Note: This feature is currently available for invited participants in our private beta.

We are introducing a new high-performant and flexible board, the Grid. With this new Grid, you can easily visualize and manage the connections between Objectives, Initiatives, and Features, so that your team can connect the dots between their work and the high-level strategy. **Our goal is to improve the Grid further so it will support all key use-cases of the existing Features board and much more!
