Show “Related Tickets” on the Cardwall and See How to Finish a Story

Posted by Nadia Romano on May 18, 2015 10:48:59 AM

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!

What You Need to Know About BYOA (“bring your own app")

Posted by Larry Ross on Apr 21, 2015 5:08:00 PM



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. It’s one that began a decade ago when most employees worked exclusively on desktops loaded with IT-sanctioned applications from behemoth software companies such as Microsoft. Then Apple, Nokia, and Samsung opened the floodgate and the workplace was engulfed with smartphones. Workers preferred BYOD (“bring your own device”) for communication.
