List of New Boards Hub bugs fixed in sprint 214. We enabled the “Try New Boards Hub” message across another ring of accounts. The process continues to go slower than originally expected. Every time we enable the message, we receive more feedback on issues that need to be fixed. This process will continue over the next couple of sprints. We want to get the rollout right and the issues fixed before making New Boards Hub the default experience.
