Filter in-progress stories from backlog

Michael Terkowski 9 aastat tagasi uuendaja Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 9 aastat tagasi 1
As a product owner, I want to be able to filter our stories that are already assigned to a sprint (and are not done yet), so that I could focus only on the stories that need prioritization or grooming.

Right now, the stories that are in progress are mixed in with the stories that are not started yet (in the backlog), making it hard to see what stories we need to prioritize. A filter, like the one we have to hide completed stories, will be very useful.

Hi Michael

Good news, you can now filter stories by either being completed, or by being assigned to a sprint.  Take a look under the Filter menu in your backlog.

Shout if you run into any issues.  Hope that solves your problem.

Need total backlog

Tony BenBrahim 7 aastat tagasi uuendaja Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 7 aastat tagasi 1

Completed items are no longer backlog, so if the program is going to show only one number, it should be the size of the backlog (not including accepted items). 

As a workaound, I will need to delete accepted items to get a correct number for my backlog (some have hundreds of items, if I have to export to Excel and filter to get a total backlog, it is no longer an easy backlog :-)

Hi Tony


To be honest, I completely agree it should work like this.  At present this is not the way the system works, but it something we will implement soon.

Burndown needed for the active sprint

Simon Poole 6 aastat tagasi 0
It would be useful to have a live burndown/burnup chart for the active sprint.

Normally in Scrum, the burndown chart is updated daily and visible to the team during the course of the sprint.  It's used by the team and the scrum master so they can see if they are going off track.

quick search in sprint view

Roger Stich 8 aastat tagasi uuendaja Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 8 aastat tagasi 0
Hi,

it would be cool if i could use a quick search in the sprint view.

The Task i want to achieve is that i have a Story which i know very exactly (ID and the Text of the Story also, even aceptance criterias i know) because i took that story from another sprint.
Then i switched to the new sprint and have an enormous list of storys to the right.
Know i have 2 ways to find my story:
1. i scroll through the list but its a very very long list.....
2. i switch to backlog view and then pick the story from there

if i have an quick search in the sprint view it would be way easier.

Hi Roger


We agree completely, we need a search for larger backlogs.  It is something we are working on.  I will drop you a line as soon as we have something you can use.


Thanks for the feedback, and we'll do our best to get something out there for you.

export xls

Michael Worobcuk 6 aastat tagasi uuendaja Michael Wegmüller 3 nädalat tagasi 5
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.

Ability to split a story

Craig C 9 aastat tagasi uuendaja Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 9 aastat tagasi 1
As a product owner, I want to split a large story into several smaller stories so that the stories can fit better into the iterations
Vasta

Hi Craig

Thanks for the feedback.

In order to see if we can help you, can you explain at what point you split stories.  And when you split stories, what happens to the story you have split, is it disregarded?  I have spoken with a few users who have this need, and they say the normally add a new story and simply reduce the scope of the existing epic.  Does this not work for you?  If not, please explain your process and let me see what we can do.

Add notes/comments for a theme

Michael Terkowski 9 aastat tagasi uuendaja Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 8 aastat tagasi 2
As a product owner, I would like to add notes/comments to a theme, so that I could better communicate specific issues or background information that relates to a theme.

As a user, I want to be able to view any additional information that a theme may have, so that I could understand better the background and motivation for the theme.

Sometimes, a group of stories has one common information that we want to capture, or notes about its priorities or motivation.

Idea: The notes/comments field doesn't have to be visibile. It can easily be an icon that opens a pop up. It is not an information that is required for grooming the backlog, but probably only visible on request when the user needs it.

Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 9 aastat tagasi
We can understand the value of this, but we are actually trying to simplify the interface at present, and we are concerned that adding more icons will in fact complicate things.  Let us have a think about how, and if, we can accomodate this feature.  We'll update this ticket when this feature along with the other GUI improvements are in the current sprint.

It woudl be good to have a Release Version field

-7778 9 aastat tagasi uuendaja Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 8 aastat tagasi 10
It would be good to be able to assign a story to a release tag, which can be just a text field. For example, it can be used to plan release 1.1 vs 1.2 or core release vs customer specific one. The backlog could then be sorted using this field.
Vasta
Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 9 aastat tagasi
Hi there

We are a bit reluctant to add more fields to the interface as it's already pretty crowded as it is.  However, saying that, a few people have been asking about a separate priority field, which perhaps could have a dual purpose of release / priority, which you could then sort by.  Can you explain a little more about how you use this release field so I can understand the process?

performance getting slow

Michael Terkowski 8 aastat tagasi uuendaja Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 7 aastat tagasi 7
The performance of the app seems to deteriorate over time. When we first starting using easy-backlog in January, it was snappy and fast, and nowadays I'm getting lots of complaints from users in our teams that the tool is sluggy and slow, increasing resistance to using it.

Hi Roger, Michael and Torsten


We did a major deployment today, and we came across an error that was causing failed requests with Roger.  It turns out that his backlog was taking just under 6 seconds to render on the server, which is completely unacceptable.


Because of the urgency of this, we've devoted a fair amount of time today to finding a solution, and we've released some updates today that have brought that rendering time down to around 1.5s, so a 4x performance improvement.  Whilst this is good, this is not good enough, and we'll be working to improve that even further.


Obviously there is client-side rendering performance as well, and we'll be considering Torsten's suggestions here too, to ensure the performance remains snappy even when working with large backlogs.


Sorry for the problems, and hopefully we'll have it lightning fast again even for our heavier users.  I expect you'll notice the performance improvements already.


Thanks,

Matt

Add background colour to themes

Martin Georgiev 9 aastat tagasi uuendaja Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 9 aastat tagasi 1
It will be handy if you set the bg color for a whole theme so you don't have to set the colour for individual stories 
Vasta
Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 9 aastat tagasi
Ok, will look into this.
Can you tell me though, would you want the colour selection to simply colour all the child stories, or would it actually colour the whole theme?  If it coloured the whole theme, would child stories still be able to have their own colours as well?  Do you think this will be work and be useful?
