During this spooky season 👻 we have some terrific news to share with you. Check out the latest developments and enhancements, mainly concerning the new navigation sidebar, in the release note of Tuleap 15.1 hereunder.

Promoted Trackers & Kanban in Sidebar

Tuleap sidebar is one of the key components in the application navigation and it had one problem: it was too technical. The wording used in the sidebar was targeted toward people that were already used to Tuleap.

The best example is « Trackers », if you are used to Tuleap you know what it is and you mostly know what you will find there. But if it’s your first landing, you have no clue of what this thing is.

With the ability to promote Trackers and Kanban, users will see terms of their own business instead of name of the tools.

Let’s take an example with « Issue Tracker » project template.

The « Issues » term is now visible directly at project creation and, even better, when you hover the « Issues » name, there is a small + that directly points to new issue creation.

The same principle applies for Kanban. Even if, most of the time, the Kanban term is more widely known than Tracker, it is still beneficial to have it in sidebar but for a different reason. In case of Kanban, the added value is to have, wherever you are in the project, access to most important actions in your project. In the following example, the project decided to promote their user story kanban to make it easily reachable.

Last but not least, with all those changes in the sidebar we decided to remove the possibility to collapse the sidebar. As we can now have sub elements (issues tracker, user stories or epics kanban, etc) that don’t have a known icon associated to them, a collapsed sidebar is more confusing as users won’t know where the are going to land on a click.
