Version 17.1

17.1.1 Release Notes: Bugfixes

Hosted Release: May 20th, 2017

17.1.1 New

  • Standup renamed to Daily Scrum.

17.1.1 Improvements

  • Inactive projects and releases are now visually marked in the Organize Panel.
  • In card view, you may hover over the parent icon on a subitem card to get the Parent ID.
  • Subitems pane/tab in the Details Panel now has right-click options for removing the subitem from the parent. It's as though the child has grown up and gone to college.
  • We made the ellipsis menu available in the Detail panes even if they are collapsed. This way you can reorder them without having to expand them.
  • When editing a workflow step, you will always see the name of that step at the top. It'll help you get your bearings.

17.1.1 Fixed

We really appreciate your help finding these defects. Here is what we managed to squash this round:

  • Duplicate items will no longer be created if an email that was used to create an item receives a new reply.
  • Dragging items into a release sometimes did not assign all the items to that release if the items had parents/children in different releases. This has been fixed!
  • Item cards were staying in the section they were dragged to if the user selected “No” in the confirmation prompt. They should now return as expected.
  • In Rank View, items were not refreshing when assigned to another project or release. They should now disappear as expected.
  • Fixed Requested By field mapping not working when importing items.
  • Fixed the inability to edit item relations. (Thanks Pôle!)
  • Inactive releases will now be included in the releases pane search results when a user has “Show Inactive Releases” setting turned on.
  • Fixed false Permission Denied error when trying to archive items.
  • There is so no longer a scrambled error message on Portal when a contact tries to upload an attachment above the allowed file size limit.
  • If you have a legacy filter with Archived filter conditions, you may now edit the archive filter conditions.
  • X button in the Wiki tab will now clear out the search filter.
  • Fixed filters sometimes not appearing in the filter bar in Wiki tabs.
  • Filters with long names will be shortened and no longer wrap to the second line and get cut off.
  • If you had long text in the “hours complete” of an item card, it would push the assignee image off the card. We agree it looked terrible so we squashed the UI bug in this release.
  • Pasting text copied from Microsoft Word into large text fields will retain more formatting than before.
  • Fixed the inability to change a user’s capacity settings in Internet Explorer 11. If you ever wish to break up with IE, we hear Google Chrome and Firefox are just terrific.
  • Opened field dropdown menus in Add/Edit item no longer stay on the screen when you scroll away.
  • Portal no longer shows whether the Assigned To user is inactive or not.


  • Fixed API calls made using a capital ‘v’ for the version number (ex: /api/V6/)
  • The /{item_type}/{id}/check_wip_limit is now a public API call.

17.1 Release Notes

17.1 New

  • Ever get that feeling of déjà vu? When creating new items, you'll now see existing similar or duplicate items populate in a fuzzy-finder-style action, just in case you or someone else has done this before.
  • In a highly-requested feature, you can now rename your email accounts! This makes identifying accounts much easier and is a major quality of life improvment in the app.
  • You can now see the size of your attachments thanks to a new Attachment Size column in the Attachments detail tab.
  • Get rid of those pesky auto-reply emails with the new "Auto Reply" column in the emails tab. This column is quick-filterable which, surprisingly, allows you to filter out these emails, quickly.
  • Exporting items now give the option to include an item's Parent Item.

17.1 Improved

  • To improve burndown and velocity calculations, Axosoft now uses changes in work remaining instead of strictly using work logs. Learn more here.
  • In a major existential improvement, the current user is now always at the top of the Assigned To field dropdown. No more self-searching!
  • Updating attachments, comments, or emails will now update the item’s Last Modified date. Seems only fair.
  • In some parts of the UI, custom tooltips have been implemented for consistency between browsers, instead of using the browser defaults.
  • Detail panes can now be reordered. Go to the right panel and select whether to move a panel up or down from the ellipsis drop-down menu. Or, drag and drop tabs if in the bottom panel.
  • Expand/collapse this/all groups have been added as right-click options to group headers, for speedier selection
  • Portal users can now sort by rank.
  • In date picker, you can now select days that are beyond the currently-viewed month.
  • Inactive users in user fields are now labeled as inactive, because that's what they are.
  • Estimate info in cards is now shown as work done / total work. Thanks for the UI feedback on that one!
  • Users can specify the time unit of their capacity settings in User Options
  • The name of the selected tab now magically makes its way to your browser title bar as a reference and for a feeling of all-round completeness.

17.1 Fixed

  • Ranking items is now much faster than before.
  • Axosoft learned a bad trick where it would duplicate workflow groupings when grouping by workflow. A visit to QA‘s corner wall fixed the bad behavior.
  • You can no longer add a relation between the same two items multiple times.
  • Turns out that the Enforce workflow step selection for items setting did precisely the opposite, not actually enforcing the selection. You had one job.
  • When an item is moved from one item type to another, the Changed By and Created By fields now update to the user who moved that item.
  • Workflows being used by a project can no longer be deactivated.
  • See that last one? The reverse is also true. Projects can no longer be set to use an inactive workflow.
  • If an item's project didn't have a default template set, things would get screwy with the notification preview and email content. This is now fixed.
  • Selecting a whole bunch of items no longer pushes the save button in the Add Related Items popup offscreen.
  • The Wiki Page History detail pane is now consistent whether it’s on the right panel or bottom panel, so you'll see all of the options you've come to love, regardless of the pane's location.
  • Changing an item’s Project will no longer cause the Project value to change a second time (because the new workflow step was telling it to).
  • Comment textareas' content would turn into raw html if the item’s Workstep step was changed before the comment was submitted. Gross! Fixed.
  • Sometimes, after editing a subitem, the item grid was not refreshing. As of today, that bug is but a distant memory.
  • Manage Workflows and Manage Field Templates pages in macOS Safari were rendering in avant garde mode. This has been fixed to a more mainstream, consistent layout.
  • On occasion, when lots of tabs were open, the left/right arrows would disappear. No more hookie for you, arrows!
  • You can now edit an active Release of an item even if one of its ancestors is inactive.
  • Deleting a contact tied to a workflow step notification was rendering that workflow step uneditable. Workflow steps can now be edited as usual.
  • If an item is moved to the completed step, then moved into another step prior to the completion step, the Completion Date is cleared out.
  • Fields in the Email Accounts default values section are now listed alphabetically.
  • Fixed an issue where you couldn't save the redirect setting in Portal Settings Embedded Portal
  • The Category list dropdown wasn't showing any options in Portal, and this has been fixed.
  • Notification conditions for checkbox fields now display True/False instead of NONE
  • (Installed): Searching the projects panel doesn’t get stuck “searching…” anymore.


  • v1 is no longer supported.
  • New: /item_relations/{item_type}/{item_id} returns a list of item relations for the given item.
