Project Tasks section

Adam Shallcross 9 years ago updated by Rob Scott 6 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

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?

Hi Matt

Yeah I think that would be fine to be honest.

Just the ability to have a theme that was something like 'Extra Project Items' or something.

In which you can have some tasks like set up server, dev envinronment, deploy to live etc etc that have time/money associated to them.

So the option to add a story that didn't have the 'As a..' format would be ideal.

Great, well we will have a solution for that in a future release.  I'll drop you a line when the feature goes live.
I wouldn't do this. It seems like it's mixing tech ops concerns with backlog concerns. On the other hand, I see the point about the cost issues.
