| 1 Comment

We are glad to announce you a major release of PivotalBooster version 1.1.0.beta.
With its new and enhanced features, working with your projects, tasks and stories will become even more convenient and flexible. For example, now it is much easier to create a new story or update an existing one in our absolutely new story detail view. Plus, the new drag-and-drop attachment feature provides you with a faster way of adding attachments. And, if you are managing several projects at once, the new filtering by the project feature is just right for you. That’s not all that new PivotalBooster has to offer to you.

What’s new

More Ways to Login

Now you can login to PivotalBooster with your email or username plus password or just with your API token.

Creating New Story With a Single Button

There is no way faster to create a new story. You just need to click the “New Story” button or use shortcut ⌘+N. As a result, the editing form is open for you with pre-field controls ready for use.

Updating Story Details

Now you have full control on the story content. Simply edit your story and press ⌘+S to save changes to the service.

Managing Tasks

Switch to the “Tasks” tab and all the tasks of a single story will be shown. You can add new task, edit or remove old items, as well as change the order of tasks in the list.

Enhanced Commenting

Switch to the “Comments” tab and all the comments of the story will be fetched and displayed for you. You can now easily add new or remove old comments.

Projects Filtering

Managing your multiple projects is now much more convenient with new filtering by projects feature and improvements brought to the smart filtering system. You can now easily switch between projects, and your filter will be applied to the stories list and all new stories will be created in the active project.

Switching Stories Mode

The new story mode indicator and switcher allows you to easily switch between available modes.

Attachments Drag-and-drop

Just drag and drop single or multiple files to the special area and attachments will be immediately stored on the service.

Additional Improvements

Moreover, we’ve significantly improved cache-cleaning process, made autosync even smarter, speed up views rendering, and more. All these make work with PivotalBooster smooth and comfortable.

    As soon as I discovered PivotalBooster, I started to depend on it!  For my work, it’s frequently important to look across open tasks from more than one, and occasionally on all, projects.  Seeing all stories from all projects on one screen thanks to has been amazing – is there anyway to do that with all tasks too?  Thanks!
