YouTrack 2017.2 introduces a redesigned user profile. The updated interface lets you manage your general settings, notifications, tags and saved searches in one place. If you use YouTrack Standalone and Hub as an external service, you can access your profile in the connected profiles block directly from general tab.
The second tab lets you view and manage your personal list of tags and saved searches.
Changing the board owner
You can now change the owner of an agile board in the Board Settings panel. Simply click the name of the current owner and then choose a new owner from the drop-down list. This feature helps you manage your agile boards and adapt to organizational changes.
You can assign issues to the ongoing sprint by using the current sprint command. Reference the current sprint in search queries and commands. You can also create reports that track your current efforts automatically if you reference the current sprint in the search query.
The name of the current sprint is shown in bold in the sprints drop-down list.
YouTrack 2017.2 introduces the first version of Activity stream. This functionality replaces the tab interface in issue views for comments, history, linked issues, similar issues, time tracking, and VCS changes. These components are merged into a single stream that you can filter to display specific types of activities. In the current version of Activity stream, you can add work item and comments. You can also apply filters to display either work items or comments separately.
In YouTrack 2017.2 you can customize the title for any widget. This helps assign meaningful titles and better distinguish between widgets that use similar queries.
Simplified board commands
YouTrack 2017.2 also makes board commands better. You can now add and remove issues from the current sprint without specifying a sprint name. For example, use the command Add Board name to add an issue on the current sprint of the board.
