2014 April 27
by Neera Agarwal

We have added new features and usability improvements for Sprint and Release tracking in AgileWrap this week. We have split release notes in three blog posts for the sake of clarity. We will be discussing the improvements in sprint tracking in this post.

Tracking Sprint Backlog Items
Sprint backlog contains user stories and defects that are scheduled in the sprint. You can prioritize sprint backlog by ranking the items.  You can track the progress of a sprint backlog in Track>>Sprint>>Items tab using many new and enhanced features:

Sprint Backlog

Sprint Backlog

  1. View Filter: View filter allows you to filter Open Items, Non-Accepted Items, All Items, Items changed in last 7 days and Items changed in last 24 hours. An item is a user story or defect belonging to the sprint backlog. Open Items are entries with status as New, Defined, In Progress and Re-Open. Non-Accepted Items include all Open Items as well as items with status To Verify.
  2. Column Filters: Sprint backlog grid has now column level filters available. You can select filter values for multiple columns and view sprint backlog entries as per the chosen criteria. For example you can filter user stories by a particular keyword, status as In Progress and priority as Urgent.
  3. Group By: You can group sprint backlog items and track the progress of various groups. You can group sprint backlog items by Priority, Status, Parent user story and Item type.
  4. Add Task: For a highlighted user story, you can now add tasks to the story using Add Task link on the top right.
  5. In-line editing: You can make changes to a user story and defect using in-line editing.
  6. View and Edit an Item: You can click on View and Edit links for a user story (or defect) on the top right and view its detail. Further you can edit this item to update status, spent hours, comments etc.
  7. Priority column: We have placed Priority column next to Item Name in the grid.
  8. Saving Filters: AgileWrap now remembers filter values used last time and will use the same in the grid upon revisiting.

 

Tracking Sprint Tasks

Upon scrolling down on Track>>Sprint>>Items tab, you can use Sprint Tasks section to track tasks and defects for the sprint. You can track the progress of sprint tasks using similar features as above:

Sprint Tasks

Sprint Tasks

  1. View Filter: View filter allows you to track Open Tasks, Non-Accepted Tasks, All Tasks, Tasks changed in last 7 days and Tasks changed in last 24 hours. If you want to view defects along with tasks then check in Include Defects check box next to View filter. Open Tasks are the tasks with status New, Defined, In Progress and Re-Open. Non-Accepted Tasks include all Open Tasks as well as tasks in QA (with status To Verify).
  2. Column Filters: Tasks grid now has column filters available for all the columns. You can select filter values for multiple columns. For example you can filter and track all In Progress tasks for a particular member.
  3. Group By: You can now group tasks and track the progress. You can group tasks by Priority, Status, User story and Owner. For example you can group the tasks by owner and track status, spent hours and Todo hours of all of his tasks.
  4. In-line Editing: You can make changes to a task and defect using in-line editing.
  5. View and Edit Task Detail: You can view Task detail by clicking View and Edit links on top right. Further you can edit this task and update its status, spent hours, comments etc.
  6. Priority column: We have placed Priority column next to Item Name in the grid.
  7. Taskboard link: You can go to Track>>Taskboard tab for card view of the sprint using Go to Taskboard link on top right.
  8. Saving Filters: AgileWrap remembers filter values used last time and will use the same in the grid upon revisiting the page.
