In Draft or Final Plan Readout, you can review the key planning outputs (PI Objectives, capacity and load, risks) easily in a new dedicated space. It offers quick access and aids in the tight timebox. Moreover it allows Business Owners to assign Business Value for Objectives.
Experience enhanced objective management with the option to toggle full descriptions on or off, providing a cleaner view. Additionally, expand associated sticky notes for a structured, organized overview. Easily monitor Objective status by referencing linked sticky note statuses.
Now you can keep highlighting the sticky notes that are linked together by pinning them. This function will keep the visual representation of the strings between the sticky notes for as long as you need it. When you're done, simply click on the pin or press escape to remove it.
Within this new role, known as the PI Admin, individuals are granted access to the RTE Cockpit. They assume the responsibility of managing teams within their ART and Solution Trains, including the ability to add new team members. Moreover, they are entrusted with overseeing PI sessions in which they are actively involved as part of their Teams.
We have made an update that limits the character count for objective titles to 130 characters, providing more concise and focused titles. There is no limit to the description length, allowing users to provide more detailed information about the objective.
The ART PI Objectives are now separated into two sides, ART PI Objectives and Team Objectives. This provides better visibility and transparency to the Team Objectives that are aligned with achieving the ART Objectives. With both objectives displayed side by side, it is easy to track progress and see how Team Objectives contribute to the overall ART Objectives.
You can easily access and scale up the important sticky notes directly from the search results. Simply click on a sticky note in the search results and the corresponding note on the board will instantly scale up, providing a clearer and more detailed view.
The new design is more user-friendly and visually appealing, displaying important information such as the iteration start and end dates, capacity and load, access to team metrics along with the progress status of the iteration in a clear and concise manner.
You can now view Program Metrics accessing from the Program Board located on the top left menu. This feature enables you to monitor and track of your whole PI, including Capacity Allocation and Load Vs. Capacity status. This new capability offers more transparency and visibility into the whole Program's status making it easier to identify potential issues and take corrective action.
You can easily track the status of your program and identify any potential issues that need to be addressed. By clicking on “Progress” on the top left menu, the progress bar will appear by Iterations and Teams. By hovering over the bar you can get more detailed information on their progress and identify areas that may need additional attention.
This new filter allows you to easily track the dependencies between different teams. This filter allows you to identify incoming, outgoing and mutual dependencies. The filter provides a clear and easy-to-understand visual overview of all dependencies that makes it easier for the team to plan and coordinate their work, ensuring that everyone is aware of any dependencies.
This feature makes it easy to stay up-to-date with the status of dependencies and ensures that everyone is aware of any potential delays or roadblocks. To access it, simply click on the "Progress" button in the top left corner of the board. A progress bar appears at the bottom of the dependency sticky note, indicating the completion status of any related tasks. By hovering over the progress bar, you can see more details.

With this feature, you can easily search for specific sticky notes associated with a particular iteration. This makes it easier to keep track of tasks and see what is in progress or has yet to start. This makes it easy to identify potential backlog areas in your team.
When you want to link a sticky note to an item and you click on "Link" on the sticky notes, you can search now among the linkable items. In the search bar, start typing the word you are looking for to filter the list. To make the items appear even neater, the sticky notes and Objectives are placed on two separate tabs.
A handy solution is to link sticky notes to Team Objectives that help to achieve the specific Objective. Instead of linking each sticky note to the Objectives one by one, you can do it all at once thanks to the multiple sticky note selection function. Then click on the Objective to see the associated notes highlighted.
Select multiple sticky notes and take action on them at a time. It is a great help when you're working with tons of sticky notes, right? As soon as more than one sticky is selected you can move them to another position, align them vertically or horizontally, or link them to sticky notes or team objectives. Brilliant, isn’t it?
If you want to talk through certain sticky notes, be specific by sending your team members which sticky notes you are talking about. You can do this simply. For instance filter out sticky notes with a pending status that belongs to your Scrum Master. Copy the link of the search result from the URL bar and send it to the Scrum Master. Now he/she can see the exact sticky note you want to point to.
Lately, we added additional tools to help you to troubleshoot ALM connectivity issues. This allows you to narrow down the problem with your stuck Jira or ADO sync faster than ever before. We highlight connection issues for each PI Planning session and provide a detailed log for each ALM connection.
Sticky notes can have different functions in PI Planning. Therefore, in piplanning.io they have properties corresponding to the function. From now on, sticky notes with a work item function can also indicate the status of the task, which can be: to do, in progress, or done. In the case of those with note functions, we can make simple notes without unnecessary functions.
The built-in timer helps you with timeboxing. You can configure it for the whole ART that will be visible on all boards. Or you can also set an individual timer for a specific Team Board. You can always see what time is still left. Pause or reset if it's needed. When the time is up, the alarm will sound for those to whom it is addressed.
piplanning.io now allows you to force login via SSO only and prevent the usage of username and password for your users. This allows for secure, centralized and easy user access management. To do so you can check the box 'Prevent credential login / SSO only' on the IDP setup page.
In this newly available report, you can get feedback on the load of the iterations to see the status of your planning. The color of the bar helps you get a quick overview: blue indicates that the load is fine, orange is a warning and red is an overload. To do this, click on the pie chart in the upper right corner of any iteration and select the Load vs. Capacity tab.
You can now see on the Program Board and Team Board the risky links where the dependency is planned to be delivered in the same iteration or a later one than the feature. A notification will appear in the bottom right corner and disappears as soon as the risky link is resolved.
The color palette of sticky notes appears when you click the "Add new" button on the bar and hides when you click it again. Drag and drop the sticky note to the board. Pressing the color pops up the sticky note in the center of the board. The last chosen color won’t be set up as default anymore.
To search on the board for stickers use control + F as a shortcut on your keyboard. For filtering the boards for teams use control + T. If you want to filter for a specific sticky type press control + Y. Be aware: Depending on your system instead of “control” the shortcuts might only work with “option” or “command”.
You can now set your own preferred order for the teams on the Program Board. Just arrange them the way you want. This can help you to optimize the dependency visualization as you can place teams that have many dependencies to other teams in the center of the board.
