How it Works
Plan and Work Seamlessly
From exec to developer, everyone shares one view. Collaborate at a fine-grained level, without losing sight of the bigger picture.
Stories are small, actionable components of work. The building blocks of every project. They’re easy to create, share, discuss and react to. A good story is understood by everyone on your team and describes something that can be verified and accepted by the customer.
The conversation around assigning points to a feature is often as important as the estimate itself. When points are determined based on the team’s estimation of how complex the feature will be to complete, they dial-in estimates that can help predict the future. This achieves the goal of steady velocity with low volatility.
Drag stories that are ready for prioritization to your backlog from the icebox, so they can flow into the current iteration according to your velocity. Clicking Start moves the story toward the top of the current iteration, which shows it’s being worked on. The story then moves through the steps from finished to delivered and is accepted or rejected by the customer.
Drop a release marker into your backlog to stay on track for any milestones. The markers are color-coded to help you hone in on your deadline. Dark blue indicates the release is in progress or complete and red indicates the release is in danger of falling behind schedule.
Organize your stories into epics to build a bigger roadmap the entire team can see. At a glance, you can determine an epic’s real-time progress. They’re also great for sharing assets, discussions, and mock-ups that span multiple stories.
Based on your preferences, receive updates on specific stories and projects in the app or in your email.
Ideal for retrospectives, charts show historical trends and burndowns for anything and everything you’d like to monitor. Use them to spot process patterns or bottlenecks, and trigger a needed discussion. Trend lines don’t lie; they illustrate where you’ve been to help you visualize where you need to go.
This is where teams focus on what’s important. Move stories up and down to set priorities. Establish milestones. Create epics to plan and manage the big picture.
