Changelog.

Catch up on all the latest changes in the Pinpoint product.

Action Item Upgrades

We're making Pinpoint Retrospectives better every day and have just released some awesome enhancements for Action Items. You can now edit your Action Items and outstanding Action Items will carry over from the previous Retro to the next so you don't have to manually keep track of them. Once an Action Item is completed it will stop carrying over from Retro to Retro. Let us know what you think!

Early Access: Planning Updates

We have made the following enhancements to Sprint Planning in Early Access ahead of its full release coming soon:

  • Auto-Pack will now prioritize issues that rolled over from a previous sprint. You can opt to remove rolled over items if desired.
  • If you have already started your Sprint Plan in Jira, Pinpoint Planning will now show any issues that have been already added to the Sprint and allow you to then plan around those preplanned issues.
  • When creating a Sprint Plan, the calendar now shows days of the week and defaults to today's date to make it easier to pick the correct date ranges for your sprint.

Improvements & Fixes

  • Improved the sorting of Retro Discussion cards to ensure the focus of discussion remains in sync for all participants.
  • Resolved an issue where deleted teams were appearing in Team Selector dropdown.
  • We updated our data science models to generate more accurate interest data in the Pulse Feed based on user-generated content like comments and posts. You will now see more of what is important to you.
  • Sprint Traceability is the first “code” based metric we have introduced to Sprint Health. It expands on a team's baseline and opens the door for other Code metrics like Code Churn to be added in the future!

Pulse Collaboration & Bookmarks

Collaboration and bookmarking features for Pinpoint Pulse went from Early Access to full release today!

Collaboration

Pinpoint Pulse now provides the ability to interact with posts in your feed and even create your own posts. You can add comments, mention specific users and provide a reaction to posts in your feed to let your team know how you feel!

Bookmarks

Click the bookmark icon on anything in your Pulse feed to add it to your bookmarks tab to come back to later. Need to reply to a comment but don't have time right now? Seen Pull Request activity on an important bug fix that you'd like to follow? Maybe somebody on your team did something awesome you want to thank them for later? Bookmark it!

Improvements & Fixes

  • A user's avatar would flash when voting on issues in a Retro so we have put in a fix for that. Thank you to Lisa at SkyWatch for reporting the issue!
  • Fixed a bug in Retrospectives to help ensure the selected card for discussion is the same for all participants.

Organization Team Metrics

We are excited to unveil our shiny new Organization view with uplifted Team Metrics cards. With these cards, there is less of a focus on your teams' current Sprint / Kanban board and more of a holistic look at team performance. Which teams have the fastest merge time? Are your teams' cycle times higher or lower than they were one month ago? Is our code traceability improving over time?

Improvements & Fixes

  • Voting in Retrospectives was a little fragile and our UI sometimes wouldn't render the votes correctly so we made that more robust. Huge thank you to Kris from IDIQ for bringing that to our attention.
  • Fixed a problem where occasionally the incorrect linked accounts would be displayed in the User list.

User's Linked Accounts

No more mystery around Pinpoint User's linked accounts! We now show you linked accounts in the Settings > User List so you can immediately see which users are linked to their Code & Issue source systems and which are not.

Account linking is important so that code and issue activity can be accurately attributed and analyzed.

Early Access: Pulse Collaboration & Bookmarks

We're working hard on making Pinpoint Pulse more interactive and today we're launching some exciting Early Access updates with collaboration and bookmarking features! Enable early access in your Settings page today to check them out.
