Plutora Feature Release Notes for Mid July 2022

New Features

Release Activities Email Notification Enhancements

The following enhancements are done in the ‘Release Activities’ email entity (Settings > Customization > Email Notification > Email Template Wizard Customization). For more details, see Email Template Wizard Customization.

New Checkbox Added for ‘Due date approaching’

For the ‘Due date approaching’ trigger in the ‘Release Activities’ entity, a new checkbox ‘Send email notification only when existing activity dependencies have been satisfied‘ is added. This checkbox enables the administrators to set the email trigger in such a way that the email notification regarding the due date approach is sent only if all the existing dependencies of the Activity/Criterion are resolved and it is ready to progress to the next status.

Updates in [[Update_via_Secure_URL]] Field

For any of the triggers in the ‘Release Activities’ entity, if you have added [[Update_via_Secure_URL]] field in the template, and if your Activity/Criterion has an unresolved dependency, then the email notification that you receive will only have Not Started and N/A options. This ensures that you resolve the dependency before changing the status of the Activity/Criterion.

Clicking the secure link navigates you to the ‘View/Edit Activity’ pop-up. On this pop-up, the Status¬†field displays only the applicable options i.e. Not Started and N/A.

New Field [[Dependent_Activities]] Added

A new entity field [[Dependent_Activities]] has been added to the email template for all the triggers in the ‘Release Activities’ entity. This field provides you with information on the dependent Activities/Criteria that block your Activity/Criterion.

Adding this field in the template retrieves all the dependent Activities/Criteria and displays them in the form of a list in the email notification. You can access these Activities/Criteria by clicking the respective hyperlink.

New Trigger ‘Dependencies resolved’ Added

Now, to the ‘Release Activities’ entity a new email trigger Dependencies resolved is added. This trigger sends an email notification to the selected recipients once the last dependency to the Activity/Criterion is resolved.

Email Notification to Release Owner

Now, for all the triggers under ‘Release’, ‘Release Activities’, and ‘Phase/Gate’ entities in the Email Template Wizard, a new checkbox Release Owner is added to select the Release Owner as an email recipient.

This enhancement ensures that the Release Owners are up to date with the changes and updates in their respective Releases.

View/Edit Activity/Criterion Pop-up Enhancement

Now, the position of the fields Type, Status, and Release Framework, on the ‘View/Edit Activity’ and ‘View/Edit Criterion’ pop-up, has been changed for a more consistent user experience. These fields now appear under the ‘Details’ section in the ‘Information’ tab.

For details, see Manage Release Activities.
