    Hi Everyone,

    We're pleased to announce the first release of the Custom List 2.0 app.  

    As the name suggests, this new app is the eventual replacement for the Custom List app and offers a Work Views experience on your dashboard or custom pages.  

    Because of this you will have the ability to include more than one item type in your result set and item hierarchies will be available within the rows themselves.

    Future releases of this app will expand the item types available and add the free-form query field so that everyone will have the ability to move to this new experience.

    Thank you all,

    Thanks!  This looks cool.  When you say it's a replacement for the existing custom list app, does that mean the existing one will go away at some point?

    Hi Sheila!

    The short answer is:  Yes - that is the plan, but not imminently.  

    One of the major themes that Rally is investing in at the moment is trying to modernize our User Interface in terms of its look and feel, usability and the technology that powers it.  As you work your way through Rally you can easily point out pages (or features) that are out of date or less streamlined than others.  The original Custom List falls into the "out of date" category and presents a lot of serious technical issues in trying to implement the changes necessary to bring it up to date. 

    However, it remains one of our most useful applications so we absolutely did not want to leave it sit knowing what it could be.  This left us with our best option being to create a new Custom List in our modern framework as a replacement.

    With regards to timing... a couple things:

    1. There are still features that must be implemented before we can even deprecate the original Custom List app.  It must support the free form query option that you can access through App Settings and it must allow for selection of all the item types that the original does

    2. When we are at a point where we have reached that parity, we intend to communicate that timeline with enough time for folks to migrate, and we will be available to help give guidance and help to anyone that needs it.  There is even the possibility for us to investigate a migration tool should it be necessary.

    Thank you for the question Sheila, I hope this has been a helpful answer.

    Hello!  Another question on Custom List 2.0. This list today will allow me to create a custom list of User IDs or Teams.  I noticed that 2.0 does not have that functionality.  Is that being added?

    Hi Sheila,

    We are targeting two major improvements to the Custom List 2.0: adding all the missing data types and adding the query text field. Can't promise when but these are something we want to see done soon. Our PI planning starts Monday of next week, by end of next week we should know whether these improvements made the cut.
