Upcoming: New & Improved In-Context Collection Editors

  • 1.  Upcoming: New & Improved In-Context Collection Editors

    Posted 05-20-2020 03:21 PM

    Hello Everyone,

    I hope this message finds you well.

    I am excited to announce our new in-context collection editors.
    We have improved how you can view and edit collections like Tasks or Discussions while staying in context with your list view or board view.


    When should I expect to see this change?

    We are planning to release this change the week of May 25th, 2020. The exact date has not yet been determined.


    What collections will be impacted?

    Below is a list of all collections that will be impacted by this change:

    • Risks
    • Defects
    • Defect Suites
    • Dependencies
    • Discussions
    • Duplicates
    • Tasks
    • Test Cases
    • Risks


    What changes should I expect?

    This change enables you to view and edit collections more quickly. It should not disrupt your workflow.

    Certain collections will allow you to Edit, Link Existing, as well as Add New or Post.
    This enables you to quickly post a discussion from your Iteration Status page during standup, for example. Or you can quickly add a few new Tasks while reviewing your iteration.

    The More Options link will take you to the full-page editor collection page for the work item you are viewing.

    Just like our new full-page and quick-detail editors, the in-context collection editors will render with a dark blue header bar, indicating that you are viewing details for a specific work item.

    How do I access these editors?

    You can access the new editors by adding the collection fields to your list view or cards on your board.

    Let's walk through the example for adding Tasks to your list or board view. 

    1.  In the toolbar, select the Show Fields icon and search for Tasks in the drop-down list.
    2.  Select Tasks and click Apply
               
        Adding Tasks collection to board view

    This will add the Tasks field to your list view or card on your board. 

    • From the list, select the value in the Tasks field
    • From the card on your board, select the Tasks icon.

    This will open the following Tasks collection, in-context editor:     

    Task Collection
         Task collection in-context editor

    Task collection with Add New expanded
         Task collection in-context editor with Add New expanded


    Below are some screenshots to show other collections:

        Discussions collection in-context editor

    Dependencies in-context editor

    Defects in-context editor

    We are very excited about this change, which will be released the week of May 25th, 2020.

    Please let your users know and reach out if you have any questions.

    Best,

    Andrea & The Rally Product Team

    Hi Andrea.  Great job on these posts and providing all of the details on the features.  Will these updates eventually make it over to the "What's New in Rally" page/documentation? (http://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/agile-development-and-management/rally-platform-ca-agile-central/rally/whats-coming.html)

    I am hopeful they do, as that is a public page that all Rally users can go to access everything New UI related.

    Hello everyone,

    We addressed an issue with the new in-context editors for Discussion posts.

    When looking at discussions from a list view and clicking on the discussion collection, the Discussion in-context editor would not update as expected between work items.

    Example:

    • User click on Story A discussion collection on list view 
    • In-context editor shows discussions for Story A
    • User closes Discussion in-context editor for Story A
    • User click on Story B discussion collection list view 
    • In-context editor shows discussions for Story A (incorrect)


    We have released an update to ensure that we always render the correct discussion posts.

    Please reach out if you have any questions.

    Best,

    Andrea
