assign story to sprint from different backlog

Roger Stich hace 9 años actualizado por sam hace 5 años 8
I had to plan Sprints with input from different customers (customizations of one big product) so i want to setup an enviroment where different people can edit there own backlogs (and only there own backlogs) and i can take the userstorys from there and build a sprint with storys from different backlogs.

Hi Roger

As it stands, you cannot build sprints from other backlogs.  Whilst I can certainly see a use case for this, this is quite niche functionality and would change the product quite significantly in that sprints will be divorced from backlogs.  This would effect everything.  What you can do however is let people work in their backlogs, and then move their stories to a central backlog when they are ready.  This can be done by using the move theme feature (tool icon next to a theme).  You could then allocate each user read access to the central backlog, and full access to their individual backlogs.

Do you think that would achieve the same result?

I would like the ability to add tags to a story.

Bryan Oakley hace 9 años actualizado por Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) hace 9 años 2
We might have several stories spread across multiple themes that have to do with "reporting" or "training" or "editing". I would like to categorize my stories using such tags.

Hi Bryan

Thanks for the feedback.

Unfortunately I am really not clear what you are after.  Are you saying you want a story to belog to more than one theme?  And how are tags used?

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

Bryan P hace 6 años actualizado por Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) hace 6 años 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 hace 9 años actualizado por Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) hace 9 años 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 hace 8 años actualizado por Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) hace 8 años 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,

Allow to create Epics between Themes and User Stories

Felipe Victorio hace 10 meses actualizado por Phill hace 7 meses 1

As a product owner working with product backlogs, I usually work with three levels of specification: Themes, Epics and User Stories. This a very common way to structure a product backlog.

So, it would be great to be able to start a backlog only with Themes and Epics, and as the project evolves through backlog grooming of prioritized Epics, User Stories would start to be written.

Allow public read access to backlogs without login.

Daniel Nüst hace 7 años actualizado por Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) hace 7 años 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.

Respuesta

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 hace 8 años actualizado por Andrew Puddefoot hace 7 años 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.


Respuesta

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 hace 9 años actualizado por Rob Scott hace 6 años 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

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?
