New Portfolio Item Subscriptions

Enterprise Agile Planning

During my time on the VersionOne Services team, one of the features I always tried to highlight with larger customers was subscriptions. Such a simple feature can provide a huge impact in larger enterprises. Team members can use subscriptions to alert them  when they have been assigned to a task or test. A product owner can subscribe to be notified when a story is set to the done status for approval. And now with the Spring 2016 Release VersionOne can also  support subscriptions for Portfolio Items. There are several good uses for Portfolio Item Subscriptions. First, it will be quite useful for users involved in higher level planning who want to be kept up to date with changes to initiatives or features. Another use would be for anyone involved in DevOps to know when a portfolio item of type feature is set to ready for deployment. And for organizations implementing the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®), subscriptions are useful for PI planning.  Those are just a few ways to use Portfolio Item Subscriptions that come to mind quickly.  From the screenshot below you will notice that we tried to be consistent with other subscriptions.

The status changed subscription of course contains a status filter. Give the subscription a title, set your filters, click subscribe...and you're done! A feature enhancement such as Portfolio Item Subscriptions is a classic case where a small addition can make a huge impact.  We promote face/to/face collaboration, however that is not possible in all cases.  For distributed teams or people that simply wear too many hats, subscriptions are an easy way to feel connected. What uses can you come up with for Portfolio Items Subscriptions? Click here for more information about VersionOne's Spring 2016 Release.
