In Step 3 we will define story templates according to company process requirements. If your process is not requiring precisely defined steps, go directly to Step 4.
Are story templates required? No. But they are great when you have defined the required development process steps. This is the typical case for enterprise companies. On the other side, templates are a time saver for even smaller teams.
Let’s create a Feature request template and a bug template.
Defining new templates
Login to the ScrumDesk as a Scrum Master. Then switch to the Project homepage and click on the Templates tab.
At first, we will create Bug Template. Click New. A new template with the default name will be created. Now define template:
- template name – enter text Bug
- template description – enter
- color – choose red
- tasks required by your process and the estimated time required to solve the task. To enter tasks, click on the Tasks label in the template card
- Bug analyze
- Unit test
Now we will create two other templates, one for Feature and one for the Risk.
Create new stories by template
To create new stories based on templates switch to project backlog or sprint view. Click on the small arrow under the New menu item.
Now click on a template from the selector.
A new story based on a template will be created in the center of the screen.
Now it’s time to write a story name, a description, a priority, assign a category, and check tasks and their duration.
And this is a quickly finished new story.
Templates make creating new stories much easier. Templates also fulfill company process requirements.
