Respect Jira screen scheme
Prevent editing of fields that aren’t added to the issue screen scheme
Jira Cloud, Jira Server, Jira Data Center
Use the “Respect Jira screen scheme” toggle switch to adjust the field mapping settings.
When the toggle switch is “on” - if a field can’t be updated in a Jira project, you can’t edit it in BigPicture column views and cards.
For example, when you try to edit a task value in BigPicture, the app tries to find a matching Jira issue field in a project. When the field doesn’t exist (that issue doesn’t have it), the app doesn’t let you edit the field.
Settings can be adjusted per Jira project, just like other field mapping settings.
Note: restriction doesn’t apply to fields that have been mapped.
Data type labels - inline editing available
You can use inline editing to add/ remove/ edit the value of a label field.
This lets you easily assign tasks to teams and add required skills to tasks.
Task Viewer and Task Editor can group tasks (Scope module).
Select data type is available for custom Box columns in the Overview module.
Timeboxes synchronized with a Jira “sprint” field - warnings displayed within the app
When automatic timebox creation is based on sprints:
Changes made in the Task Details Dialog are saved when you click outside of the pop-up
You can use inline editing to update a task. When you edit values in the Task Details pop-up, changes are always saved. Even when you just close the pop-up or click outside of the pop-up.
Message - task period can’t be changed
When a task can’t be moved on a timeline, you see a message explaining why the task can’t be moved.
“Manual” tasks - duration behavior
Duration of a task (duration working days) is respected by tasks in a manual mode. Non-working days are taken into account when rescheduling a task.
On screens where column views can’t be saved (there is no drop-down to change a column view) - the Box Admin column view setup is treated as the default. Users can restore the admin view.
“Basic item” renamed “basic task”
