        Wow, that's a lot of great stuff!  Can't wait to see it next week!

        While you're updating Saved and Shared Views, we'd love to see them optionally 'cascade' to child projects when sharing like the Work Item Templates do.  :)

        Have a great weekend!

        Hello everyone,

        [List View] Inline edit of a rich text field
        • Example: Notes, Description

        This change is rolling out right now and if all goes well you should be able to inline-edit rich text fields in the next couple of hours.
        You might need a hard browser refresh to get these changes.

        Please reach out if you have any questions.

        Thanks,

        Andrea

        We LOVE the saved/shared view updates!

        The one big improvement would be the ability to 'cascase' a view to child projects, the way you can share a page or a template with child projects.  That would be HUGE!!!
