New Boards Hub Update, Sprint 223

Dan Hellem

With the risk of sounding repetitive, sprint 223 was dedicated to resolving bugs. Looks like sprint 224 will be much of the same. We continue to make great progress, but we have a little way to go before the New Boards Hub is ready for general availability.

Notable bugs fixed

Issue Description
#mention in comments #mention in a comment does not add a related link to the work item.
Single child on backlog If the parent only has one child on the backlog, and you delete it, the expand and collapse icons are still shown.
State colors for releases Font and icon colors on the links tab, for release stages, do not match the rest of the state values for other items.
Order number is not correct on large backlogs If the backlog exceeds one thousand items and you scroll quickly down the list, the numbers in the Order column are not correct.
Taskboard filter is not always sticky Filters are not being remembered when moving from taskboard to other tabs and back.
Add to bottom Add to bottom is adding items to the top of the list.
Drag item to the bottom of backlog Unable to drag an item and drop it in the last spot of the backlog.
Rollup column counts Rollup column counts on backlog are not accurate.
Rollup column names Column names are showing refname, instead of friendly name, when showing and adding rollup columns to the backlog.
Drag and drop child items between cards UX display issues after attempting to drag child items between cards on the Kanban board.
vertical scroll bar missing on spring board Vertical scroll bar is missing from sprint board when browser size is reduced.
Date and time format settings for columns Date and time format settings are not being applied to columns for backlogs or queries.
Time zone settings for history Time zone settings are not being applied properly to work item history changes.
Adding links through REST API Links on the work item are not getting rendered properly when adding them through the REST API.
Missing top level and linked info on queries Tree and linked queries are missing the “top level” and “linked” count details on results.
Add new item to task board When adding a new item to task board, it shows at the top of the list. Go to the backlog and that new item is at the bottom of the list.
Error on task board tab change Task board that contains more than 100 tasks will display a loading timeout error when clicking from another tab.

    Hey Dan,

    Thanks for continuing to work on items for Azure DevOps. I wanted to follow up on a few feature request in the community and see if it’s on the roadmap or a ETA on them. You mention next few months for this feature back in October but haven’t seen anything else. The Feature is including linked work task for Full YAML deployment with stages like the Release Pipelines has. Also wanted to follow up on the Dashboard copy to another team and the Queries that get copied (Written like a shared query should be with @teamarea) and it updates the team but the query itself doesn’t pull the info from the new team. So it looks like a bug, so you have to go to the new query and literally update the same to the same name that is shown then save it in order to get the new team results?

    Thanks for your time.

      Hello Andrew,

      I don’t have anything official yet to post, but yes, our teams are looking into this now actually. Keep an eye on the roadmap over the next few weeks for an update on when this feature might be expected.
