Task board

The task board displays:
  • Stories: The editable story objects for the selected sprint appear in the left pane named Stories. You can edit these story objects directly with the procedures found in Manage story objects.
  • Tasks: To the right of each story object, in the same row, are task objects related to the story. Each card in the right pane on the task board represents a task, which occupies a position in a State column. Each column in the right pane represents a state through which a task moves in the sprint.

    The fields and icons on the task objects help to indicate the status of a task.
