API version 2
Smaller bug fixes and enhancements
Setting field options per issue type
Squish now features the ability to set a number of options, including when a field should be readonly or required, and default values, per issue type. For example, fields can be made read-only after an issue is resolved, or required when updating or resoling an issue.
Charts on your project homepage
Searches saved to your project homepage can now be displayed as a number of different types of charts (pie, bar, stacked bar, etc), grouped by a field you choose.
Dynamically add lookups
Lookup fields can now be configured to allow certain roles to be able to add lookup values "on the fly". A user with the appropriate role can just start typing a new lookup value into the select widget, and choose to add the new value, which will be saved when updating the issue.
Notification email improvements
Email notifications have been streamlined to include the issue subject in the email subject, and set the sender's name to be the user who updated the issue. This allows email clients to property thread update notifications for the same issue.
Email issues and comments directly into Squish
Squish now features the ability to create new issues via email, and comment on existing issues via email. Keeping email threads in Squish issues is now as simple as CCing an email address specific to that issue. You can read more about the new email capabilities.
Customizable company dashboard page
With Squish 7.0, you can add saved searches from any project to your overall company dashboard page, and customize the display of those searches. Great for keeping an eye on all your projects from one place.
Webhooks can be configured to make HTTP requests to your server when issues are submitted or updated, allowing for deeper integration with other systems. Read more about webhooks.
We developed a new Issue Grid search action that allows users with the mass change role permission to view search results as a table of issues, broken down by one or two lookup fields. Users can drag and drop issues in this table, and save all the changes at once.
Squish now allows project members to set their issue display prefernces on a project-by-project basis. Want to use a WYSIWYG editor in one project, show field history by default in another, and customize which fields appear on searches by default in another? You can do all that in Squish 7.0.
Cross-project user timeline
Similar to the project timeline feature, Squish now includes a timeline of your actions across all projects.
An updated database, more aggressive caching, and a worldwide CDN for static assets will make Squish page loads snappier for everyone.
The Squish wiki now features a list of recent page changes, and a table of contents visible from each page.
New Mobile-Friendly Design
The look and feel of Squish has been re-thought for better usability and mobile compatibility. With drag and drop re-ordering, select boxes with a text filter, and more obvious comment previewing, Squish is easier to use than ever.
Project Homepage Customization
It is now possible to completely customize your project homepage, including selecting which fields to display and drag and drop re-ordering. Searches displayed on your homepage also respect the sorting and grouping you've set.
WYSIWYG Comment Editor
Squish now has an option to use a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor for comments and wiki pages, so you don't need to enter formatting codes manually.
In addition to better performance for large searches, it is now possible to specify field ordering, and search for issues on your watch list. There are new search actions for viewing an Issue Resolution Chart, managing issues on your watch list, and resetting sort and display fields to the project default. It is also possible to search using relative dates, i.e. "in the last" or "in the next" N days.
New Role Permissions
There are now role permissions for editing wiki pages, accessing the mass change action in searches, and enforcing issue workflows. A user whose roles indicate that workflows should be enforced will only be able to update issues via applicable workflow actions.
A new way to visualize activity on a project in an ordered manner! The Project Timeline shows updated bugs, comments, wiki page edits, issue resolutions, etc. broken down by date. Users are able to filter this list based on which "event" types you want to see (e.g. only show me resolved issues during this time).
Squish will keep track of issues that link to each other. For example, if issue #3 links to issue #5 in the description or any of the comments, issue #5 will display that issue #3 is related to it, even though there is no direct link in the issue itself.
First and foremost, workflows can now be automatically run when issues are submitted. For instance, a workflow may triage all issues matching some criteria and automatically assign them to a particular user. Workflows may now also be placed in the "action bar" for an issue, alongside the Update and Notify buttons, giving common workflows greater exposure and "first-class" status. Finally, a special (Previous User) value was added to Assigned To actions, allowing workflows to reassign issues to the previous user. This will facilitate conversational workflows, where an issue is passed back and forth.
Search results are now ranked by keyword matches, and display a relevance indicator.
Lost Content Warning
Squish will now warn you when trying to leave an issue with unsaved changes.
