Clubhouse Cumulative Flow Diagram

Updated Cumulative Flow Diagram with new Sum Using filter and more

The Cumulative Flow Diagram (CFD) empowers teams to make process changes and allows for more accurate estimating and forecasting of work. We've updated the CFD with:

  • Sum Using filter to the CFD
  • Added the CFD to the Reports Page
  • Bookmark your Chart

Here's a full summary of changes to the CFD:

  • Everywhere it appears, the CFD now has a "Sum Using" filter next to the already pre-existing "Workflow" filter. The Workflow filter still filters the chart data so that only stories pertaining to that Workflow are included in the chart's data. The Sum using filter just changes the aggregate type for the data: You can select either "Story count" to see the number of stories in each Workflow State, or you can select "Points" to see the breakdown by Story Points.
  • The CFD now appears on the Reports page, where it didn't exist previously. It obeys all top-level filters on the page. The chart-level Workflow filter works the same as the one in the Time Spent in Workflow State Chart: Using the Project filter at the top of the Reports page will narrow the available options in the chart's Workflow filter. If Marketing is selected in the Workflow filter, and the Project filter is updated to include only Projects within Engineering, the Workflow filter for the CFD will automatically switch to Engineering.
  • The CFD now appears on Project pages, where it did not exist previously. The start date is the creation date of the project, and the end date is today. If the range ends up being more than 183 days, we switch the interval to weeks, and if the range is more than 730 days we switch to months.
  • The CFD still appears on the Epic and Iteration pages, but now uses the interval calculation (see above) to determine if it should display days/weeks/months. And it now has the Sum Using filter as well to determine the aggregate type.
  • The "Sum Using" and "Workflow" filter values are now stored in the URL for all pages where the CFD exists, which means they are bookmarkable (if you always want to see Marketing by Points, bookmarking the URL will load those filter values if they're in the URL)
  • On the Reports page, as usual, users can choose the interval with the Group By filter. Day / Week / and Month are supported, but Iteration is not supported.

Clubhouse Teams

Organize Clubhouse around your Teams

Our new "Teams" feature makes teams a first-class citizen of Clubhouse, just like they are within your organization. Teams have people, they own work and they have a process to complete that work. As such, Teams in Clubhouse contains Users, own Stories and Epics, and can run Iterations. By providing this thread between people, their work, and their process, Teams provides a foundation to organize around within Clubhouse.

Our first release unlocks the following functionality:

  • Users can be added to Teams
  • Stories, Epics and Iterations can be assigned to Teams
  • Team updates can be sent into Slack and email
  • All pages and views can be filtered by Team
  • Filter and selection options are prioritized by Team membership

This will immediately help you:

  • Zoom-in on work relevant to your Team
  • Increase visibility and collaboration across Teams
  • Provide Teams the space to operate more effectively 
  • Stay informed of a Team's progress
  • Measure Team performance

Read more over about Teams and the vision at the blog.

Milestones on the Roadmap

Use Milestones on the Roadmap to help plan, visualize, and communicate work more effectively in one place.

The addition of Milestones next to Epics in the Roadmap makes it even easier to map short-term efforts to long-term business goals. Clean visualization keeps your team ahead of blockers, plan the best course of execution, and manage expectations with an easily digestible big picture view of everything going on.

Here's everything that's new with the Roadmap:

  • See Milestones alongside Epics
  • More filters to customize views by Quarter, Milestones, Epic States, Labels, and more
  • Share unique URLs to share views of your Roadmap
Clubhouse Iteration Velocity Chart

Clubhouse Iteration Velocity Chart

Track actionable Sprint metrics with our new Iteration Velocity Chart

Clubhouse's newest reporting tool is our Iteration Velocity Chart. This chart enables you to track and understand your team's historical average output across Iterations and Sprints, helping you better estimate team capacity. You can also slice and dice this data by Story Type because you may not want to track your Bug work on the same level as your Feature. But, then again, you might want that, which is why we show all Story types together by default.

The chart shows how much work was completed in each past Iteration as well as the running average across multiple or all Iterations. These insights provide you with better information when making, as well as the ability to see the impact of changes on shipping velocity as your team grows and takes on new initiatives.

Clubhouse API

Use the Clubhouse API to find and update external links, and more!

The latest update to the Clubhouse API V3 enables users to update a Story's external links and to also find all Stories associated with a given external link. Her's what's new?

  • Renamed external_tickets to external_links
  • Use the external_links parameter on POST / / PUT Story
  • New public endpoint GET external_link/stories which lets you find all stories associated with an external_link
Charts available in Clubhouse Labs

We released a set of charts and reporting enhancements as part of Clubhouse Labs that will help you measure performance and make better, data-driven decisions.

What are these charts and enhancements? 

  • Time Spent in Workflow State:  A chart showing the amount of time your Stories spend in each workflow state.
  • Created vs Completed:  A visual representation of the Stories you've created vs the Stories you've completed.
  • Expanded reporting dates: You can now expand your reporting beyond our original 100-day limit. Now you can go all the way back to the beginning of time or to January 2016, whichever is most recent. 

You can activate these features in your Clubhouse Labs settings. Clubhouse Labs is available to organizations that are on a Standard Plan or higher. Read all about it here.
