Orangescrum Product Update Roundup – Take a Tour

Orangescrum Product Update Roundup

April was yet another productive month with exciting feature releases. We always want users to have a great experience using Orangescrum.

Enabling collaboration, ensuring project data confidentiality, personalization and smooth navigation within Orangescrum was the focus of the month.

Let’s us review what’s in store and how you can experience it first hand!

Cloud Edition Updates:

1. User Role Management Feature for Cloud Edition:

Orangescrum started with the most demanding features of our cloud users. Here’s Orangescrum’s ‘User Role Managementfeature that provides clarity to your teams with well-defined roles & responsibilities.

Is your organization struggling to manage multiple user roles securely and effectively?

User Role Management

What Makes It Stand Out From The Rest?

Orangescrum account previously had only 4  roles – Owner, Admin, User and Client with some restricted access.

Many of our users did not want their teams to have access to very many actions and felt it did more harm than good e.g. unintentional task edits, close a task or change dates. These changes can cause chaos and affect the project plan & deadlines.

User Role Management allows for Roles Based Access (RBAC) & hence greater control with minimal distractions!

Here are some major benefits of User Role Management feature;

  • Define clear responsibilities for the team members
  • Role Based Access Control
  • Maintains privacy from higher to lower hierarchy
  • High flexibility in terms of actions and permissions across projects
  • Easily share and grant access on a Need to Know Basis
  • Hassle free Customer engagement

2. Quick Links & Left Menu Customization for Cloud Edition:

UI/UX is something our team at Orangescrum is highly passionate about. There is a very stiff yet healthy internal competition as to whose work goes out of the gate 🙂

After careful analysis and experimentation, we chose to simplify the overall navigation and left main menu personalization.

Now you can personalize your Orangescrum ‘Quick Links’ & ‘Left Menu’ options w.r.t the most frequently used features and actions.
