Although the holiday season is taking a toll on our team (sunny skies outside and the proximity of the beach seem to have something to do with this...) we're always cooking comething in our Spartez lab.
Probably deserving the highest praise in this regard are Quick Notes, formerly known as “kwik!”. Having recently gone a thorough makeover in terms of general appearance and functionalities, followed by a series of new releases with significant bugfixes, this clever little plugin is now improved and perfect for taking notes while browsing Confluence pages, just as you would use Post-It for annotating the content of a physical piece of paper.
Quick Notes can be created in a number of ways, whichever the user finds most convenient. They support Wiki Markup, so that their content will always be clear and look professional.
If you want to notify someone using your Quick Note, just type'@' followed by their username into the note's content and this user will receive an automatic e-mail notification from you.
If a Quick Note overlaps a piece of the text that you are reading, just click on the 'x' button in the top right corner of the note to dismiss it. To reopen the note click on the highlighted text which it refers to.
Agile Cards have also made it to the new release delivery box. The series of recent usability improvements and bugfixes includes a few changes regarding the card templates. The cards’ print settings have been moved to templates; print templates can now be selected when printing from JIRA Agile boards. Also, templates are no longer linked to individual projects and are now sorted alphabetically in the "Select template" screen.
Coming up soon is a new release of TFS4JIRA with lots of new synchronization features.
In the meantime we’re slipping on our geeky flip-flops on, grabbing a handful of wifi and making our way over to the beach to continue summer’s developments… See you in the sun!
