Easier to create work items and themes, public boards, create PRs

Create work items and themes from almost anything

We have now added an option to create a work item or a theme from selected text, comments, and todos. It makes it easier than ever to split work items and themes, and to create work items from discussions in Kitemaker. Just look for the "+" icon.

Public boards

Do you want to share your boards publicly or with users who don't have access to Kitemaker? We now have a public board feature. It opens up boards and anyone can view the board through a special link. You can also toggle to share metadata and decide if all work items (including the ones that are not publicly shared) should be visible on the board.


Create PRs from branches

You can quickly create PRs in GitHub from activities in Kitemaker. Just click on the pull request button in a commit activity and you’ll be taken to GitHub to finalize the PR.


Beta features

Inline comments

Discussions in the activity feed are great, but sometimes you want to comment on specific text in a work item or theme. We’re making that possible with our new inline comment feature.


If you're interested in trying this out, send us an email at hi@kitemaker.co or ping us on our community Slack!
