Taskboard

Taskboard displays sprint user stories and tasks as a kanban board. Kanban board is split into more swim lines according to the status. Colors of the swim lines are displayed based on the project settings (Project/Options).

ScrumDesk task board allows changing the status of a task by drag and drop.

Users can find useful statistic information for a story and for tasks as well. User stories can be sorted by different attributes by selection from the list displayed after a click on Sorting button in the top left the corner.

Taskboard can be zoomed using zoom slider. Zoom allows display even big number of tasks.

Detail of a story or a task is displayed by double-click on an index card.

Taskboard allows add and delete tasks. Cards can be maximized or minimized hence provide more space to display more cards.

To change a status of the task user should drag the card into given column representing status. Some transitions are not possible due toScrumm principles and in this case, user is informed about that. The correct workflow is:

  • ToDo->Checked Out
  • Check Out ->Solved or Check Out->Done

Treemap

A unique feature of ScrumDesk helps to manage large backlogs. Treemap display style displays all stories in the view as a rectangle.

The size of the rectangle depends on one selected story’s attribute while color depends on another. In advance, stories can be grouped together. This brings three dimensions to work with a backlog.

Treemap is the best way how to analyze backlog and find answers for questions like:

  • Are stories developed according to priority?
  • Are developers getting things done correctly?
  • Are stories slotted into sprints and releases correctly?
