Introducing Two-Factor Authentication!
What is Two-Factor Authentication?
Also, known as 2FA, Two-Factor Authentication is an extra step to your login that adds an extra layer of protection to your account and is available to all Stormboard Users. Without 2FA, you only enter your username and password. With 2FA, an extra step has you enter an authentication code.
Why use Two-Factor Authentication?
Because Two-Factor Authentication requires two ways of proving your identity, it adds an additional level of security to your account.
Introducing Stormboard Academy!
We are excited to announce the launch of Stormboard Academy, a series of in-depth online courses that we have created to help you quickly onboard your team, make the most of your account, and ensure that you become a Stormboard pro!
How to Access Stormboard Academy
Stormboard Academy can be accessed by anyone with a Stormboard account.
Click the “Help” menu while on your Dashboard or in a Storm.
Select “Stormboard Academy”.
Begin your training!
The Template Section Dialog (what pops up when you click "Edit" in the section menu), has gotten a makeover!
We have also introduced "Counting" as an option in all of the sections of your template. This feature, found under the Type tab, allows you to count the number of votes, sticky notes (ideas), or story points in the section.
Once you have turned Counting on, you will have the option to set a Capacity for the section and determine what color you want it to turn if it goes over the capacity.
This allows you to keep track of the number of ideas in a section, the number of story points (if you are PI Planning), or the number of votes.
The photo below shows you what your section will look like if it goes over the number of ideas (10) that have been set as the section's capacity. The number of ideas is shown in the colored bar at the top of the section.
NEW: Stormboard + Jira and Azure DevOps Integrations
Take your planning paperless and fully engage your remote teams! Stormboard is now integrated with both Jira and Azure DevOps (see video below).
With these two-way integrations for Enterprise Teams, you can connect to your Jira or DevOps instance, query projects for issues/work items, and update issue/work item data without leaving your Storm!
