This section introduces new functions added to TRICHORD.
New functions in TRICHORD 1.3.0 are described below.
Ability to merge Task Kanban Data
The ability to merge Task Kanban helps you manage multiple revisions of the information of Task Kanban efficiently. In case that you and other team member have the same cards on each TRICHORD, this merge function enables you to import the information of cards that others have updated to your Cards. So you always have
the latest and accurate Kanban data to work on. Merge can be preceded
automatically or manually.
New shortcut keys for Zoom-in
The shortcut keys for Zoom-in used to be the "Ctrl++" in Kanban.
They no longer work and new Zoom-in shortcut keys are "Ctrl+=".
Ability to edit Properties

conveniently for you to edit.
Now you can show Cards in two different sizes. You can change the card size depending on what you do. For example, by showing the "DONE" cards in small size, you will be able to make Kanban Space bigger and maximize the efficiently of the space you work on.

The Deadline Icon used to be shown on Task Card if the status is not DONE yet even after it passed the deadline. Since this version,

When creating a new task, it comes with "1" estimate time and "1" remaining time by default.
