Define Story points values
Often in Agile planning teams use a limited series of values for Story points, such as Fibonacci numbers. The argument for using the Fibonacci sequence is a rise of uncertainty following increasing complexity of the functions or tasks that are being evaluated. If your team use another range of Story Points values, you can pre-define them in the plugin settings.
Issues' tags on the card
Use tags to quickly find needed tasks on the Agile board and gain overview who is working on which tasks. Now tags are displayed on the Issue card on the board. If you use them to mark products associated with the issues, then just by looking at the board you will get understanding who is working on which products, and which tasks are currently being done.
Quick board search
This function highlights the cards, that title matches given query.
History of changes
Now you can see the changes of assignee, status and the percentage of tasks completed in a convenient form. We added individual pages to display changes and included links in the field labels. To go to certain page, just click on the link Status, Assignee or %Done on the issue page.
Trendlines on the charts
Agile charts with trendlines show the trend of changes in the project. It let you to see and predict if the team is making enough progress with the project.
Story Points estimation in Issues
Story Points are recommended for Agile teams that implement Scrum methodology in particular. They are used to estimate the complexity and time needed to complete the task, all combined in one productivity metric.
One of the features of applying Kanban methodology is limiting the amount of work (issues or assignments) to increase the productivity. We added WIP functionality which informs you when you reach or exceed the limit of tasks available at the given stage. It the color of the column depends on the number of tasks in the column.
Adding Issues & comments straight on the Agile board
To fasten the process of creating new Issues and comments, we added the possibility to create them right on the Agile board. Together with "last comment" field visible in the issue, it is useful to share fast feedback or update.
Displaying and Editing Checklist on the Agile board
Redmine Checklists plugin is the most popular plugin in the Redmine.org marketplace. To fasten the work with issues that use checklists, we added the possibility to add, edit and mark tasks as "done" straight from the Agile board.
