Going through and updating status of closed ideas according to our new way of working. New process works as follows:

1. When you post a new idea that we consider valid, we will label it 'Open to vote for', so that it can be shared with other users and start gathering votes
2. Ideas that are support-related, already exist in some manner or non-implemented ideas that are older than a year and that have not gathered enough votes will be Archived.
3. We keep some older ideas that we think are in line with something we are planning otherwise or that have gathered enough votes.
4. If there are duplication of ideas, we may archive one of them and keep another which can continue to gather votes.
5. Ideas that we are planning to implement will be moved into the category 'Accepted'

Hi Karolina,
Thank you for your tips :)
We have consider these two options already, and we are not so happy to use them.
Option 1 will give us more maintenance/work to update plan with sub-activities with no value for us, every time we move a card to another board.
Option 2 will give us a board with a lot of cards. Not so visual any more. Today we also use a board per Sprint, to see the history (what was done in the Sprint).
We think the best option for some of our projects will be to disconnect cards from activity. And then not use the functionality of plan/activity
We will try the new release for test projects first and see how this release will work with different options, before we move our running project to this new release.

Another question: Recent activity for this idea says 4 votes, but the number in the vote window says 1?

Hi Tom,

Since your comment was made anonymously it was stuck in moderation for a while.

I agree that you will have more sub-activities with option 1 but it will also be more visible which cards are done in which sprint. I think you'll find that it will be much easier to move cards between activities in the plan in the new interface.

With option 2 you should not get any more cards on the board. When an activity is marked as done, all its connected cards will be transferred off the board and just live on the activity in the plan. This means that only ongoing activities and their cards will be visible on the board.

Best regards,
Karolina

oh - and about the votes - there can be both positive and negative votes and people are allowed to change their mind. This means that the number of votes and the score can be different.

Toms idea just got my vote!
I really hope this can be solved and I also know many companies (I have written a disseration about Lean development) using kanban boards in a way that the new version does not support.

I second this, we have multiple consultants working in the same project. We can't have one board for each activity. It would be a mess. Thankfully we never used this feature before but we were planning on connecting cards to activities in new projects. Now we will not be able to use this feature of connections at all.

The mandatory 1:1 relationship between activities and boards is a huge step backwards. We have boards for each function, and activities that involve all functions. What has been the thinking around this restriction? Could you please consider for the next release to allow for a 1:many relationship again?

I'm not sure what "anonymous" above means by 1:1 activity to boards?

Several activities can be connected to the same board.

If an activity is made to represent a sprint, the same board can in fact contain all the sprints necessary.

Also, when a sprint (activity) is marked as Done, all of te associated cards are hidden from the board, unless moved to another sprint (activity).
