If you currently use the "Cardwall" feature of the Assembla tickets tool (and who doesn't), this post is for you.
The cardwall offers a comprehensive view of current work for a team. It displays one task per card, however it does not show everything that that is required to complete a Story or Epic. When managing a Story or Epic, you need to be able to easily check progress on the related tickets: child stories or subtasks. This was not possible in Assembla -- until today!
Assembla's new Dropbox Connector allows you to share Dropbox folders with team members. The connector will replicate files into an Assembla space. You will see file change events in the Stream, and all team members will be able to see and review the files.
If you are managing a project or many projects, there are 3 Assembla features that will make your life easier and more productive. And, the added bonus here is that they are also simple to learn.
BYOA (“bring your own app”) is the next phase in the digital revolution, as more employees and contractors are opting out of using “corporate“ software and opting in for better designed, easier to use, and less expensive apps for file sharing, collaboration, and email marketing.
BYOA has its roots in another revolution.

Then Apple, Nokia, and Samsung opened the floodgate and the workplace was engulfed with smartphones. Workers preferred BYOD (“bring your own device”) for communication. No longer shackled to their desktop, the revolution seemed complete — except for some nasty little issues about security and integration.
Assembla's Support tool helps you manage client projects by providing an easy mechanism for your customers to collaborate with you. The Support tool integrates with the Ticket tool to provide customers a support ticket system for submitting and following issues, bugs, and feature requests. In this blog post you will learn:
Dependencies become important in a big software project.
A dependency occurs when one person is waiting for another person to finish something. In my series on vanquishing the Mythical Man Month, I argued that this is the single biggest reason why big teams are slower (per person) than small teams. One person is never waiting for himself, but in a large project, there can be LOTS of people waiting for something.
