In the upcoming weeks, you’ll begin to notice a few changes to your Mingle projects. Keep reading if you want to see a sneak peak of whats coming!

Additions to card preview

As a heavy Mingle user, I’m constantly moving, viewing, and editing cards so having the card preview is great because I can skim through cards quickly and make changes without losing my place on the card wall. The only downside to the card preview is not being able to view or download attachments without going to the full view.

Fortunately, that will no longer be an issue. We’ll be adding an attachments sidebar to the card preview with the same functionality as the full view. History will soon be included in the card preview as well.

Filter sidebar

Based on feedback from other users, we’ve decided to move the filter section to the top of the sidebar. You’ll still be able to access team and personal favorites, as well as options to export and import card data to Excel. You’ll also notice that the icon to expand or hide the sidebar has been enlarged for more visibility.

Project admin page

Because of the changes to the filter sidebar, we’ve decided to move the project admin link next to project murmurs so it won’t get in the way of your saved tab views.

As mentioned earlier, these changes will be released in the next few weeks. You may have noticed the filter sidebar changes already. As always, feel free to send us a message at mingle.feedback@thoughtworks.com.
