You can now search for your work items directly at the top of PaceMkr.
The toolbar got some love also. In the image below, the label for the dates has been cleaned up and a Load File button is now shown when you are working with Excel or Csv files.
When you have too much data
PaceMkr introduces a search bar at the top to quickly find a work item. When you work with large data sets, you might be looking for a specific work item. Instead of going back to your Agile project management system to find the item, you can simply search for it in PaceMkr.
PaceMkr will tell you when it was completed, if it's still active or even invalid if the dates were backwards for a work item.
