Speak Peek on 2022: Teams Come to SpiraTeam and SpiraPlan

December 16th, 2021 by inflectra

As we start preparing for 2022, we will be providing some information on our plans for 2022, including some previews of planned functionality in our Spira and Rapise platforms. One of the key plans for SpiraTeam and SpiraPlan in 2022 is the addition of a new artifact called "Teams". These teams will be available across the system to make assignment of work easier as well as improving the usability and configurability of the agile planning boards.

Overview of Planned Teams Functionality

We are planning on adding a new system-wide way to group users, separate from the current roles and product membership that is already available in the system. This new functionality will be called Teams, and will be managed at the system/global level:

This new way of grouping users will allow you define different types of team, e.g. Developers, Business Analysts, Project Managers, Quality Assurance. That way users will be assigned to a product both with a role (from a security perspective) and also optionally a team:

The exact ways in which you will be able to use teams is still being discussed, but the kinds of uses could include:

  • Grouping users on the various agile planning boards to make it easier to assign and view work on the boards
  • Ability to assign artifacts to a group as well as individuals
  • For SpiraPlan customers, the ability to see all of the work assigned to different roles across the entire enterprise.
