We have been talking about our Planning module. It’s taking shape well, and we will release it in the next few days (unless we hit some road blocks). So what can you expect from it? What will be included?
- We will have an Outline view to create project plan. With assignees, due dates and estimates. Similar to PlannerX.
- We are adding a “card view” to add ticket description, category and other details. Also pushing in a simple ticket workflow (new -> assigned -> resolved etc)
- A weekly iteration planner, that allows you to select from a list of incomplete tasks (backlog) and schedule them (via drag and drop) for immediate 3 weeks. (Update: We are skipping on iteration planner for now)
- And a Gantt view that shows your project plan
What will be the most valuable features for you? How much time do you think something like this can save you?
The Card View took much longer than we expected. We added many things to make the workflow easier. And some eye candy 😉 Checkout Nirav’s blog post about Intelligent Time Estimation and Card Deck animation. There is more in the actual product! But we had to keep Iteration planner for later because of this.
