New Boards Hub, Sprint 217 update

Dan Hellem

As noted in the New Boards Hub 216 Update, we turned on the “Try me” banner for New Boards Hub to new set of customers. As expected, it has spurred a fury of feedback that has kept us busy. It will be at least a sprint or more to address the current backlog of issues reported.

In the meantime, please keep using the New Boards Hub and report any issues you find.
