Programs beta improvements

As we're constantly monitoring all of your feedback on Programs during its beta phase, we're now plugging in a few improvements.

Better filters for Schedule view

Have multiple plans in your program? No problem! You can now view multiple plans in the Schedule view of your program – or filter the plans to display only what you need to see straight away.

For more info, check out our Program docs.

Program configuration now in place

Previously, a program would just inherit the permissions of the plans that are in it. Now, you can configure specific permissions for your programs as needed.

We're also making it easier for you to select which plans you want to view in your program.

See Program permissions for more details.

No more conflicts when working in parallel sprints

We've improved the way Portfolio for JIRA  handles the work of multiple teams across parallel sprints.

Now, if there are any overlaps across parallel sprints, you can quickly resolve them by:

  • Assigning the sprints to the corresponding teams
  • Or assigning future sprints to the corresponding teams

See Resolving conflicts in parallel sprints for more details.

Everything in the same time(zone) and place

Portfolio for JIRA  now lets you configure the timezone of your plan — so that all relevant sprints dates are in sync across your JIRA Software  projects and Portfolio for JIRA  plans.

To know more about configuring your plan's timezone, see Configuring working hours and days.

Moar JQL operators, anyone?

We've added more JQL operators, to better handle JQL searches for parent links and teams in Portfolio for JIRA :

  • For 'parent link' custom field: IS EMPTY and IS NOT EMPTY
  • For 'team' custom field: !=, NOT IN, IS EMPTY, and IS NOT EMPTY

Check out Showing Portfolio custom fields in JIRA Software for more details.

Minor improvements and resolved issues

  • We've noticed that there are rare cases when not all issues are being displayed in Portfolio for JIRA  – this could be attributed to a variety of reasons. We've double-checked and made sure that no matter the JQL queries you're using, all issues are now being returned and displayed accordingly.
  • We've also made it faster to render your plans in Portfolio for JIRA .
