Points not up-to-date in sprint view (for asigned stories)

Bryan P 3 years ago • updated by Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 3 years ago 1
All to often user stories assigned to sprints show as zero points, even if points have been assigned in the backlog. The sprint summaries (total points) work, just not the story by story points.

Typically this problem seems to affect new user stories recently added since the sprint was crated and populated.

Themes should be tags

Barrett Cook 6 years ago • updated by Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 6 years ago 3
Themes affect the sorted priority of the backlog when planning for the next sprint.

It would be nice to group by tags, without affecting the ordering of PBI.

Hi Barrrett

I'm not sure I completely understand what you are asking for.  As you have said, currently stories are grouped under theme, so the theme ordering takes precedence over story ordering.  We are in fact considering an alternative view where you can order stories independently of themes, but we've not consolidated how this will work yet, so have not implemented this.  We are working on a solution though, so we will keep you posted on this.  You can see the discussion on this at http://easybacklog.userecho.com/topic/94379-drag-and-drop-ranking-of-backlog-independent-of-themes-eg-t1s1-t2s2-etc/

However, could you elaborate on what you mean by using tags so that I can understand that requirement?

All stories list 0 points when assigning to sprint

Josh Fee 5 years ago • updated by Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 5 years ago 0
I just created my first sprint and after adding a few stories, the rest of them listed the points as 0. I went back to the backlog to verify that they had points listed, then back to the sprint where it was still listed as 0.

Refreshing the page fixed this.

Hi Josh

I've tried replicating this issue without luck.  Would you mind providing me with steps I can follow to recreate this issue, and could you also tell me what OS and browser you are using please?

Thanks,
Matt

export xls

Michael Worobcuk 3 years ago • updated by Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 3 years ago 4
Hi,
I am new to this site. easyBacklog does look very good to me, and seemd to be the solution that I need, However, I cannot open the .xls file that comes with the export. I am using libre office 4.2.4.2. I also tried on google docs.
What I am trieing to achive, is that I want a complete list of backlog items I can then print and put in my teamroom, so that everybody can see the backlog.

Allow public read access to backlogs without login.

Daniel Nüst 4 years ago • updated by Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 4 years ago 4

I develop an open source project and want to make the backlog available to all interested users of the software. For that a read-only version of the backlog that can be read without login would be great.

Answer

That's an interesting idea Daniel.  We've not had many people ask for this to date.  You could achieve this using our API, however this would of course require some development work on your end.  We'll consider the idea, however quite honestly unless more people ask for it it will be low on our priority list.

Select stories to print

Louis van der Stam 5 years ago • updated by Andrew Puddefoot 4 years ago 2
When printing stories to use in the planning phase, it would be nice to have the option to indicate which stories to print. The option to select stories to print based on the theme they belong to results in too many stories being printed. For us this was an issue when we updated a few stories in a theme and wanted to print only those.


Answer

Thanks for the suggestion.


Would it help if you could just print individual stories as that may be easier & quicker to implement, or do you think that would not really solve the problem as you need to print a few stories in a batch?  The problem with printing one at a time is it would be quite a waste of paper.


Thanks,
Matt

Project Tasks section

Adam Shallcross 6 years ago • updated by Rob Scott 3 years ago 4
It would be useful to have a section that allows you to add tasks that are kind of outside user stories.

So things like 
  • Setup development environment
  • Install Software
  • etc etc
It would be good to allocate time/cost to these also so they are not forgotten about when a client views the system as an overall cost for the project.

Cheers

Adam
Answer
Hey Adam

We are in fact thinking about allowing people to add tasks that are not following the strict "As a.." format, so these could be used for tasks outside of user stories.  Other than supporting a non "As a.." format, do you think you would need anything else, or would that suffice?

Changes to Sprint start date not being captured

Neil K 3 years ago 0
Via Settings I changed the 'Sprint start date' and clicked 'Update Sprint settings' but the changes are not taking affect. When I return the 'Sprint start date' is always todays date. This is impacting capturing additional sprints.

FYI: I had marked the sprint as complete by mistake just in case this is the cause
