Right-click shortcuts for context menus!

We know it was a little tricky to open those context menus... so now we have a nice treat for you! Simply right-click anywhere on a journey, step, story or release handle, and you'll activate its associated context menu. Happy Halloween folks! 🙂

Embed your user story maps! 😎

You can now embed your user story maps wherever you want. This is perfect for those who have a company wiki or a separate project workspace who want to conveniently show their story maps to stakeholders and other team members. Please note: you must have private share links enabled for your user story map to do this.

Just set your user story map's private share link as the source of an iframe, for example:

<iframe src="https://app.avion.io/share/PTxQeqWqo5Kqjg6iB"></iframe>

For prettier embeds, you may want to specify frameborder , widthandheight attributes:

<iframe src="[YOUR SHARE URL]" frameborder="0" width="1200" height="800"></iframe>

Acceptance criteria field support for Azure DevOps

We've now extended our Azure DevOps integration to support the acceptance criteria field on work items. By default, this is now enabled when setting up a new integration. However, if you already had an active integration with Azure DevOps before this went live, you'll need to enable this setting in your configuration panel:
