Key Takeaways

Item colors & legend

The Timeline View is a visual view, so colors are an important part of enabling you to visualize and share your plan. Up until now, the color of timeline items represented teams. This release allows you to color code your items based on a variety of fields, such as Product, Importance, Status, Release, etc. In order to do so, first click on the settings button, and select one of the options under "Item color". In some fields, such as teams and releases, default colors are defined; in other fields, no default colors are defined, and gray is used for all items. In both cases, the color of each field value can be manually set by clicking on an item of that value or from the legend.

We have also added a color legend, to view and define the various colors.

Release/sprint indicators

In the Timeline View, your items are presented according to their dates, which helps you understand where your items stand in relation to your deadlines. As of today, you can add an extra visual layer of releases and sprints to your timeline. Open “view settings” and select your desired time indicator.

Show/hide dependencies

Timeline views provide valuable visualizations of dependencies between items. However, sometimes it may divert people's attention and display information that is sensitive or simply not relevant for them. In this release, we added the option to hide dependencies from the Timeline View - simply click on the settings button and turn off the “Present Dependencies” toggle.

“Group by” color

The "Group by" controller in Timeline View helps to divide items into different groups, such as releases, products, teams, etc. Up until now, all grouping options had the same color. The new release makes it possible to color groupings individually. Simply click the three dots next to the group title and color the specific group accordingly.
