MilestonesScreen Shot 2017-10-23 at 1.08.30 PM.png

Capture and communicate important dates so your planning and delivery teams understand interim targets, sync points and important events. Milestones offers a simple way to keep these key dates visible in your planning process views so that everyone involved remains aware. Create and view milestones in your roadmap and also see them in high level planning views such as the Program Board and Solution Board. 

 

 

 

 

My ViewsMy Views

Now you can save the grid views on the complex filters you have created with “My Views”.  The “My Views” button makes it easy to save and recall customized filters on the grid, including which columns are visible, editable fields, page sorting, and number of items per page. For example, product owners can now streamline their backlog to easily switch between different views based on their teams and projects.  Plus, you also have the option to save your current project scope selection into your view.

 

 

Team TransitionsTeam Transitions Configuration Screen

VersionOne Lifecycle continues to empower teams by allowing team autonomy and self-organization with greater flexibility in Team Transitions.  Teams now have the ability to define transitions at the team-level, the automatic status change triggered by an event such as quick close to a story.

Insights Dashboard

Continuum: Insights Dashboard

The new insights dashboard brings all of your devops data to a centralized location. Leveraging data from your VCS, CI server, and Continuum automation, the new dashboard allows you to gain insights from relevant metrics. View the the number of automated vs. manual activities performed across packages and progressions. Finally, you can also gain access delivery data across all of your Continuum packages to see with precision what has been delivered to your customers.

 

 

MutiVersion Dashboard

Continuum: Multi-Version Dashboard Metrics

Progression metrics dashboards now allow you to access metrics across delivered versions. Continuum users can now choose to access "Flow" and "Risk" data either for a single version or for a range of versions. This will allow you to trend data and gain insights for a set of common versions that have been delivered to end users.
