Importing user stories from Jira 🦾

You asked for it and we listened - now you can also import existing stories and tickets from Jira into Fable.

This will help your team hit the ground running with Fable - import your Jira tickets and empower your team to collaborate on what you're building.

Importing stories from a specific Epic in Jira

We've also added more data into the story so you can track things like assignee and status as they change in Jira, right from your Fable docs

Other improvements: Jira sync stability improvements - now we make sure your team is all syncing to the same Jira project to keep things on track. We also included some usability boosts like better auto saving and overall app performance

User stories + sync with Jira 🔁

We're super excited for this release. It's one of our biggest yet.

With this release, you can create user stories in Fable and collaborate on them with your team. Add any content to a user story, including Figma/Loom embeds, tables, lists, and sections.

When you're ready to start building, tap a button and we'll send it over to Jira. Most importantly, we'll keep the story sync'ed bi-directionally between Fable and Jira - so you don't have to worry about which one is the source of truth.

Other Improvements: We are also moving to a new backend with this release to improve performance and stability of Fable.

Fresh coat of paint + support for multiple devices

Login to Fable and check out the new coat of paint - you'll notice that the the left navigation bar in particular is easier to use 🙌

Plus, we added responsive support so you can use Fable on your desktop, tablet, or mobile device.

Slack integration

We're very excited to launch this feature. It lets you:

  • Send key decisions from Slack to Fable so you don’t lose them in the noise
  • Tag collaborators on decisions made on Slack
  • Share decisions from Fable to Slack 

You can get started by tapping the “Integrations” tab in the bottom left of the navbar. If you need any support getting it approved by your IT team, we’re happy to chat with them and answer any questions. 

New logo

We decided it was time for us to move off the temporary logo we created a few months ago. Hope you like the new one! 

Enhancements

  • Image upload now supported in the editor
  • Share button to directly share a doc or space - teammates will have access to all content in the space
  • You can now create a new doc by tapping the ‘+’ button next to Documents in the navbar
  • Fixing some UI issues with button placement on large screens
  • Improved logic for the Recents modules
  • Ability to switch between workspaces and change roles of people in a workspace
  • Get to integrations directly from the navbar
  • Improved auto save - saving every 3 secs now instead of 5 secs

Standalone decisions

We heard that it was confusing to have to create a comment first to log a decision (and we also felt the same), so now you can log a decision by just heading straight to the Decisions tab.

Enhancements

  • You can set custom emojis for each space to make it easier to differentiate b/w them
  • Improved copy + paste, it should preserve formatting in more situations now
  • Support for multi line comments and decision summary
  • Support @ mentions in decision summary
  • Improved auto save (fewer annoying alerts!)
  • Ability to start a new doc or decision right from the recent docs/decisions modules
  • Improved support for real-time comments when you collab with colleagues
