Move a story between themes

Michael Terkowski 9 years ago updated by Matthew O'Riordan (Founder) 9 years ago 6
As a user I would like to drag and drop a single story and move it from one theme to another, so I can manage and rearrange my themes effectively.

Right now the only way to do is to retype the entire story. This feature will also be useful in conjunction with the "copy story" feature, because it allow us to use a story as a template for several themes.

Hi Michael

We have now implemented drag and drop for stories between themes.

You can however still click on the move icon on a story and it will allow you to move it to another theme.  

Thanks,
Matt

Hi Michael

If you click on the move icon on a story, it will allow you to move it to another theme.  We will re-allow moving of stories between themes just by dragging, but users actually asked for this move function on click as they felt dragging a story around in a long page was impractical.

Does this solve your problem?

Hi Matt,

I t hink that drag and drop is very intuitive. Some of our users were confused when they tried to organize the backlog. It does seem faster then the "move dialog". In our case, the product owner was wanting to combine themes together so he would just order the themes next to each other and drag from one to the other.

Another usage is to split big themes into smaller themes. With drag and drop it is very intiuitive. For us it would feel a bit clunky to go through a dialog.
Ok, well we'll be reintroducing the drag & drop between themes shortly, and in the mean time I hope clicking the move icon will do the job.
Click to move...ahhh got it! Took me a  minute but it makes sense to do it this way.


Part of the trouble I had was the help bubble is partially covered up by another bubble that says "undefined". example http://screencast.com/t/1SiS4CFwH8Ng 

Hi Treblin

I agree, the usability of the move button is not great, we'll be improving that shortly.

Unfortunately that link you sent does not work, mind sending it again as I'd like to get that issue fixed ASAP.

Sorry, one last question, what browser and operating system are you using?
