Our Backlog team has recently released usability improvements for selection menus in Backlog.
Please read on to learn more about them:
1. Deselect function:
- For single-selection menu
- For multi-selection menu
- For calendar selection menu
2. Multi-selection menu: search function
3. Multi-selection menu in batch update: do-not-change option
Previously, to clear a selection in a dropdown menu, users had to click on a blank option. With this update, a deselect function has been added so that you can deselect options without opening the menu.
Deselect function for single-choice selection menu
We have added an “X” button for users to cancel their selection.
Deselect function for multi-selection menu
Similarly for the multi-choice selection menu, you can click on the “Unselect” button to clear your selection.
Deselect function for calendar menu
Previously, to clear the selected date, you had to delete the entered text with Backspace, but now you can clear it with a click of the “X” button.
We’ve added a keyword filter to the multi-selection menu so that you can search the options. Previously, this was only available in the single-selection menu.
Previously, when updating issues in batch update, if you switched options in the multi-selection menu, you could not return to the original state.
In this update, we’ve added a “Do-not-change” button to help you keep the original state.
Our Backlog team is improving the usability of Backlog regularly to make it more user-friendly and comfortable to use. We hope that you will find these updates useful for your everyday use.
