Hello! I'm Tsutomu Amino, developer of WBS Gantt-Chart for JIRA.

Leonardo DiCaprio has been awarded the Best Actor of 2016 Oscar. I would like to talk more about this, however the movie has not yet been released in Japan, so maybe some other time. Among the moves I have seen recently, "THE WALK" and "Odyssey" are the ones I like very much. In both movies, there are challenges and difficulties, the characters cope with, and overcome them, which was very touching. I'm sure this scene can apply to our daily situations at work.

Now let us explain about WBS Gantt-Chart for JIRA 8.3.0.

New UI!

We received quite a few feedback for confusing interface, so the UI will completely change! Seeing is believing. Please take a look.

Basically the UI will be all flat design. The confusing tool bars are minimized and organized. Just for the record, when "Save" was minimized, there was a discussion weather the floppy disk icon was acceptable or not since younger generations probably do not know what a floppy disk is (smile).

User Preferences in Dialog Box

Of all the inquiries from our customers, there are quite a few comments stating that they had no idea where the "user preferences" were so we made it new. First of all, we moved the features that were bottom of the top navigation bar to the operation bar.

Also, enabled the user preferences displayable in dialog boxes so that it will look more natural in WBS Gantt-Chart for JIRA.

Now I want to ask all of you: Have you noticed anything after going through all these screenshots introduced above?

"Recalculate Parents & Children", "Auto Calculate Percent done" and "Cascade Changes" of 3 items have been moved to the user preferences. Since these items are used only occasionally, we decided to put them under the user preferences rather thanthe operation toolbar.

Let's give it a try!

WBS Gantt-Chart for JIRA 8.3.0 has been released with some bug fixes. Please have a try!

Thank you and until next time!
