New Boards Hub, Sprint 214 Update

Dan Hellem

List of New Boards Hub bugs fixed in sprint 214. We enabled the “Try New Boards Hub” message across another ring of accounts. The process continues to go slower than originally expected. Every time we enable the message, we receive more feedback on issues that need to be fixed. This process will continue over the next couple of sprints. We want to get the rollout right and the issues fixed before making New Boards Hub the default experience.

    Hello @Dan Hellem,

    We are using a customised template under the SCRUM Board Process.

    I am trying to setup a rule on task level to restrict the Assigned to Feature and can only be taken care off by my team. I tried using the option of rules wherein I set up the below rule:

    Name: Restrict Access


    When: Current User is not member of group… (Group X)


    Then: Mark read-only… (Assigned To)

    Once I save this rule, I see that the users who are not part of Group X gets restricted to Assign tasks to any of the members. But at the same time it also gets locked for Group X which should not happen.

    Can you please help me get a solution for the same.

    Helo @Dan Hellem, just sent you an email explaining a bug when New Boards Hurb is active, that does not generate the link of Work Item, as well as when it is off, by clicking on the Work Item using the path Boards ->Boards. Can you check that, please?
