Working with roadmap, planning and expected work periods in Agemba has now become much more smooth.
Items in roadmap are now represented with cards showing the actual expected work period as the width of the card. Milestones (which are a single point in time, not a period) are shown as icons, not cards.
Setting Expected Work Period
You can now set an expected work period for stories and epics – not just the ones you have chosen to show in Roadmap. This expected work period can then be held up against the actual planning to sprints or kanban and can help you to double check your planning and time constraints with the aid of system warnings and the timeline overview in Outline.
The expected work period is ensured by the system to be the same for delegated stories in both circles, and can therefore be used to coordinate and communicate to each other when work is expected to start and end. This is in particular helpful if strategic epics in Roadmap are delegated to another circle: the position in Roadmap will reflect the actual expected work period even if it changes later on.
Kanban Planned Lead Time
You can now choose to set a “planned lead time” in days for each of your Kanban lanes. Items put in Kanban will then have a planned start date for when it was added to Kanban – and a planned end date X days later matching the planned lead time.
Drag Multiple Cards in Product Backlog
It is now possible to select multiple cards in the left pane in Product Backlog and drag them into a Release/Sprint/Milestone/Kanban lane/Collection. The general “look-and-feel” for dragging cards has also been improved.
As always, if you have any questions, then please feel free to contact the support team.
