Plan your Versions

You can now plan your upcoming versions via Plan mode in GreenHopper. Quickly create or edit version details (including Version Start Date), drag-and-drop issues into the appropriate version, filter your backlog by a particular version, and view reports on how well your team is tracking towards version release.

In GreenHopper 6.2 we are delighted to launch versions out of Labs. Versions are now automatically enabled for every Scrum board, and appear in the Versions panel in Plan mode:

Originally released (via Labs) in GreenHopper 6.1.4, we added integrated epic/version filtering in GreenHopper 6.1.5, and the ability to create new versions directly from Plan mode in GreenHopper 6.1.6.


View and Edit Version Details via GreenHopper

For your convenience, version details can now be speedily edited directly in GreenHopper (rather than going to JIRA Administration). Simply hover to edit the Description, Start Date or Release Date, or click the drop-down at right to rename the version:


View your Start Date on the Version Report

The Version Report now recognises the Start Date you specified when creating/editing your version.

This gives you a more accurate report in cases where you might plan a version many weeks or even months in advance, but not actually commence work until closer to the release date.
