New Board module - Interface overview

The New Board module is a Program Board which can be used to visualise and highlight new feature delivery dates, as well as, cross-team dependencies. The timeline shows important events or milestones which determine the development of solutions.

The Board module includes four main elements:

The data on the Board can be displayed, both, at the Program Increment level and at the Iteration level. Moreover, you can customise the task card using the task template creator.

The table below describes the Board's main features:
