General features

Focus on direct dependencies by highlighting elements directly linked to your cards & notes 

Navigating through numerous elements and their interconnections on your board, especially during a PI (Program Increment) planning with many cards, can be challenging. We understand the importance of swiftly locating a specific card during meetings. To address this, we’ve introduced a new functionality that allows you to focus on a particular card or note, and simultaneously identify any linked elements.

Whether you’re working on a project plan, creating a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), or reviewing a mindmap, this new feature aims to streamline the process of identifying dependencies between board elements. This evolution will enable you to identify the crtical path in a planning board, offering a comprehensive view of interdependencies.

There are plenty of areas of applications for this new feature, we listed below just a few examples : 

  • Use it to visualize all dependencies linked to a feature on a Program Board, whether linked to Jira or Azure Devops. 

  • Identify the impact of ongoing initiatives on your OKR boards.  

  • Identify synergies between various stakeholders of a new project you want to launch. 

  • Validate the delivery of a Feature by visualizing the status of required User Stories on a team board. 

Interactive web content 

Since iObeya 4.19, 35% of iObeya Cloud customers have adopted our web content feature to display their online external content directly on their iObeya boards. It has been six months now since the roll-out of this feature, and among others there has been one improvement that has been asked for by all our web content users which is to be able to interact with external content within iObeya. 

With the roll-out of iObeya 4.25, we are thrilled to announce that this wish has now become a reality! At the bottom of your web content element, you will find a bar with a switch to toggle on/off the interactive mode. You can also double click click on a web content to start interacting with it. A bit of a change here, earlier if you double clicked on the element, it opened your content in a new tab. You can still open the external content in a new tab via the contextual menu. If the interact mode is on, this contextual menu can be opened by clicking on the bottom bar at any time. 

Another precision, while the interactive mode is activated, if you click anywhere else in iObeya the interactive mode will automatically switch off, to ensure an intuitive user experience in iObeya and to avoid interaction conflicts that you might face when using iObeya tools and interacting with web content at the same time. 

Enhanced Login Experience and new Home Page Design 

Dear iObeya users, we’re pleased to inform you that a new and improved homepage awaits you, providing a seamless experience upon entering the iObeya platform.

Upon logging in, you’ll discover a refined homepage featuring an array of convenient links curated to enhance your journey with iObeya. Explore the iObeya Academy, quickly access the online documentation, and start collaborating in a virtual iObeya room or a whiteboarding session in a minute.  

Additionally, recent panels you’ve accessed remain conveniently located just above these useful links, ensuring you can effortlessly resume into your boards. 

In the upcoming versions, we will introduce product tours and hints to guide first-time users and help you discover new features when they are activated.   

Performance Management

Reminder ☝

These are add-ons that need to be installed and activated on your iObeya platform. If you can’t find them, you need to request to your platform administrator to activate QCD.

Pareto Chart improvements 

We are progressively bringing improvements to our Pareto Feature introduced in the previous version of iObeya For this month, we have concentrated mainly on improving the usability of this feature. 

Notably we have added two improvements  

  •  An update indicator on the Pareto chart notifying when you may need to update the graph to take into account new data. For instance, every time there is a new action added to your board, this indicator will appear on your Pareto chart. You can click on this indicator or use the contextual menu to update the graph whenever you want. 
  • We have added the notion of thresholds to the Pareto chart. You can now define QCD action thresholds that will add colored background (green, orange, red) to the Pareto chart. The idea is to give you a clearer picture of the number of actions you have on your board so that you can manage them efficiently when they exceed the thresholds you defined accordingly.
