October 16, 2015 release notes
Significant updates to group messaging integrations with Slack, HipChat, and Flowdock were launched this week enhancing product management transparency and collaboration through streaming product updates.
Key features of the integrations include:
Configure and send over 100 types of activity events.
Customize which strategy, release, idea, and feature updates you stream so everyone can focus on what matters most.
Create as many Aha! streams and corresponding Slack channels, HipChat rooms, and Flowdock Flows as you need.
Example streams include:
Features: track all team comments on key stories
Releases: track all product launch efforts
Customers: track all newly submitted ideas from customers
Development manager: track updates from specific team members
Several improvements to audit updates posted to the Home - Activity page were rolled out making the information easier to understand both in Aha! and the group messaging products. Updates include the following:
Delaying the posting of audit records for 5 minutes to ensure the user is done with their update before firing an activity change. This will help to reduce the overall volume of activity updates.
Differentiate between public and private comments.
Idea visibility changes have been converted from a numeric value to text.
Feature duration estimates have been updated to human readable numbers.
External Release Dates reflect updates to the "round date to" timeframe.
The Initiative setting "Show on roadmap and charts" has been modified from displaying as true or false to yes or no.
To-do email reminders will no longer be sent on weekends.
Chrome version 46 and Safari version 9 both introduced changes that adversely impacted mouse wheel behavior. This change fixes the behavior of scrolling on the Features - Board screen and other places where the mouse wheel is used.
