Unito isn’t, and will never be, finished. We’re always working to improve, and this is often driven by recommendations from our awesome users. A ton of updates and changes, big and small, are rolled out each month that we don’t want you to miss! This post will be updated on an ongoing basis to capture all of those changes, so be sure to check back in for the latest.
May 2020 updates
An easier way to sign up with Jira
In an effort to simplify the sign-up process, users looking to connect their Jira Cloud account to Unito can now do so right from within the Atlassian marketplace.
You no longer need to leave your Jira instance to access Unito. And once you’ve signed up, you can also build your syncs directly from within your Jira window.
March 2020 updates
Improved Jira filtering
We’ve introduced even more ways to filter your Jira projects within Unito syncs. You can now filter by:
- Fix Version
- and Custom Fields
These are essential for building flexible development workflows. Project and product managers can now plan, deliver, and report on issues, filtering the most relevant information to collaborators on other teams — like filtering by status to report on progress or filtering by fix version to communicate new feature releases.
Sprint and backlog syncing for Jira
Unito users are now able to sync sprint and backlog to sections, columns, and custom fields in connected tools. What does this mean? You can now move things directly from Trello, Asana, Wrike, and other tools into Jira, mapping to sprints and backlogs — or the reverse. This makes it way easier to incorporate Agile sprints and backlogs into your workflow no matter what tool you spend your time in.
February 2020 updates
Sync Asana milestones
Previously, if you used Unito to sync Asana tasks, they would all get synced together, regardless of type. One of the most popular feature requests from Asana users was the ability to sync Asana milestones. Now, thanks to the “task type” filter, you can do just that! This filter allows you to include or exclude milestones from your sync independently of other tasks. You can also specify what you want to sync milestones with, such as Jira epics. Learn more about syncing milestones in our help center.
January 2020 updates
Access synced attachments without a tool account
Unito has always synced attachments between tools, allowing you to share vital documents, images, or anything else with your collaborators. Where previously you needed accounts in both synced tools in order to access attachments, you now only need an account in one of the two. This makes it so much easier for all stakeholders to get the information they need from the tool they’re already using. Learn more about attachment syncing on our help center.
Unito syncs 100% of native Trello fields
More Unito users sync Trello than any other tool, and we’re thrilled to announce that we now cover all the bases! Trello users can now sync attachments across cards, making Trello-Trello workflows run even more smoothly. With this new functionality, Unito users can sync everything that you find in a normal Trello card.
Duplicate syncs for quicker creation
People use Unito to save themselves time organizing projects and tasks across tools. But now, Unito also saves you time when it comes to… well, using Unito! We’ve introduced the ability to duplicate syncs, cutting down on setup time and effort. Find the sync you want to duplicate, and in just a few clicks you’ll have a brand new sync ready to go. Learn how to duplicate a sync on our help center.
Mapping users at the workspace level
As long as your users use the same email address for all their tools, Unito can map them automatically, so that all their contributions are attributed to the right person. But if those email addresses didn’t match, you used to have to map your users on a sync-by-sync basis. Not anymore! Now you can map users at the workspace level. This means you only need to map them once rather than for every sync. Find out how this works in this help center article.
December 2019 updates
Sync Trello’s due date checkbox
Not everyone wants their completed tasks to disappear from view. With that in mind, Trello introduced a feature allowing you to “check off” a due date as a way to show you’ve finished the card but still keep it on your board.
Due date checkboxes can now be synced across Trello boards using Unito. Use this new feature to more easily track your progress on large projects by checking off due dates instead of completing cards.
New Test Mode allows you to test new syncs
Worried your new sync might mess up your existing tasks and projects? Now you can test the sync before rolling it out to existing tasks. With Test Mode, only new tasks or cards — those you create after building a new sync — will be included. This allows you to build a new sync, then try it out to make sure it works exactly how you want. Once everything is running smoothly, you can turn off test mode and all your existing tasks that fit the sync parameters will also sync over. Learn more about Test Mode on our Help Center.
November 2019 updates
Map column and status separately
We have a special treat for Trello, Basecamp, and Asana users. We’ve added the ability to map column and status separately! Where before a closed task might automatically end up in a “Done” column, you can now have closed tasks mapped to any column, or open tasks mapped to “Done.” This is just one example of a potential use case. For more information, check out our help center.
October 2019 updates
Workspace settings update
We’ve revamped our workspace settings, splitting usage, people, and billing into unique sections. It’s never been easier to add collaborators to your workspace, manage active users, or monitor your app usage. Dive in and let us know what you think!
September 2019 updates
New signup and login pages
Whether you’re a new customer or an existing Unito user, the next time you go to use the app you might notice some changes: we’ve given our signup and login pages a makeover! In both instances, the pages are cleaner and easier to use than ever before. You’ll simply select your tool from a dropdown menu and get started.
Dating your comments
Any time you sync a comment with Unito, we’ll now add a tiny date showing you exactly when that comment was posted. This is a small change but an impactful one, especially for long-term projects with many different collaborators. You can trace back feedback to make sure it was implemented in a timely fashion, see when approvals were made, or use old synced comments to estimate timelines for future work.
August 2019 updates
Sales teams rejoice! Unito releases HubSpot integration
An effective sales team depends on the support of the entire organization. From creating sales collateral to developing new features, all teams have a role to play in the sales process. Now, it’s easier than ever for salespeople to collaborate with their colleagues thanks to the Unito HubSpot integration. Sync HubSpot with nine of the biggest work management tools on the market. In just a few minutes, your sales team can be sending sales tasks to collaborators in Trello, Jira, Zendesk, and more. Try it out and let us know what you think!
Lock your lists with Mirror
If you work on a big team, the Unito Mirror Power-Up is a useful tool for collaborating on Trello cards across multiple boards. But as cards start to flow from board to board, you may want to take extra steps to keep everything organized. Admins can now lock the destination list of mirrored cards. Users will still be able to decide what board to send a card to, but all the cards will end up in a list of your choice, so you can triage them appropriately.
July 2019 updates
Signing up for Unito with Jira or Zendesk is now a breeze
If you live in Jira or Zendesk, this update makes setting up Unito a whole lot easier. Where previously you’d have to sign up using a secondary tool like Trello or Asana, and then connect Jira or Zendesk, we’ve cut out the middleman. Developers and customer service professionals can now use their favorite tools to create their Unito account and start syncing in minutes! (Don’t forget to configure your Jira instance to recognize the Unito app before getting started.)
June 2019 Updates
Mirror is now fully supported on desktop and Safari
It’s been about two months since the launch of Mirror, Unito’s Trello Power-Up allowing you to sync individual cards between multiple boards. We’ve received so much great feedback from all of our Mirror users since then. Now, we’re happy to announce that the power-up is now fully supported on both Trello desktop and Safari.
Invoices made easier
Unito invoices just got a little bit easier to manage. First, we’ve added the ability to receive your monthly invoices by email. To do so, just jump into your settings by clicking your avatar in the top right corner of your dashboard. Select billing from the dropdown list, and under your billing email check “Please send me a copy of my receipt by email.”
Another small change was made so your invoices are listed in order of recency on the billing tab in your dashboard — makes sense, right?
Improvements to our Zendesk integration
The work on our newest integration, Zendesk, hasn’t stopped since it was released at the end of April. We’ve made a number of small additions that we hope will save customer service agents some much-valued time and effort. Among those tweaks is “typehead support.” Instead of having to copy and paste or memorize your Zendesk labels, Unito now populates them in the filter settings dialogue.
We’ve also optimized the way we interact with Zendesk’s API. As a result, we can handle syncing very large Zendesk instances much better than we could before.
