Release Notes: 3-Feb-2013

[ Edited ]

The following features have been added to Agile Manager:

  • Backlog Items Auto-Ranking 
  • Import Backlog 
  • Associate Defects with Features and Themes

 

Backlog Items Auto-Ranking

Agile Manager provides you with an automatic ranking tool that ranks all the backlog items according to their position in the grid.

  • To view the backlog ranking, click the Rank column header. The backlog is sorted from highest to lowest rank. Initially, backlog items are ranked in the order in which they were created. To reverse the sort order, click the Rank column header again.
  • To change an item's rank, drag the item up or down the grid. Alternatively, enter a number in the Rank field to change an item's rank. Other items are automatically shifted up or down grid and re-ranked accordingly.

With auto-ranking, backlog items do not have a fixed rank number: in any grid, the items are ranked consecutively from 1 to [no. of items in the grid].

 

Upgrade

If you had previously set ranks manually for backlog items, after your project is upgraded, the following will occur:

  • The entire backlog will be ranked consecutively from 1 to [no. of items in the grid].
  • Previously ranked items will retain their relative position.
  • Backlog items that were assigned the same rank will be ranked consecutively.
  • Non-ranked items will be ranked below the ranked items.

Import Backlog

You can now import user stories and defects to the product backlog from an Excel or CSV file.

Use the attached template file to assist you in creating compatible backlog files.

Associate Defects with Features and Themes

Previously, only user stories could be linked to features and themes. Now, you can associate aslo defects with features and themes. This provides you with a more accurate picture of the overall size and progress of features and themes, and allows you to plan work on defects according to their content area.

 

ALI

Previously, when viewing the details of a user story or defect, you could view the associated code changes and contributing developers. Now, you can view also details of unit tests and code coverage for the item.
