Agile Blog - Riter

Let’s talk a little about the history of the tracker and maybe its future. There are so many management tools in our world right now. When it comes to finding out something new, you can get encouraged with a huge variety of propositions that are ready to help you with your planning. Every program has got its name, which in this or other way suits best for it. But have you thought about why programs got these names but not others? And how does the name of a program really describe the functionality of it?
Hi, guys! As we promised in the previous post, today’s release is distinguished by many significant updates in different parts of Riter application. First of all, we’re ready to introduce you an entirely new feature — story history bot — which will let you always stay aware of the latest changes in the project. Another feature with the same goal is a new ability to subscribe to a story and quickly know about all related updates. Some other changes have affected sprint and story management, search and filtering, Riter API, and project settings. Read the post to know more and use new functionality to the maximum.
The world is changing, and traditional management processes often don’t allow companies to stay afloat. To successfully compete with existing organizations, they’re looking for new ways to organize their workflow. No one continues to be surprised by impressive social packages, high bonuses and other material goods — today’s employees are more interested in new challenges and opportunities for personal growth and development. The widespread lack of motivation among staff harms companies even more than business of their competitors. Remote work and flexible scheduling become increasingly frequent in descriptions of vacancies. A promise of discretion, exciting projects, and a friendly atmosphere are the only things which can lure talented specialists to your team. Against this background, interest in teal companies is predictably growing.
It’s important to have time to cope with all your projects, even if you're a startuper, or just think about starting a new project. It seems that it is quite easy when you are at the beginning of your development process. But when it comes to business, you understand that it is a trap, to think in such a way. When you just launch your project, it's even harder, because you know too little yet, and you are like a sponge inquiring all around yourself.
Hi, guys! This time we want to present you only a few updates, but they have made a significant impact on Riter. The major changes have affected sprint management and task planning. In this post we will tell about all important aspects of sprint usage in Riter, unscheduled and overdue tasks, creating your own sprints and scheduling the future work. We have also expanded your capabilities to control third-party analytics services in accordance with the requirements of GDPR and made a few minor changes described below.
The life of a today’s student is often presented as a carefree series of parties and meetings with friends, but even if it is not the complete lie, one day it will be interrupted by exams. At this time (and for someone throughout the whole semester), students are loaded with a huge pile of tasks, reports, presentations, and research which are supposed to be done “yesterday”. It may be difficult even to keep in mind all these duties, not to say about organizing everything in the best way, managing time and meeting deadlines.
At Riter, we welcome the adoption of new data protection standards so as nothing is more important to us than the success and safety of our customers. Regardless of your location and nationality, we strive to ensure the safety of your data at the highest level. We don’t care, whether you are from EU, USA, or somewhere else, we provide equal rights to all our customers and do not look for loopholes in the law. This post outlines several steps which we have recently taken to ensure Riter compliance with the GDPR.
Sometimes we ask ourselves — how to choose what we need and, what is more important, how to understand what we need. The same question arises when you need to choose the best way to plan your work and to control all the processes which happen in your project. An issue tracker is an excellent choice which gonna make your life easier, but how not to lose control of what you need and get rid of overpaying? That’s what we gonna talk about.
Every issue tracker has its own advantages and disadvantages. But in process of developing, each of them is oriented to make our life easier.
Today we gonna talk about such possibility as clean and dirty hours. What’s that and what’s that thing for. Following it’s name you may guess that clean hours means something combined with an appropriate thing, something that has nothing superfluous. And you a right. Clean hours undermine itself to count just that time, which you really use while working on different type of tasks.
Why you need it, and how could it help you?
