🔥 Widget Icons, Custom Colors, Preview Mode and more! 🔥

Today we're excited to announce the launch of a number of the most popular customer requests we've seen over the last few months!

⚡Widget Icons

It's now possible to upload your own widget icon that appears within the widget launched and replaces the default bell icon. Supported image formats include .JPG, .JPEG, .PNG and .SVG. Widget icons can be customise per project and can be configured from your Widget settings page.



🌈 Widget Colors

It's already possible to set a default app color, which applies a default color to all internal and public views. We're excited to announce that in addition to this, you can now set custom colors per widget, per project. This means if you have 5 different projects, each with a widget enabled, you can now control the style of each individual widget.

Where no widget color is selected, the widget will fallback to use the default app color.

Widget colors that are not customisable:

  • Launcher color
  • Widget header & button colors

These new colors can be configured from your Widget settings page.


👁️ Widget Preview

We've introduced a small feature that allows you to preview your widget based it's current settings allowing you to see how it would appear, without having to embed your code in order to preview. Widget preview options can be found from the Widget settings page as well as the main Updates page.


📮 Subscribe to Updates & Email Notifications

It's now also possible to allow public visitors to subscribe to your updates, either directly from your embedded widget, or from your updates public page.

When publishing a new post, you now have a new option to email subscribers and if enabled, each subscriber will receive an email notification about your post.

To compliment this feature, each Update has a new tab named 'Email history' which displays a record of emails sent for a given Update post.


Why not subscribe to our Updates feed to be kept in the loop!

Publish Features to Jira

Features can now be published to Jira when publishing or re-syncing its parent Roadmap card. 

Where the Roadmap Card has been published as an Epic, if the option to also create Features is enabled, each Feature will be created as a User Story within Jira, linked to the parent Epic.

Publishing as part of a new Roadmap Card

When selecting to publish a Roadmap Card as an Epic, you'll now get the following option to Publish its features as stories:


Re-syncing

Likewise, when re-syncing, you have another new option that controls whether features should be re-synced.


Re-syncing features will:

  • Update Features that have already been published
  • Create new User Stories for Features that have not yet been published (e.g. they have been created since the original publish to Jira)

Roadmap Cards: 🔀 Copy, Move & Duplicate

Last week we launched copying, moving and duplicating Ideas; this week we've rolled out the same functionality but for Roadmap cards 🤝

Copy Roadmap cards

Copying a roadmap card to a different project will create a replica card in the project you have selected. When copying a card, you have the following options:

  • Project to select
  • Roadmap column to select
  • Copy tags
  • Copy votes

By default, everything else, such as title, descriptions, status etc, will copy over to the new project.

Move Roadmap cards

Moving Roadmap cards between projects is now as easy as moving Ideas between projects. Each roadmap card has a new "Move to..." option from where you can select the project to move it to 🎉

Duplicate Roadmap cards

It's also now possible to duplicate cards within the same project. By selecting this option, you'll create a replica of the card, similar to when copying a card, but it will remain in the same project you're in. When duplicating a card, you will have the following options: 

  • Project to select
  • Roadmap column to select
  • Copy tags
  • Copy votes

Ideas: 🔀 Copy, Move & Duplicate

It's now possible to copy, move and duplicate ideas within Productstash 🔀 You can find these new options from the more details option on each Idea page:

Copy ideas

Copying an idea to a different project will create a replica idea in the project you have selected. When copying an idea, you will have the following options:

  • Project to select
  • Copy tags
  • Copy votes

By default, everything else, such as title, descriptions, status etc, will copy over to the new project.

Move ideas

Sometimes you've created an Idea in the wrong project, d'oh! Up until now, that's meant you've had to perform the annoying task of deleting and re-creating in the correct project. Well now you're able to easily move Ideas to different projects, in a similar manner to copying them 🎉

Duplicate ideas

It's also now possible to duplicate ideas within the same project. By selecting this option, you'll create a replica of the idea, similar to when copying an idea, but it will remain in the same project you're in. When duplicating an idea, you will have the following options: 

  • Project to select
  • Copy tags
  • Copy votes

💡➡️🛣️ Push Ideas to Roadmap

🎉 Happy new year! 🎉

And with a new year, we bring you the first of our new features we have planned this year!


Push to Roadmap

Today we've launched a highly requested feature allowing you to push Ideas directly to your Roadmaps.

Previously, the only way to move Ideas to the roadmap was to link Ideas to specific Roadmap cards. Whilst this is still possible, it's now possible to push specific Ideas and convert these into their own Roadmap cards.

New options when pushing

Each Idea now has "Push to Roadmap" button which launches the following sidebar:

From here you have various options including:

  • Specifying which column the idea should appear in
  • Specifying it's roadmap objective
  • Choose whether or not to archive the idea once converted, or if it should remain active
  • Option to copy tags
  • Option to copy the vote count
  • Option to notify followers
    • If your Idea has people following for updates, this option will notify them that the idea they're following has now progressed to the Roadmap:


Upcoming releases

Keep an eye out this week for the following new features:

  • Duplicating ideas & cards
  • Moving ideas & cards between projects
  • Copying ideas & cards between projects

Column statuses can be edited from a roadmap's settings modal.

↔️Additional columns & drag 'n' drop ordering

Each roadmap board now supports up to 6 columns and each column can easily be re-ordered a new drag and drop interface!

↕️Re-order public roadmap tabs

Custom fonts have landed! 🔤

We're excited to launch our new custom fonts feature, allowing Pro customers the option to customise the entire app (including all public views) with a custom font. This feature currently supports the top 100 most popular Google fonts. Head over to your App config settings to set your own font!


URL improvements

All URLs across the app (internal & public) have been updated as we aim to make them shorter and easier to share and read.

Public roadmaps now follow the format of app.productstash.io/<project-title>

For example, our roadmap can now be found at https://app.productstash.io/productstash

If you have a custom domain configured, the structure will follow yourdomain.com/<project-name>


Similarly public Update feeds now follow the format app.productstash.io/updates, and again, as an example ours can be found at https://app.productstash.io/productstash/updates


Comments and Features WYSIWYG


We've also rolled out our new WYSIWYG editor to Comments and Features, allowing you to add formatting, links, images and more.
