In the Storymap view, all the items in the Storymap Tree are shown top-down, starting from the Circle. You may choose to show only part of the tree by selecting from the dropdown menu at the top left corner of the pane. If you want to show tree sections stemming from a specific card downwards then click on the card to make it current. The card will then appear in the selection menu at the top.
Three panes are available in the Storymap view. Having these three panes enables easy access to different sections of the Storymap in the same view, which can be very useful for performing tasks such as creating relations between card or even moving cards around the tree by dragging them; see example in screendump below:
A relation could for example be that a story is part of a sprint. The relation is shown as a line between the story and the sprint cards. You can hide or show different types of relations from the View menu at the top.
Details on the relations can be accessed here.
The Impact Map is available in the Storymap to give a quick overview of the impact a specific story or other item has, such as when and where it is planned, what it solves or what depends on it.
It shows the card centered and all the other items impacted by it, suspended around it as can be seen in the snippet below:
To see the Impact Map of a particular story or any other item in the Story Map, right click its card and there should be a menu item to do that.
Once open, the details of any of the cards can be seen by clicking to select and then unfolding the right pane.
To close the Impact Map, click anywhere outside the cards on display.
Delegating to Other Circles
Delegation can be done when the Circle is part of an organization that has multiple teams working in different Circles i.e. with individual product backlogs, and work needs to be shared between them. Epics, Stories, Issues and Ideas can be delegated to and from Circles, from their context menu accessible via right click or menu icon. The only requirement is that connection between the Circles should have been established in the Circle Map. More on delegation here.
Enter key will open a modal window with the overview of the currently selected card.
Alt key held down and drag from one card to another, except from Releases/Milestones, creates a relation between them.
Up, Down, Right and Left arrow keys switch selected items, respectively.
Esc will close any open modal windows or forms.
