How to Use the Release View

Chisel’s release view allows users to easily visualize their release cycles and which features will belong to each release cycle.

Release Landing Page

  • Upon clicking the release view on the left, you will be placed on a screen with various releases shown on the top header.
  • Also, the various components that make up your product will be on the right below the headers.
  • All the features for the product will be in the same release that you placed them inside the treeview.
  • For feature actions like editing the title of features, etc, click on the ellipsis.
  • Any end dates for features, labels, and people working on the feature will be easily visible.
  • You can easily drag features between releases if you want to move a feature up or down releases.
  • Clicking on a feature will result in the side panel with the same functionality as the one in the treeview and the Kanban view.

Adding a Release

From Treeview

  • You can add a release by clicking on the ‘add another release‘ button at the bottom after all the current releases.
  • Once you do, a text field will appear, letting you type the release’s name.
  • Once you choose a name, hit Enter and the release will be finalized.
  • A few things to remember when mapping:
    • A feature can have multiple releases assigned. 
    • A sub-feature will have only a single release assigned 
    • When you select a release for a sub-feature, it will automatically assign the release to its corresponding feature as well. 

From Release View

  • Click on +Add another release
  • Enter the Release title
  • Press Enter or simply click outside the box

Rearranging a Release

  • If you want to move your releases from right to left or vice versa, you can easily do that too.
  • Go to any release title, and click on the edit icon to open the tab with all the ‘Release Actions.’
  • Once here, you can click on ‘Move to Right’ or ‘Move to left‘ based on your requirements.
  • Accordingly, you can see the changes in your release view.
