Add Notes to Your Critical Number Updates

Critical Number Notes

You can now add a Note for a day that a Critical Number was updated, providing added insight to the rest of the team on why the number changed. All users can read Notes, while admins and non-admin owners of a Critical Number can add, edit and delete notes..

  • A blue dot on the graph means someone left a Note. Click on the dot to check it out.
  • A white dot on the graph means there is no Note for that day. Click on the dot to add a new Note.


Minor Updates and Bug Fixes

  • Ordered Huddle lists on Daily and Huddle pages in alphabetical order, instead of creation order. This includes the horizontal, 3-or-fewer, view and the vertical, 4-or-more dropdown, in both the Web and Mobile apps.
  • Order Team dropdowns in alphabetical order in the following places:
    • Critical Numbers Dashboard card
    • Team level security dropdown for Priorities and Tasks
    • OPSP dropdown
    • Team report filters
  • Increased the length of the Huddle name shown before cutting off to an ellipse in all dropdown areas in the app.
  • Show Sync Category on the Task drawer when you first create a new Task and fixed a bug where you couldn’t select a non-default Sync Category on the initial creation of the Task.
  • Fixed some filtering logic on the “Copy Previous Priority” screen.
  • New Tasks created from the My Dashboard card will have the default Visibility settings correctly set.
  • Restyled values in the Critical Number expanded graph to be horizontal and above the graph.
  • Add an “Add Task” button on the Dashboard card when you’re not in the empty state.
  • Clicking anywhere in the date field (not just the calendar icon) on a form will expand the date picker.
  • Pasting in formatted text from an external tool into an Align text area now performs much better when you edit that text within Align on Safari.
  • Adding a Top Task from a different user’s section in Huddles assigns it to that user, not the current user.
  • New Tasks created from within Huddles or the Dashboard cards appear right away, without requiring a page refresh.
  • Added better default field focus on several forms in the Web App.
  • Improved the Critical Number progress calculation to better handle ranges at the beginning of Periods.
  • Fixed bugs in the Outlook Task Integration when Tasks were created in Align with future or past due dates.
  • Fixed a Priority progress calculation error when a Rollup Parent’s Child progress type was switched from KPI to Task-Based or KPI to Rollup.



You are hitting your revenue ceiling.

But this doesn’t have to be the case. With Align you can get the whole company on the same page, remove shiny object syndrome and focus on the tasks that need to get done to grow your company. Fast.
