Future releases and limitations
We're also removing some functionality from the new experience, as we believe some features weren't providing the full value that we had envisioned. If required in your plans, you can still use the removed functionality by opting out of the new experience.
Here are some of the features we're working on:
New features in the new experience
We're adding more ways for you to visually customize your plan, to make it just right for you and your audience. See Customizing view settings for more details.

In the new experience, this section isn't available anymore. If an issue is not scheduled as expected, you can manually reschedule the issue straight away.
This doesn't necessarily mean that the removal is final, nor does it mean that the functionality will be back in future releases. If you need the removed functionality in your plans, let us know via the give feedback button in your plan.
