Release Notes - Sorted by Release Date 

Release Date Function Area LeanKit card Release Note Description
March 11 Financial Summary 1703828382 Fixed. When changing a date range to Monthly in the Financial Summary, the order of the columns would shift. Now, date range changes do not affect the ordering of the columns.
March 11 Financial Summary 1701435776 Fixed. The order of the columns in the Financial Summary settings did not match the ordering of the actual Financial Summary. Now, they do match.
February 25 Reports 1699660756

Fixed. Timesheet Entry field level filters were missing from Resource Time series reports. They now show correctly in report configuration and produce correct results in rendered output. 

Due to this issue, the fix for actual hours on time series reports not exporting correctly to Excel (card 1666185533 below) had to be reverted and will be addressed in a future release.

February 25 Reports 1657922503 Fixed. Users were unable to drilldown in Timesheet crosstab reports if the report had resource entities in the left axis. Drilldown functionality has been restored for these reports.
February 25 Reports 1686997345 New. Users can now configure background colors in a wider range of fields. Now, all numeric fields (both non-Time series and Time series fields) in List: Basic and List: Time Series support conditional background colors.
February 25 Financial Summary 1699464150 Fixed. Financial Summaries were displaying currency data using the Organization currency instead of the Project Currency. Now, Financial Summaries display data in the correct currency for each project.
February 25 Legacy Reports 1670261234 Fixed. When running a legacy report with the Target and audit start date filters, the report would return values that did not match the filters. This no longer occurs and the filters work correctly in legacy reports.
February 18 (production) Requests 1648658017 Fixed. Editing request gates would reset the day counter for alerts that were set to trigger Daily every X days. This caused alerts to be sent within 24 hours of any edit to a request gate. This no longer happens and request gate edits do not affect the timing of alerts.
February 18 (production) Reports 1666185533

Fixed. Just kidding. We fixed an issue with time series reports which caused actual hours to be exported incorrectly to Excel. Now, when exporting to Excel, actual hours match the values shown the in the original time series report.

Note: The fix for card 1699660756 above required that this change be reverted. It will be added back in a future release.

February 18 (production) Alerts 1683217214 Fixed. There was a German translation error in Alerts. On this page, On has been retranslated to Activ.

February 18 (production)
