Happy new year! With our first release of 2022, we’re adding new options to auto sprints, improvements to the work drawer, and zoom controls for accessibility. Here’s more:

Auto Sprinting: New Options

Auto sprinting in Tara gives you one less thing to remember, while still making sure to keep your team on track. Now when a sprint cycle ends, incomplete tasks will be carried over into a separate section for quick and easy reorganization. You can choose to drag these tasks back, change their statuses, or keep them in the current sprint.

Zoom for Accessibility

Customize how you view your work with the new zoom control. The zoom lets you change how big or small the page elements appear in Tara. Adjust your workspace to be as thorough or high-level as you’d like.

Work Drawer Improvements

The Work Drawer backlog is great for creating standalone tasks that do not yet belong to a project. We’ve moved the task input into the tasks bin to make finding new backlogged tasks easier. Open the tasks bin, and any others, by clicking either the bin title or dropdown arrow.

Email Verification

For new Tara users, the onboarding process just got a bit simpler. Rather than requiring an email verification after sign-up, you will now be sent directly to the workspace setup page.

Happy New Year to the Tara AI community- we appreciate all of your ongoing support! Our new year’s resolution is to help even more teams Git Ship Done in 2022, so stay tuned for a slew of releases as we meet our goals. 🎉
