This feature now enables customers to create issues and user stories via email. From top navigation go to “more” and click on “Interact via Email” menu option. You need to set “Subdomain” for your organization and then define “Project Key” for all of your projects to get unique email address for each project.
Quick view of Interact via email page.
There are always certain situations where you would like to see clear dependencies and ability to block items progress as they depend on other things. For example, a release probably shouldn’t be closed until some blocker issues are resolved. Until now there was no simple way to handle such situations in Yodiz. In this release, we have introduced powerful ways to create, manage and track dependencies. Now you are able to define if an item is blocked by other items or it’s simply relate to other.
View all dependencies from “Dashboard” and “Dependencies” link.
Probably one of the most requested feature recently is ability to view tasks and issues from all projects at single page. We had some complete renewal plans for To-Do page, but we decided to add the support for Multi-Projects first to enable teams and individuals to manage their work more efficiently at Yodiz. There are some UI enhancements at To-Do page along with ability to select multiple-projects to view items. Remember To-do can be accessed from “Start” icon next to chat at top navigation bar and from “Dashboard” menu with option “To-Do”.

To enable better classification of issues we have introduced “Priority” field. For existing projects you can opt to use priority field by going to Project Settings and editing “Details.
