Sprint 10 – 3/1/2020 – 3/31/2020

Primary focuses were Creating Custom Portals and Performance Enhancements. With these changes, a user can customize the online catalog (colors, landing page, and what objects and filters are shown). We have also improved performance and load times and implemented infinite scrolling to improve the user experience. Finally, we imported all of the data from the new Public Goods repository, including new products (and logos) and associations with organizations.

This month, we tracked 213 actual hours against these tasks. The tracking may still be incomplete.
