Release Setup allows administrators to customize the way Releases are handled in Plutora.

A checkbox’s name has been changed.
Release Setup was previously called Enterprise Release Setup.

Customize Release Setup

To customize Release Setup:

  1. Go to Settings > Customization > Releases.
  2. Click Release Setup.
  3. Click to select one or more of the following checkboxes:
    1. Enable Enterprise Activities Child Push Functionality: Puts child Push buttons onto Enterprise Releases, allowing the Enterprise Release’s Activities and Criteria to be pushed to the child Releases.
      1. Release Dependency Association: Locks the Activities and Criteria that have been pushed to child Releases so that ID, Title, Description, Type and Assigned to Phase/Gate can only be edited from the Enterprise Release.
        The Enable Child Releases to inherit Parent Release Data checkbox has been removed and replaced by the new Phases/Gate Migration pop up in Project and Independent Releases
    2. Enable Actual Completed Data (Overrides Due Date):

      1. Makes the Actual Time Completed field in View/Edit Activity pop up editable if:
        • A Completed Status is selected.
        • For example, Completed in the screenshot. See Release Status Customization for more information about Release Status end states.
      2. Allows Actual Time Completed column in Release Activities to override the date and time in the End column.
        1. Calculate Release Traffic Lights:
          1. Allows Actual Time Completed column in Release Activities to override the End Date and time for Traffic Lights.
          2. When selected, Phases or Gates that have Activities that have an Actual Time Completed that is on time will have a green traffic light.
          3. See more about Traffic Lights and what their colors mean.
            *NEW* Checkbox name changed.
    3. Copy Activities and Criteria dates when changing Phase and Gate dates via the Release window or the Release Bulk Update window: When Phases or Gate dates are updated, the corresponding dates of their Activities and Criteria will be shifted to the new Phase and Gate dates.
      Previously, this checkbox was called Update and move Activities/Criteria dates when changing Phases/Gates dates via Release window or via Release Bulk Update window but was changed to make the meaning clearer.
