Create tasks

Teams perform tasks to deliver a backlog item. Tasks are all the work the team must complete to accept the story as done.

To create a task:

  1. Select Team from the left menu bar.
  2. Under the Team section of the menu bar, select Stories; the Story page displays.
  3. Select the necessary story from the Story grid.
  4. On the Story slide-out panel, under Tasks, add a task’s name, select a type, an owner, and a state of a task, and then type the number of effort hours for this task.
  5. Click Save & Close.

Note: Add at least two tasks to each story to create a proper hierarchy.

You can configure custom fields on tasks to better suit your needs and establish a more comprehensive work process. You can control what fields are required and what fields to display in slide-out panels. Admins may access Details Panels Settings to configure default and custom fields.
