What's New – June 30, 2013

The following features were introduced or enhanced in Agile Manager:


Manage the flow of backlog items through their development stages with a fully interactive and configurable storyboard.

  • Set the storyboard mode. Select whether to use the storyboard in Scrum Mode within the context of a sprint, or in Kanban Mode, unbound from the sprint cycles. This setting applies to all teams in a release.
  • Customize the storyboard to match your team's work process.
  • Manage work items on the storyboard. Drag items from lane to lane, while keeping within the time and WIP limits.
  • Analyze storyboard metrics. On the Dashboard, select purpose-designed widgets from the Kanban category.

For full details, see Kanban storyboard.

Application Access Settings

  • Set user access permissions to selected applications.
  • Users can view only features and backlog items associated with the applications to which they have access.

For full details, see Define workspace users.

Full Screen Mode

View the dashboard, task board, and storyboard in full screen mode.
