundation to implement some of the most anticipated new functionalities in the upcoming weeks.

Support configuration to projects/boards in Jira

Now the Planning Poker link can be enabled/disabled per project and per user. Additionally the root Planning Poker link at the project’s root dashboard can be also enabled/disabled.

This feature is particularly useful for bigger organizations which do not have all teams and members participating in the voting sessions. When the Planning Poker is disabled for certain users globally, they don’t see the Planning Poker link at all. When the link is disabled for certain projects tat don’t have tickets for estimation, the Planning Poker link is not visible for any Jira Cloud user.

Note: Please upgrade Scrumpy Planning Poker to version 1.0.5-AC.

To enable or disable the Planning Poker permissions globally, go to the Global Permissions in the Jira settings and configure the Allow Planning Poker permission (e.g. which users/groups/roles are allowed to use planning poker globally). By default, Planning Poker is enabled for any logged in user.

Configure Global Permissions

To enable or disable the Planning Poker permissions per project, go to the Project Permissions in the particular Jira project settings and configure the Allow Planning Poker permission.

Foundation for the future add-on configuration pages

In addition to the permissions control which is introduced in this release, future versions of Scrumpy Planning Poker for Jira Cloud will be fully configurable. The add-on now shows a Configure button that shows a configuration page with options that will be extended in the upcoming releases. Please submit new features or up-vote existing configuration features in our Feature Requests page.
