Agile Board

The Agile Board provides a landing page from where you can access the key areas of the standard scrum processes.

Information on the Agile Board is organized in the following tabs:

Analytics

The Analytics tab enables you to apply analytics to evaluate estimated work versus actual work in a release or a sprint. You can verify whether an assignment group is completing stories and on track to achieve the sprint or release goal.

Backlog

The Backlog tab enables you to plan and prioritize stories in a personalized backlog. You can:
  • Create stories, epics, and themes.
  • Reorder stories in the backlog using the drag feature. The story at the top of the backlog assumes higher priority with a lesser rank value. The story at the bottom of the backlog assumes lower priority with a higher rank value.
  • Group stories by epic or the following categories: all stories, stories without estimation, and stories without acceptance criteria.
  • Edit the existing filter criteria of the backlog.
  • Type a keyword in the search box to view only stories whose details match with the keyword.

Sprint Planning

The Sprint Planning tab enables you to plan and prioritize stories for a sprint or multiple sprints by assessing stories in the backlog. You can:
  • Create, organize, monitor, start, and complete sprints.
  • View current and future sprints in chronological order.
  • View these key aspects of a sprint: planned start and end dates, story points, percentage group velocity, number of story points (total, complete, and pending) for the current sprint.
  • Assess stories in the backlog and drag them to sprints.
  • Add stories to the backlog and set up their order of implementation. The story at the top of the backlog assumes higher priority with a lesser rank. The story at the bottom of the backlog assumes lower priority with a higher rank.
  • Move unfinished stories from the completed sprint to the backlog or a future sprint.

Sprint Tracking

The Sprint Tracking tab enables you to track the sprint progress in a board or list view.
Board
Board is built on visual task boards, which transform the navigation of lists and forms into an interactive graphical experience. The visual task board interface provides a graphic-rich environment suited for managing and collaborating records. To know more about the actions that can be performed in the board, see visual task boards. You can:
  • Track all the stories of current sprint across lanes.
  • Move a record from one lane to another, which in turn updates the state of the record.
  • Filter records based on search criteria.

List
List displays scrum tasks and tests associated to stories in each sprint. In the List view, you can:
  • Add scrum task and tests without leaving the context of the record.
  • View the state, short description, and assignee of the scrum task without drilling down into details.
  • View the short description and run result of a test.
  • Assess scrum tasks and tests that are pending before the closure of current sprint.
