Sprint Backlog View

/alh-optional
alh-optional:SprintAndKanban,OnlySprint

This view is a daily tool for the sprint team to keep track of the sprint progress.

Sprints can be enabled or altogether disabled from the Circle’s configuration in which case you will not be able to work with them anymore.

Stories with the highest priority have been added to the sprint in the Product Backlog view. The total effort estimate of the stories in the sprint must match the resources available in the sprint period. 

Each Team in a circle has its own tactical queues, zero to one set of Sprints (a series of non-overlapping lanes). 

The profile pictures of the individuals that a Story or Task has been assigned to will be shown on the card representing that specific Story or Task.

Tasks can be created directly in the lane a Story is in, using the icon.

Sprint Lanes

In this view, the team creates tasks for each user story. Sprint lanes run across columns representing the states “To Do”, “Progress” and “Done”. All stories with their tasks start in the “To Do” column. When a task implementation is initiated or finalized, it is moved to the next state column.

Kanban can be enabled or altogether disabled from the Circle’s configuration in which case you will not be able to work with it anymore.

Kanban is a lean method to manage and improve work across human systems. This approach aims to manage work by balancing demands with available capacity, and by improving the handling of system-level bottlenecks.

If created in the Product Backlog, Kanban lanes will automatically appear in the Kanban Board or right below the current selected Sprint lane in the case where the team is working with both Kanban and Sprints.
If there is more than one Kanban lane, it will be because the Team offers different classes of services, e.g. different workflows for different service requests.

The profile pictures of the individuals that a Story or Task has been assigned to will be shown on the card representing that specific Story or Task.

Tasks can be created directly in the lane a Story is in, using the icon.

Kanban Lanes

In this view, the team creates tasks for each user story. Kanban lanes run across columns representing the states “To Do”, “Progress” and “Done”, unless they have been configured to have one or more states (Kanban lane) . All stories with their tasks start in the “To Do” column. When a task’s implementation is initiated or finalized, it is moved to the next state column. The “Progress” column and any other added column states will have sub-states denoted with “DONE” to indicate completion in that state.

See Kanban lane for more details.

Impact Map

The Impact Map is available in the Sprint Backlog 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 Sprint Backlog, 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.

Keyboard Shortcuts

Enter key will open a modal window with the overview of the currently selected card.

Ctrl + E  loads the edit form for a selected item

Up and Down Arrow keys will select items up and down the left pane list as well as the main view, respectively.

Esc will close any open modal windows or forms.
