New in the Istanbul release

Board Tools
Board members can view all of the configuration options, settings, and information for a board in a single location.
Create new board
Users can create either a freeform or a data driven board using the New button on the Visual Task Board homescreen. Users who choose a freeform board are automatically transferred to a blank board. Selecting a data driven board gives users the option to select the base table for the board, a field value for the lanes, and optionally, a board query to filter out specific cards.
Favorite a board
Board members can favorite a board by selecting the star in the board information panel. Favoriting a board adds the board to the favorites tab of the application navigator.

Changed in this release

  • Boards are organized into three different tabs on the Visual Task Board homepage:
    • All boards
    • Boards you own
    • Boards you belong to
  • Users can navigate through cards in a lane by using the arrow buttons in a task card.
  • Load Filter, Save Filter, and Clear All have been added to the board filter. For more information, see Create a filter in List v3.
