If such are not specified Start Date will be set to the current date or First milestone of the project (depending on which is more early). As for End Date it will be automatically calculated by the system taking into account amount of work after the last appearing milestone.

7. Mobile App

  • Changed logic of multiple tasks assignment with next rules:
  • note that on multiple tasks assignment we specify group and resource name which are used further
    • if any of task’s assignment of the selected task already has assigned The Resource (for any of the group) nothing will be changed in it.
    • If all of task’s assignment contains no group that we’ve specified on multiple tasks assignment selection (first line, cell group) nothing will be changed.

    • If any of task’s assignment contains SEVERAL groups that we’ve specified on multiple tasks assignment selection (first line, cell group) and we have specified additional filter (Resource name), then The Resource will be replaced accordingly to set criterias.

3. PipeLine

Second Part

New version of Epicflow system is released on 30 of May 2018. It includes upgrades and expansions.

Version Enhancements

This section describes the enhancements in ver. May.2018 of Epicflow.

    1. Graphs
  • Added new element Dashboard for historical overview of project flow.

The dashboard is presented in Bubble graph form, it can help you visually monitor projects’ tendencies and act beforehand when you are still in control to change the situation: redefine the scope or add resources. Bubble graph will show you the size of the problem and the status of all projects.

Navigate to the Dashboard in the menu, all ongoing projects will be presented as bubbles in historical overview up to the previous day. The graph neatly displays the projects’ progress based on lead time and project priority.

The projects with the red circles around them take priority. When you point your mouse on the project, you can see the number of man hours and how much work has been completed.

For a better historical view, Epicflow allows you to animate the flow of your projects. Just press a small play button in the left corner at the bottom and you’ll see how your projects were developed in time.

  • Dashboard Axis values View is adjusted accordingly to other graphs’ types axis view.

The graph displays the projects’ progress based on lead time and project priority.

Axis X Lead Time, it is measured in step by 20 points till 100

Lead Time: How much time passed between project start date and project end date

Axis Y Project Priority, it is measured in step by 20 points till 190

Priority calculates from 0 to 100, after 100 the system add days of delay, with a max of 90 days.

  • Dashboard project size adjustment for the better project’s status representation.

We made projects scale bigger for easier perception and distinguishing each of them.

  • Added “Group assignment” element for the Future Load graph.

Now in the Future Load graph, you can add Group assignment’ tasks and analyze an influence: overload or under-load of the group.

GA: all tasks that are not assigned to any resource, but currently only on the group.

2. Task List

  • New Task Stages.

Now the list of filters consists of next items (column “Stage”):

  1. Completed
  2. Not estimated
  3. Ready to start
  4. Upcoming
  5. Not ready to start

You can sort the tasks and have a clear view on the blockers. So you can proceed with team collaboration for the most critical ones.

  • Added information regard which tasks are blocking for the current one.

If you hover over the stage icon you will see a hint with blocker identification.

  • Added different icons for “Upcoming” and “Not ready to start” task but with the same tool-tip.
  • Note field is editable field

From now you can edit context and add some desription to the NOTE field directly in Epicflow. Please note that these notes are not sync back and remains for this moment only in Epicflow system itself.

3. PipeLine

  • Moving Milestones.

This feature allows you to check in the real-time mode how to adjust planning. You can move the due-dates of milestones and system will show you the result, this way you can find the best schedule for each milestone to finish the project on-time and avoid bottlenecks.

  • Sprint dates of the same sprint is set equal for all projects imported from the JIRA env. as epics from the same Source JIRA Project.

After the data import from Jira, you can easily identify the epics.

  • Added Cancel button for MS date change via dragging.
  • Esc” button behavior is added for canceling the dragging action.
  • Added coloring for the projects in the past if there are some remaining work is left.

Now you can view the status of milestones that were started in the past and continuing in the present.

  • Sorting for the Critical Chains in MS Dialog by Critical Chain color.

If you click on milestones you will see the frame of the critical chains that sort by the critical level: more critical at the top.

  • Reordered chains in the MS popup, so the most constrained is at top.

4. Administration (User Management)

  • Permissions to view the approved budget.

On the Admin page, new permissions right were added to manage Budget view

  1. View project approved budget
  2. Change project approved budget

5. Resource Management

  • Restricted users’ dragging and mapping if plus button was clicked.
  • Removed Phone number from the User card.
  • Adjusted highlighting for the rows at Resource Management page.

6. Import

  • Multiple ResourcePools support.

There is an ability to use several ResoursPools in the system.

  • For JIRA changed logic with the tasks in status “Done”.

All tasks with “Done” status from Jira considered as Closed in Epicflow.

  • Added Budget tasks.

Please check more about this useful functionality in the videos.

  • Rem.Hours 0” and “Done” task’s can be configured in a way to be treated by the system with the same logic, as Closed one.
  • For JIRA if Story is set to “Done” status Epicflow system will mark automatically all sub-tasks “Done” as well.
  • Issues that a part of the release, but located in JIRA backlog, will be imported to Epciflow system as well.

7. Mobile App

8. Other

  • Adjusted sidebar.

When the screen resolution doesn’t allow displaying all menu items, the titles will disappear, and only the icons remain but title will be displayed in tooltip on mouse hover.
