Improved todos

Improved todos

Todos in Kitemaker have just gotten a bunch of new features. Now you can add metadata such as members, labels and impact/effort.


Todos can also be marked as being in progress by either holding shift while clicking them or by pressing ctrl/cmd+shift+enter.

Much like work items themselves, todos now have a unique identifier of their own (e.g. ACM-9J). By mentioning this identifier in git commits and pull/merge request descriptions, Kitemaker will automatically associate the pull/merge requests with the todo and will even mark it as in progress or completed for you.


You can read all about the new todos in the Kitemaker Guide.

Beta features

Here are some of the upcoming features we’re currently iterating on which are not generally available to all users yet.

If you’re interested in trying out one of these features, send us a mail at hi@kitemaker.co or ping us on our community Slack!

  • We’re adding a place in Kitemaker where you can collect feedback from your users and link it to work items and themes.
  • We’re experimenting with adding a data warehouse syncing function to Kitemaker to enable teams to query their Kitemaker data right from the comfort of their own data warehouse.
