Change issue status in comment screen on Backlog for iOS

We recently released an update on Backlog for Android that allows mobile users to change an issue’s status without having to leave the comment screen; today, we’re releasing the same update for iOS users.

It’s now easy for mobile users to change the status of issues while leaving comments, which gives your team more context around these changes. Context is crucial for helping your team understand the progress of your workflow. Without this information, status changes can easily become confusing, or worse, meaningless.

How to Change an Issues Status While Commenting

Next time you’re changing the status of an issue from your iOS device, type up your comment and select your new status from the Options section to change the status simultaneously.

Now, you can easily update statuses on mobile while providing important information, questions, and feedback for context.

Universal Link Support for Shared Files

We also added universal link support, which means when you click a file URL shared with you in another app, it will open directly in the Backlog iOS App rather than your mobile browser.
