So when will we release? The teams are actively evaluating and decomposing the outstanding work. As much as we want to push forward, announce the new date and deliver this exciting Rally update to the market we also want to make sure that we have a high degree of confidence in our next roll-out plan. We will publish a new date and release plan by Monday, November 18.
What if I'm actively using the new UI in Beta? If you're using the new UI already, and are happy with it (many of our users are) there's absolutely no reason to switch back. We are only going to continue to improve the functionality and mitigate the outstanding defects, and of course, we are not planning to slow down on our engagement with our beta users as we get this last bit of functionality over the line to GA.
Again we appreciate the flexibility of all of you, our customers, as we have made this tough decision, but ultimately we would rather partner with all of you to shift our rollout plans then deliver something that doesn't delight our customers.
Head of Product, Rally Software
After continued evaluation of feedback from our beta customers and review by our engineering teams we have decided to release the new Rally UI on Thursday, December 12, 2019 for a majority of our customers. While we're excited that these customers will immediately benefit from the modern user experience and the improvements it brings, we understand that some subscriptions with high degrees of complexity will require additional time to adopt the new user experience. For those customers, the Rally team will continue to work with you on a plan for adoption to ensure that your migration to the modern Rally UI is successful for your organization.
As always, your partnership is appreciated. We remain committed to making sure that we bring all of our customers the best possible experience as we continue to move the Rally platform forward. Additional communications via in-app notifications and community posts will be forthcoming with additional information and updates.
Hi John, from Europe,
I don't recall hearing anything about our date being different from the one that was published all across the UIs. (Or was that carefully not date-specific, and I just assumed it referred to the date notified everywhere else?)
I've gone to our Subscription Administrator and he was unaware of this also.
Please can someone confirm to us when European customers should expect to have this changed applied?Many thanks,--Nev.
Hi David, @David LeDeaux.
Thankyou very much for the clarification,
I'll try to remember that distinction in future!Cheers,--Nev.
