New features

Autorefresh of reports

For all teams using LCD to display ScrumDesk reports we implemented refresh of reports every 5 minutes.

It can be turned on or off on Reports page in the upper top corner.

Capacity Planner

Scrum teams often calculate capacity of the team by using concept of ideal days.

You do not need any excel to calculate then anymore. Click Planning menu item and them Capacity planner button in status bar.

The planner consider following information for every team member:

  • the number of days at work
  • the number of hours focused on project ┬áper day
  • calculated total capacity of team member
  • number of days/hours assigned in project to team member (in any release/sprint)
  • calculated availability indicated free resouce (white background), limited (orange), or overassigned resource (red)

The planner shows statistic of  total capacity and availability of the team.

Charts fixes

Charts were not precise in case of parallel editing of tasks without previous refresh operation. We changed the way how data are processed so they are refreshed before charts are calculated.

Also, charts are now updated immediately upon change so they should reflect the current status of the board even board is not refreshed. Refresh is still necessary to update backlog as auto refresh of stories/tasks is not available yet.

Repository installation

New repository can be installed from ScrumDesk without any other tool.

Till today, it was necessary to use repository installation tool. We still support this scenario, however integration of setup procedure allows to start use ScrumDesk faster.

Repository dialog has been redesigned to better support On-Demand (hosted) repositories as well.

Minor changes

  • Fixed tab order in story, task, sprint and release dialogs
