Introducing Workspace groups, our latest feature that helps you manage and organize your workspaces into dedicated folders. Groups provide context to your work, help you visualize how everything connects together, and improve collaboration and permission management.
Click the "+" icon in your sidebar to add a group.
Default item colors
To better differentiate types of items across workspaces, we’ve added the option for you to select a default item color for each workspace. The combination of item type icons (which we launched last week) and default item colors will allow you to easily distinguish items when navigating between multi-workspace setups (particularly with Hierarchy).
We made the three dots menu icon next to workspace names and Priority Poker game names more visible so that you can easily access the settings within it.
The "Unplanned items" panel is now closed by default.
We've added a warning confirmation dialog when you close the form popover on the Portal.
Bug fixes 🐞
Fixed a bug that did now allow you to remove a workspace from the Insights app.
Fixed the drag and drop function on the board view so that you can drop items anywhere in the board view easily.
The popover for selecting an item within the Insights app now loads properly again when you start highlighting the text.
Fixed a bug that causes the ''Unsaved changes'' popover to appear even after successfully submitting feedback within the Forms app.
Fixed a bug that causes App cards to not appear on Safari.

Item type icons
airfocus users use multiple workspaces to manage their products. With many things to keep track of, they need a better way to differentiate types of items across workspaces. To tackle this issue, we’ve launched icons for each item type so that you can easily identify the items you're working with.
These icons for item types are fixed and are consistent across all workspaces. You can find a list of item types within the general tab of your workspace settings.
We will be launching item type colors in the near future, which will allow you to define different colors for your items.
With the introduction of the item type icons, we’ve also made some visual improvements to our table view and list view.
Bug fixes 🐞
Fixed a bug that shows only half the text of the workspace search bar.
You can now upload bigger files to your item cards! We’ve adjusted the file upload limit from 8.4 MB to 1GB.
Fixed a bug that shows the ‘Discard changes’ dialog within the Forms app even when the user has not typed anything into the form.
Fixed a bug that causes column titles not to update accordingly when filters have been applied.

New navigation and home screen
We learned that organizing your workspaces and switching between them can be challenging when you want to scale your product management workflows. That's why we've revamped our navigation and home screen, making them way more intuitive to use so that you can kick start your workday in no time. Read below to find out all about the new additions:
New side panel navigation
We have transformed our dual top navigation bars into a dedicated side panel where you can find all your system/team-level navigation.
You can seamlessly access your home, your notifications, your all-new favorites, your workspaces and portals, as well as your account/team/billing settings within the panel.
The side panel can also be hidden and displayed easily with a toggle allowing you to focus on the individual workspace content.
New ‘Favorites’ section
You can now favorite a workspace for quick and easy access by clicking on the ‘Add to favorites’ option in the dropdown menu of the workspace.
Improved inner-workspace navigation
We've also upgraded the inner-workspace navigation, making it a lot easier to find what you need. The top navigation bar contains all actions and settings that apply to your workspace as a whole, such as the workspace name, workspace settings, permissions, apps, integrations, and the 'Add item' button. This section will also display view or app-specific call-to-actions.
In the secondary top navigation bar, you will find view-level navigation elements such as the view switcher, view-based search, filter options, display options, and view sharing.
New home screen
Kickstart your work day by seeing the most important things right in front of you at a glance. The new home screen features a set of basic widgets for recently updated workspaces, notifications, and featured templates.
Set up your whole product management workflow with a click of a button with our new multi-workspace templates. These convenient templates allow you to easily set up an entire workflow with preconfigured hierarchy, apps, and multiple workspaces. Check them out here.
Improved performance of the Item Mirror app
With the increasing usage of the Item Mirror app, we’ve made technical performance improvements to make the app run a lot smoother.
