Filtering on the Agile board

In Agile 1.6.1, a new feature was added - the assignee group board filter. It means that you could filter the Agile board items via the group as assignee issues. You may check the following screenshot reference to make the situation clear:

As you can see in the picture above, the cards (issues) have assignee the group (whole group name) but also users. This means that these users are members of this particular group. Please check below:

The filtered Agile issue cards are accordingly with an assignee
  • Managers (the full group name)
  • Kutcher Ashton
  • Smith Paul
