New Board module - Interface overview

Before switching from the legacy Board to the New Board, please read about the Board Migration to find out what data can be migrated, and what can't.

The New Board module is a Program Board which can be used to visualise and highlight new feature delivery dates, as well as, cross-team dependencies. The timeline shows important events or milestones which determine the development of solutions.

The Board module includes four main elements:

Just like the previous Board module it utilises the concept of an Agile Schedule, which needs to be configured first. The Agile schedule can be configured using the Program wizard or by going to Program configuration.

The data on the Board can be displayed, both, at the Program Increment level and at the Iteration level. Moreover, you can customise the task card using the task template creator.

The table below describes the Board's main features:
