In our quest to provide the best customer experience by focusing on areas that provide maximum customer value, Tracker will occasionally remove features that have low usage and/or aren’t providing much value. This not only helps to alleviate feature bloat and declutter the UI, it creates a better environment for our team to provide higher value, faster.
The following tables list features that have already been removed as well as those targeted to be removed on a future date.
|Favorited Sidebar Epics||December 3, 2018||Although it’s no longer possible to add epics to your sidebar, epics that were already favorited will remain in user’s sidebars for a short while longer. We will notify those using the feature before completely removing it.|
|V3 + V4 API||January 22. 2019||This includes removal of support for Atom feeds. For more on this deprecation please see Tracker Developer API V3/V4 Versions Deprecated blog. For information on how to migrate over to API V5, please see Migrating to API v5.|
|Time Tracking||March 31, 2019||Time Tracking has not been available for some time, however, it was grandfathered for those using it. It will be permanently removed for those remaining users on March 31, 2019.|
|GitHub integration changes||May 20, 2019||The GitHub integration dropdown menu for manually attaching branches and PRs has been removed, including the requirement for authorization in GitHub to use the integration this way (still required for setting up the integration). For details regarding the current implementation, please see our GitHub integration article.|
|Minimal Story Density Mode||June 17, 2019||In addition to this density mode having very low usage, it also caused a lot of confusion for folks who unintentionally found themselves in this mode. There are no plans to remove Projector or Dense Mode at this time.|
|Nothing is scheduled for removal at this time|
