Move stories from the product backlog to release backlog

You can move stories between the product and release backlogs by using the planning board.

  1. Navigate to Agile Development > Planning > Planning Board.
  2. In the left pane context menu, select Product backlog and then select the name of the backlog to display.

    The stories from that backlog appear in the left pane.

  3. Open the same context menu again and select Backlog only to display only those stories not yet moved from the product backlog to a release. Deselect Backlog only to show all the stories in the product backlog, including those already moved to a release backlog.
  4. In the right pane context menu, select Release backlog and then select the name of the backlog to display.
  5. Click the icon beside a story number in the product backlog (left pane) and drag the story to any location in the release backlog (right pane).
  6. Drag the story to any position in the list using the same icon.

    You can use this feature to rank stories in a backlog by importance.

  7. To move all the stories at once, click the Drag all icon at the bottom of the pane.
  8. To access the story progress board or the task progress board, select the appropriate option from a context menu opened from one of these locations:
    • Right-click a story in either pane.
    • Click the arrow in the backlog title of either pane.
  9. To edit the Release form, click the arrow in the Release Backlog title in the right pane and select Edit Release.
