After the project is created it should be configured.
ScrumDesk allows Scrum Master to assign a name in Project page. Except that ScrumMaster can describe the project in Description edit line to provide general information about the project to other people in a company.
ScrumDesk provides a way to visually distinguish the project in projects list by logo.
More information about project, contract, meeting notes etc. can be attached in form of documents in Attachments list. This can be a documentation source available to all team members even if they are distributed as files could be stored in ScrumDesk database. Another option is to keep them located in shared drive and save only the link to them.
When new sprint is created Default sprint length is used. Agile teams typically agree on the sprint length with product owner. Typical length of the sprint are 10 working days.
Project can be marked as private/public. Private project is displayed in project list only to team members assigned to the project. Public projects are available for anyone able to login to ScrumDesk. This way you can provide visibility of current development to anyone interested in.
Teams can be hierarchically organized in the structure. Every team member can be assigned to one team only. Team member can have a picture, name and role. Except standard scrum roles (scrum master, product owner, team member), ScrumDesk provides possibility to include visitors into the team. Visitor is typically stakeholder or manager. She is allowed to see all information but she is not able to change them.
Team member tile can be dragged to team to assign it. Sub-teams can be reorganized by drag and drop as well. Team members can be listed in table after Grid link is clicked.
