May 2022 Release Notes - Issue Tracking & More

By GITENTIAL TEAM

Hello Gitential Users,

Welcome to our May 2022 Release Notes! We continue to work on many changes and improvements you’ve requested along with those on our roadmap. Now, we can present the ones most recently implemented to you. We hope you will find them nice, useful, and insightful! Got feedback? We’d love to hear from you via in-app chat or email. 🙂 

Recent updates improve issue tracking already in the app, extended Project view, helpful Knowledge Center, and continuous improvement, adding:

  • Jira / Azure Boards in the new Overview tab
  • New tabs for Project 
  • Knowledge center
  • Fixes – invitations via email, support chat

Let’s get into more details!

1. Jira and Azure Boards Issue Tracking

We know some of you wanted to have a fuller view by combining git activities and issue tracking details, so here they are!

Our new Overview tab in Project details shows how your team is working on based on selected Jira or Azure Boards projects. You can set those up while creating and editing a project:

In the first step connect your issue tracking data sources:

And after connecting repositories (2nd step), select the projects that interest you in the 3rd step:

Then just click Create or Update project button, wait a sec for the analysis to go through your data, and enjoy the deeper insights you’ll receive on your project!

Let’s check more details of what you can expect.

The first part shows your Productivity Breakdown. For your selected time range you can see the number of issues grouped by status with a comparison to the previous period for context if work on the project is improving or declining in performance.

The Team Productivity table shows the split of issues by status between the developers working on the same project. You can quickly check what you need by sorting the columns.

The Issue Details table is a summary of issues split per status within the selected time range.

We hope this first release will help you with tracking your performance better with deeper insights in one tool by aligning git activities with logged tasks.

2. Extended Project View

We know you liked the Developer Scorecard view so we wanted to take one or two steps further to update our Project view as well. 

Besides adding the above-mentioned Overview tab, we also:

  1. updated and renamed the Trends tab (previously called Summary)
  2. grouped new analytics into new, categorized tabs:
  • Speed

  • Quality

  • Efficiency

We hope this will provide you with more focused insights and make it easier to navigate through Project’s details.

3. Knowledge Center

We introduced a full Gitential “encyclopedia” where you can check exactly how to use the tool, what possibilities specific features bring you, and collected a data dictionary with tips on what they tell. You have it all available with one click – don’t hesitate to use it!

 

4. Recent Fixes

In the meantime, we had a few small issues that we fixed relating to:

  • inviting collaborators via email 
  • our in-app support chat

Everything works perfectly now so we encourage you to take advantage of it 😉

We’re working intensely on the next features and improvements so stay tuned! If only our backlog and dev team could handle all our ideas… For now, let’s keep it going step by step.
