Portfolio Lane Enhancements
Kanbanize 5.12 introduces further enhancements to the Portfolio Lane feature.
Collapse/Expand the Portfolio Lane
When an Administrator or Project Manager in the account enables the Portfolio Lane, the system will ask them if regular users will be allowed to collapse/expand it.
Upon confirmation, all users will be able to collapse/expand the Portfolio swimlane via the "-"/"+" sign on the top left side of the lane.
In case that the Administrator/Project Manager disables the Portfolio Lane, it won't be visible to the board members at all.
Filter Board by Child Cards Linked to an Initiative
Via board filtering users can now get a quick overview of all child cards linked to a certain Initiative for better visualization. Click on the Initiative settings icon -> select "Filter Children" to apply the filter on the Team Board and display all children cards linked to the initiative. Click on Reset to remove the filter.
Link Multiple Child Cards to an Initiative
With Release 5.12 you can use the drag & drop option to link simultaneously more than one Team board cards to an Initiative.
Select multiple cards with the mouse selection rectangle and click on the selected area.
Drag & drop the group of cards to the initiative. All the selected cards will be linked to the initiative as child cards and will be placed in their old position on the Team board.
Create an Initiative of Multiple Cards
Select multiple cards that belong to one project -> click on the selected area to drag & drop the group of cards to your desired position in the Portfolio Lane (e.g. the Requested column). The initiative will open as a new card and its properties will be copied from the first card in the group of selected cards -> modify the card properties if needed -> click on "Add card" to create the initiative. All cards that have been used to create the initiative will be automatically linked to it as child cards and will be placed in their old position on the Team board.
Create a Parent Card by Drag & Drop
With the introduction of product version 5.12, you can easily create a parent-child link between two cards.Press the Ctrl. key and drag & drop the card you wish to convert into a parent to the card which will become its child. From the popup window, select the type of relation "Link as Parent" and the cards will be automatically linked to each other as Parent /Child cards.
Preserve the Parent/Child Relation When Copying a Child Card
When you create a simple copy of a child card, the parent-child relationship will be preserved. The parent of the original child card will become a parent of the copied card too.
Second Contributor's Cards - Now Visible in My Queue and Worklog
Until now, only card assignees were able to take advantage of My Queue and Worklog panel and see at a glance all cards assigned to them, across all projects and boards in the account.
Kanbanize 5.12 is enhancing My Queue and Worklog panel, which is now displaying not only the cards where user are assigned as task Assignees but also the cards, where users are assigned as second contributors/assignees.
