Update - 3/7/2019

The Glo in the eyes of the White Walkers is getting brighter...

New ✨

  • We have added API functionality for adding, updating, and deleting boards. It will seem like straight magicβ€”no warlocks required.

  • Glo cards can now be copied and duplicated on boards that are synced with GitHub issues. Braavos!

Improvements

  • Glo cards will now display dates with the year, if the year in question is earlier than the current year. Historical context can be as valuable as Lannister gold. This will apply to the following fields:
    • Dates on activity items.
    • Date card was created.
    • Dates on comments.
    • Dates on notifications.

Bug Fixes πŸ›

  • iPad users now have the ability to move and copy cards from a card’s dropdown menu. Just look for the three dragon eggs...
  • Battle of the Bells! The bell notification indicator is now working properly.
  • Now, when you receive an email notification, the link will direct you to the board you were invited to, not the home page. We know how important it is to have clear directions...or you could end up north of the Wall.

Update - 2/20/2019

The red comet has colored the skies above us. The eggs have hatched and we prepare for what is to come...

New ✨

  • We get it; when you’re royalty, you need to delegate, and you don’t have time for typing. Thanks to the new autocomplete dropdown feature, users can simply use shortcuts @ and # to select from a dropdown menu of assignees and labels when creating a card.

Improvements

  • Inviting the wrong house flag to the party can result in dire consequences. User Invite will only show members of your organization and members of other boards you’re part of.

  • Order can determine many things, like whether one becomes queen or not. When you wish to Move or Copy To a card, the dialog now displays the column by order on the destination board.
