Edit Data?

Brian Gibson 7 years ago updated by Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 7 years ago 4

I would like to be able to adjust some history and delete/trim

snapshots to clean up Stats page and make it more meaningful.

Is this possible? I have not found a way to edit/delete info.

It took me some time to finally enter my information correctly in my backlog/sprints. The problem is that I have history and snapshots that are not accurate.


Hi Brian

Unfortunately I am really not sure what you are trying to do.

Can you please explain what you mean be history?  Or preferably, explain what your objective is and I will see if I can explain how it is done with easyBacklog.




Mobile App: can i use 'EasyBacklog' as part of project name?

Josef Biehler 6 years ago updated by Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 6 years ago 1
currently i am trying to build a mobile app using phonegap and some libs.

Now i wanted to know whether i can use the name 'EasyBacklog' as part of the project name?

For those who are interested:
Testbuilds (currently not working on travisci):

Also i wanted to know if i can use your logo as part of a logo for that app?
Hi Josef

Apologies for not getting back to you sooner, I have been on holiday.

This is fantastic that you are building an app to plug into easyBacklog.  I am more than happy for you to use the easyBacklog name so long as you state it's not the official app.  I suppose I am just concerned from a liability perspective that if it is not use actually building it, then it's important everyone knows that.  Is that OK?

BTW. If you need any help with the APIs please shout.

Popups don't seem to work in Chrome

Ephrat Bitton 8 years ago updated by Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 8 years ago 0
Can't add sprint, etc. in Chrome
Hi Ephrat

What problem exactly are you experiencing?  We have lots of people adding sprints daily across various browsers including Chrome, and I have just tested it myself on Chrome too and it works.

Please could you give me some more information such as which backlog ID (it's in the URL), which OS you are on, describe the steps you are taking to cause this problem?


Thank you!

I want to say thank you for such an cool Tool.
Its so simple and powerfull that i have no problems with introducing it to our development process, really amazing.

Another point i want to thynk you is that quick feedback/support in here, that makes me feel good as a customer!

sorting of userstory

Roger Stich 7 years ago updated by Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 7 years ago 2

actually i tried to move multiple storys between sprints.
To achieve this i was in the sprint view in my sprint 36.
I took a story and removed it from that sprint.
Then i switched to sprint 35 and tried to add the story.

What happens was that this Story was somewhere in the list of all user stories. Not at the top but somewhere inbetween.
I started to search for that story which is annoying especially when i know that i had to do this for 5 more storys.
I found out that you sort the storys per Theme, and this particular story was somewhere in the middle.

im not sure how to solve that really well. Solutions which sounds well for me are:
- make it possible to move storys between sprints even in sprint view.
- make it possible to move multiple storys between sprints even in sprint view.
- make it possible to search for storys in sprint view (search in unassigned storys) searching for Story ID would be enough for me.

Just a few rough ideas




Hi Roger

We did actually consider the idea of letting you drag a story directly onto a sprint tab, thus allowing you to move stories directly between sprints.  Do you think that would be a) useful, and b) obvious to users.  My gut feeling tells me that it would fail on b)

I agree search would be useful here, we will see if we can add a simple keyword filter.



Add South African locale (ZAR)

Danny Kopping 8 years ago updated by Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 8 years ago 5
Don't leave the starving Africans out :)
Our currency (Rand) is represented by the code "ZAR" and the symbol is "R"

For example, "R10"
Ok Danny, no problem, I will add that in.  It's the least I could considering I was born there!

"Move to top" feature for backlog grooming

Bryan P 5 years ago updated by Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 5 years ago 1
Drag and drop is slow and makes it unweidly to manage larger backlogs. Ideally we'd like to put the highest priority items near the top, but doing so is prohibitively slow with large backlogs. A button or tool menu item to move a story to the top would greatly streamline the grooming process.

I want to insert multiple 'markers' or thick black lines in the Backlog (with label), so i can visually seperate groups of Stories (typically between sprints)

Jason Kaehler 8 years ago updated by Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 8 years ago 0
its hard to tell where one sprint starts and the next begins when the Backlog gets 100+ stories in it.  Some kind of markers to seperate (and even "tuck away)' groups of Stories in Backlog would be great!
Hi Jason

Thanks for the feedback.

Themes are already visually separated by the grey total bars and the white space beneath each.   

We are considering adding a collapse story feature, which may help with your "tucking away" idea.

Unfortunately it's quite difficult to see exactly what we could to address your problem, however we have scheduled in a design review of the entire interface so we will take on board your feedback.

I would like to be able to collapse stories

Bryan Oakley 8 years ago updated by Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 8 years ago 3
I want to be able to collapse stories into a single line. Another suggestion in this forum is asking for a name and/or title which would serve this purpose. However, adding a name and/or title adds to the complexity.

Here's what I suggest: allow me to highlight part of the story with simple markup, such as:

    "as a X I want a *graphical test runner* blah blah blah"
    "as a Y I want an *html report* blah blah blah

In the UI, everything between the asterisks becomes bolded, and there's a tool that collapses all my stories so that all I see are the bolded parts, one per line. For example, a collapses view would like like:

theme: improve tools
   graphical test runner
   html report
   syntax checker

Hi Bryan

Thanks for the feedback.

Whilst I like your solution, I think it adds a level of complexity that would require training / explanation for users which we're trying to avoid.

As an alternative, assuming you collapsed a story, and all the criteria and comments were hidden, and the user story part was changed to remove all line breaks and shown in the format "As a XXX, I want to YYY, So I can ZZZ", would that achieve what you are after?

Also, assuming you collapsed a story, would you expect the backlog to remember which stories were collapsed when you return to the backlog, or would it be sufficient that these collapses are remembered only for the session you are in?  The latter way is how theme collapsing currently works.


Group Users by Company

Joshua Pekera 7 years ago updated by Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 7 years ago 0

As an Admin 

I want to assign users to a company

So I can view all users and see what company they are with


Hi Joshua

Can you be a bit more explicit about what you are expecting to see please, and what the problem is?
