Live Chat πŸ’¬

Absolute dates on hover πŸ“…

yokanban! normally displays all dates in a human-readable sentence (e.g. 3 days ago). While this is really easy to digest it is not precise. Therefore we added the option to display the absolute date a little tooltip when hovering over the relative date.

Kanban Metrics πŸ“Š

Users are now able to generate metrics from their work on yokanban! We start with two kinds of metrics:

  2. Average Cycle Time
