GitEye stores configuration data for the task board in the TeamForge project. TeamForge project administrators can configure the task board. Once that's done, projects members can use the task board.
To configure the task board, right-click the project and choose
Configure Task Board ....
The task board configuration screen appears.
Specify two trackers in the configuration:
Note: Alternatively, you can create two new trackers by providing their names.
- The main tracker that contains the artifacts that define your stories
- The tracker for the tasks that result from breaking down the stories
Configure the user interface for the task board.
Indicate which tracker field you want to use to specify the story
Typically, you would use either Story Points or Estimated
Enter the amount of work to do in the task.
We anticipate you would use the Remaining Effort field for this, but
you can choose any of the effort fields. The value you select controls
the number that shows on the story and task cards in the task board.
Select the statuses for your tasks and the order you want them displayed
as swim lanes.
We recommend you have 3 or 4 (maximum) statuses ordered from
left to right in the order that the task would progress; the last swim
lane would represent the "done" status. Tip: While we do not limit the number of statuses, the more you have, the less usable the task board becomes.
- Click Next.
- Indicate which tracker field you want to use to specify the story size. Typically, you would use either Story Points or Estimated Effort.
Specify templates to automatically create child tasks for a story.
Note: This step is optional. You can also configure templates by right-clicking the project and selecting Configure Task Board Templates....
- Click Finish.
