New Boards Hub Update, Sprint 224


Recommended Posts

Yet another sprint has come to an end, accompanied by a wave of bug fixes 🌊🪲. Our team’s hard work has allowed us to eliminate over 40 New Boards Hub bugs last sprint. With sprint 225, we are ready to activate the “Try the New Boards Hub” message for all organizations. This exciting step will undoubtedly generate another round feedback, which we anticipate, and we expect in dedicating another two or three sprints to address the feedback received. Additionally, we are going to start the process of turning on New Boards Hub as the default experience for those customers in the earlier deployment rings.

Notable bugs fixed

Order number for large backlogs Order numbers are getting duplicated for backlogs over 2,000 items.

Copy link

We made a small improvement to copy the work item url from several areas in Azure Boards. Making it easier to get the direct link to a specific work item. Copy link has been added to the context menus on the work item form, backlog, and task backlog.
