Generic automation in release Dec 27 2020

Introduction

This is a small release while preparing for the Jira Data Center launch and merging our Jira offerings into a single product line.

New features

A couple of new features are introduced in the area of external integrations and usability.

Generic automation

So far Scrumpy Poker supported only Jira Automation. As of this release, generic automation through POST HTTP webhook is available. Tools like Zapier, Slack Workflow, Microsoft Flow, etc. can be now used on events such as adding/removing stories or estimating them. Soon generic automation will be available for adding new stories to the planning list so stay tuned.

The new Generic Automation section can be found in the Integration section of the settings for each Scrumpy Poker room.

Explicitly terminate a session

Now it is possible to terminate a planning/refinement session from a button instead of waiting until all participants disconnect. Before some users left the browser window open and this lead to resumed session on the next day instead of starting a new one. Also, sometimes it is convenient to have a logical separation between to sessions in the same day for example.

Additionally, when all stories from the refinement session are over, the same hint will be displayed in the stories list section.

Bugfixing

Card 0 not shown in summary

Before when the average vote was mapped to 0 (when all participants vote with 0), the card was not displayed in the summary box. Only the value 0 was visible.

Happy voting!

All those nice features (and fixed bugs) have been completed thanks to our users – they have requested and we have implemented them. Please help Scrumpy Planning Poker become even more convenient for you by submitting a feature request/bug to our Feature Requests page or up-vote an existing feature that you find useful. Thank you!
