October release: What’s new in Orangescrum

We have been working hard to improvise the user experiences to the Orangescrum users. Post the release of Orangescrum Community Edition last month, we have been receiving many feedbacks from our Open Source Community users. It’s been a privilege to have them in our Discussion Forum and Issue Tracker. Hats off to them for their invaluable suggestions which have been a continuous inspiration for the Orangescrum Team.

Here’s the list of new features,

  1. ‘Custom’ Task Type
  2. Change of login email address
  3. Provision for granting Admin privilege to users
  4. ‘Custom’ Task type in Dashboard
  5. Replacement of ‘Overdue’ with ‘Bug’ in the Task list tabs
  6. Improvised Image gallery to view the attached images

Custom Task Type

Task Types are the Task Categories and we understand that everybody wants to have their own Task Type/Categories. Now, you can get rid of ‘Development’, ‘Bugs’ and other default Task Types and create your own Task Type.
