Global personas updates
Although the workspace-wide reusable global personas went live a few weeks ago, we have already added some cool new features. Global personas are great solutions for creating a user persona that will be used on multiple story maps.
First, the persona menu is now on the main sidebar. When you want to start a persona discovery session, you can simply enter the menu and create a new persona.
To add more info to your persona card we extended its description with two additional fields: Pain and Goals. Plus, you can add, rename and rearrange fields by drag&drop—markdown formatting is supported.
Following the most powerful persona card templates, you can add a Personality section that allows you to describe personas with sliders.
To customize the persona card's structure, go to the Settings menu on the personas list page.
Pro tip: personality sliders can be used in two different ways:
you can add two labels or
you can add a single label to the slider.
workspace admins can create, update personas and manage the persona settings
workspace admins can limit editing rights (persona and settings) to admins
workspace members can create, update personas and manage the persona settings by default (editing rights can be limited by a workspace admin)
observers can view the personas in read-only mode.
This feature is available in Standard and Pro plans.
Smart idea suggestions
Wanna speed up your feedback processing? Here's the deal:
Our latest improvement will provide you with three suggestions when you link the feedback to one of your ideas. We – and the suggestions engine 🤖 – try to follow your habits and trends to offer the best options.
Suggestions become even more accurate if you use the feedback management intensively.
In addition to suggested ideas, you still have the opportunity to pick the right idea manually by choosing one from the list or finding it via search.
This feature is available in all plans.
Quickly create a roadmap from the story map
Most of our users have plenty of great story maps, so we added a shortcut to create an appealing roadmap from any of your story maps.
Click on the Roadmaps button on the top navigation bar where you can create a brand new roadmap or jump to a roadmap where the story map is linked.
After choosing the 'create new' option you'll enter the roadmap wizard that helps you to build the roadmap.
Feel free to test the new feature! Making changes on the roadmap won't mess up your story map!
Based on your requests, we added a bunch of new features to the roadmaps. Let's see what has been improved:
Need more space? Simply collapse swimlanes that are out of your scope (similarly to story map releases). Collapsed swimlanes can also be rearranged with drag&drop.
To provide a high-level overview of your roadmap, we added a zoom feature that allows you to choose from one of the three predefined card sizes. Note: Card labels are minimized on the smallest card size.
Release start/end date on the card
Start and end dates are visible when you hover over a progress bar; we added this information to the card to see start and end dates without hovering over multiple cards.
Release start/end date in the roadmap card details
This information is now available in the roadmap card details as well
Want to duplicate a well-structured roadmap? Simply hit the "…" menu in the roadmaps view and create a copy with a single click.
Archive roadmap cards
Keep your roadmap organized by archiving delivered items. Archived cards help you keep all the crucial information you already added (linked items, descriptions, attachments, comments).
