Feature - Slack Improvments

  1. Contextual buttons added to the Slack message to easily kick off a FireHydrant incident

  3. Fallback text for notifications - no more “this content cannot be displayed”
  4. ‘/fh assign team’ - Assign Team Command opens detailed modal
  5. ‘/fh start retro` command - Running this command will open a modal that will allow for an update of the incident metadata while kicking off a retrospective.

Feature - Team Assignment Updates

  1. Filter incidents by assigned team using the API
  2. Metrics on a team basis - We can now allow for filtering analytics data based on a team being assigned to an incident

Bug Fixed - Updating an incident’s impact will no longer post empty messages to Slack when there were no changes

Notice Retrospective Layout Updated to display incident description and customer impact prominently at the top of the retro
