Jira: Support integration experience for users who are not Jira administrators
Hello,we are now supporting a Jira-non admin Pb <> Jira integration experience. Our users can now integrate their Jira workspace with Productboard without a need to chase their Jira admin, so they can import their Jira backlogs to Productboard as soon as possible. What is new?We are introducing a new way of authorizing Pb <> Jira integration via API Token (Jira Cloud) or Personal Access Token (Jira Server + Data center).Before: You had only an option of using OAuth to authorize the integration, and for that, you needed to chase your Jira admin.After: Now you have an option of authorizing the Pb <> Jira integration via API Token (Cloud version) or Personal Access Token (Jira server & data center). You do not need any involvement of the Jira admin to integrate your Productboard with Jira. Why is it important?We removed the need to chase Jira admin to create a first Pb <> Jira integration. This saves you time so you can focus on using the integration immediat
Hello Everyone We’ve just released Insights Automation on the Enterprise plan! What is new?There’s a new Insights Automations page in Settings where admin Makers can set up automation rules for the insights board. These rules help you efficiently route and categorise feedback by enabling you to auto-assign owners and auto-tag notes based on the title, content, tags and source of the given note. The rules are applied to all new notes created after setting up a certain rule - historical notes will not be affected. The rules run against notes coming in from integrations (manually created notes are not supported at this stage). Why is it valuable?With larger volumes of feedback teams may struggle with the burden of manually routing notes to the relevant audience. Insights Automation will help you cut back on the steps involved so instead of triaging you can focus on learning from your notes.

Jira Workspaces & integration creation flow revamp
Hi, we are all excited to announce a release of the Jira Workspaces and Revamped Jira Integration Creation Flow. What’s new?We introduced a new concept of Jira Workspaces. Jira Workspace represents a connection between Productboard Space (e.g. productboard.productboard.com) and Jira Instance. (productboard.atlasian.net) Each Jira workspace has its own settings that can be accessed by clicking on the Manage button or from the Integrations detail. At the moment, we support group reauthorization in those settings. We also revamped the whole Jira Integration setup experience. Our customers can select a previous workspace and authorization to connect to. Why is it important? We removed the need to chase Jira admin to create a new integration with the existing Jira workspaces. This saves you time so you can focus on building products that matter. Easier Jira Integration management - especially for larger spaces with many projects and sometimes multiple different Jira Instances. For exam
“Display who has visited your roadmap” available for all types of roadmaps (Labs)
Hi product makers,we have now released “Display who has visited your roadmap” (e.i viewed tracker) for all types of roadmaps to Labs! 🚨 What’s new?Previously, this functionality was enabled only for timeline roadmaps. We have now enabled it for column roadmaps as well In Labs, the admin can enable this functionality for the entire workspace. The labs version will only start tracking once you turn it on - it won't show the history before the feature was enabled. On the roadmaps, click on the Viewed button on the top-right header. A modal will open and you can: see which users are actively looking at the roadmap find out which users have last seen the roadmap 💪 Why is it valuable?This functionality helps understand makers if their team / key stakeholders have seen their roadmaps and are aligned on the plan📈What’s next?We want to release the functionality to GA with some possible improvements - let us know in the comments what you think, so we can take that into account!Here is our He

Productboard < > Azure DevOps: Support Parent-Child Mapping
We just released a little pre-Christmas Gift for our Productboard <> Azure DevOps customers. We are now supporting Azure DevOps parent-child relations to work items. What is new?Our customers can now enable parent-child relations to work items. That way, they can track parent (usually epic) to child (usually feature or other work item type) relationship between Productboard and Azure DevOps.Why is it valuable?Before, you had to add these parent-child relationships manually, making it difficult to track the decomposed features and their connection to the parent (epic). With this improvement you can keep track of all the underlying children (usually subfeatures in Productboard and Features in ADO) of the parent (usually features in Productboard and epics in ADO). This will make tracking the larger body of work and its decomposed elements between Pb and ADO easier.How does it work?After you enable this functionality in their ADO integration settings, the work items or subfeatures th
Productboard < > Azure DevOps: Support ADO Areas in push
I’m excited to announce that we are now supporting Azure DevOps Areas in the Push dialog.👉What is new?Our customers can now choose an Area path to push their features or subfeatures from Productboard to Azure DevOps.‼️ The area field will ONLY show up if customers have set up more than one area in their ADO Project (If there is only one default area, we will not show the area field in the push dialog.)🤔Why is it valuable?The area field will allow Product Managers to select the right domain and team backlog to push the Pb feature or subfeature to so:PMs can distribute the work efficiently to the right backlog and domain PMs can focus on planning the delivery rather than unnecessary manual work The delivery teams can immediately see the prioritized features and subfeatures in their ADO domain backlog rather than searching for them from a massive list of unrelated features.📚Learn moreAvailable on all plans Help article
Insights filtering improvements for tags & keywords
Hello Everyone We’ve just released more powerful filtering for tags and keywords on insights board! What is new?When applying filters for tags on the insights board, you can now choose between three different Boolean logical operators: Any of the selected (OR logic) All of the selected (AND logic) None of the selected (NOT logic). When applying filters based on keywords in the note title or content, you can choose between OR logic (Contains any of these) and AND logic (Contains all of these). In addition, there’s an option to exclude a list of keywords as well (Contains none of these). Applying filters from the tag cloud is now disabled. You will still be able to see the count of tags for your currently viewed notes, but you won’t be able to click on them. Why is it valuable?By utilizing OR logic, you can create collections around broader topics and product areas (e.g. ‘Mobile platform’). These collections can help to make the triaging and processing of notes more efficient (e.g.

We have added support of Feature Timeframe (READ, UPDATE, Notifications (Webhooks) on our Features APIs We are now supporting Jira IDs in our APIs. Our customers are now able to augment the flagship Pb <> Jira integration via our APIs.What are the common use cases we see solved by these API improvements?

Smart feature suggestions
Hi Everyone! 👋 I’m excited to announce that smart feature suggestions has just been released on the Scale and Enterprise plans.👉 What's new?When you highlight an insight within a note, the linking popup now provides two different kinds of suggestions. Recent items showing the features, sub-features or components that you recently linked insights to. Related items showing features, sub-features or components that are predicted as relevant to the given note. This is based on the results of natural language processing and machine learning performed on your organisation’s previously processed and linked notes. 📈 Why is it valuable?By utilising smart suggestions, you can avoid having to manually search across the entire hierarchy all the time; and you can find the relevant features quicker. This can result in a more efficient processing flow for your team, which also improves over time: the more links are made between notes and features, the better the suggestions will become.📚
