Customise your Project workflow

We’re excited to announce you can now add, edit, reorder and delete columns on your Project board(s)!

This is by far the most requested improvement we’ve received, so we’re very happy to be able to deliver this to all of you who have waited so patiently.

We are progressively rolling out this feature, so if you can't see it yet, just email us on support@bugherd.com and we'll hook you up.

How it works:

It’s pretty simple really…

  • Add columns by clicking on the “+” icon to the right of the column headings or via the “…” menu.
  • Edit a column name by clicking on it.
  • Drag & drop to re-order columns.
  • Delete a column, from the “…” menu.

So give it a try and let us know what you think.

Some important things to note:

  • Only Members & Managers can modify a project’s columns.
  • If you use Zapier to send/receive data to/from other tools you use, keep in mind that if you change the name of your columns, you might need to update your Zaps too.
  • Similarly, if you use our API or Webhooks, there are some very small changes you need to make to your integration before April 30th. For more information, check out our API docs here.

Thanks again for your feedback, we really appreciate it and of course if you have any questions, let us know on support@bugherd.com.

Cheers,

The BugHerd Team

Microsoft Edge extension now available!

Great news for all you Microsoft fans out there. The BugHerd Browser Extension is now available for Microsoft Edge! Check it out in the Microsoft Edge Addons store.

Same great features, different browser.

We hope this will make using BugHerd even easier for you and your clients. As always, if you’ve got any feedback please do let us know via the comment box below or contacting support@bugherd.com.

Please note: you’ll need Microsoft Edge version 79 or newer, available here.

PS. We know a Safari browser extension is really needed too, it’s just a little more tricky to deliver. Stick with us though, it will come. Promise. :)

Important changes to the BugHerd API

As you may know, we’ll soon be releasing our custom columns feature which will bring the ability to customise the columns that appear on your project Kanban board. Unfortunately, delivering this feature will involve a breaking change to our API v2.

If you are a user of our API & Webhooks, please contact us via commenting below so that we can delay enabling Custom Columns on your account until you’re ready.

Please note: we need to upgrade all accounts, by 30th April. We understand that this is an inconvenience so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have questions. We’re here to help in any way we can.

So what’s changed?

  • The status field is now the primary way to identify the status of a Task (e.g. which column the task is in). This will now be a case insensitive string, representing the name of the status that the Task is in.
  • The status_id field on a task has been deprecated. It’s value now indicates the Global ID of the column a task is in, with a few special exceptions. A value of null still indicates a task is in 'Feedback' and a value of 5 still indicates a task is 'Closed/Archived'.
  • Once custom columns are enabled on your account, if a column name is changed on a project, this will be reflected in the status that is returned from the API. Note, any member on a project can modify the column names, just like Trello.

Please refer to our updated API documentation for more detailed information.

What you need to do:

  • Contact us so we can delay enabling the Custom Columns feature for your organisation until you’re ready.
  • If you use status_id to identify the status of a task, you need to update your integration to use the status field. Please refer to our API docs for more information.
  • Contact us when you’ve updated your integration so we can enable the Custom Columns feature on your account.

What if I don’t update my integration?

We will need to upgrade all accounts, including yours, by 30th April. If you’re using status_id to identify a Task’s status, your integration will no longer work after this date.

Of course, if you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us on support@bugherd.com or comment below. We’re here to help in any way we can. :)

A small update...

Does something about the Kanban board feel a bit different today?

As you may have noticed, the columns on the Kanban board are now a fixed width in preparation for the release of our new "Custom Columns" feature. 🎉

While it's a small visual difference there's actually a whole bunch of changes we've made under the hood with this update.

If you have any issues, or something isn't working quite right for you, please let us know by commenting below or emailing us on support@bugherd.com.

Cheers,

The BugHerd Team.

Drag & Drop uploads, a few other updates, and what’s coming next.

Today we’ve released some small improvements to the Task Details view, we hope you like them.

At a glance, these updates include;

  • Drag & drop file uploading 🎉
  • Fixed weirdness when assigning people to a Task
  • Better interaction for tagging
  • New date picker UI

What's coming next?

Sorry that things have been a bit quiet in terms of feature releases lately.

Our entire team are super busy working on adding a BIG new feature, “Custom columns”.😲

This will mean you can finally add/remove/rename columns on your Kanban board. This is by far the most requested feature from you all and a huge piece of work, but we’re super excited to be finally able to deliver it for you.

Custom columns will be coming early in the new year so stay tuned!

Also, if you’d like to help beta test custom columns prior to release, please reply to this message and we’ll contact you in the new year.

Thanks again for being fantastic people, and happy holidays!🎄🍸

Cheers, The BugHerd Team
