Clone Backlog Item

What is a clone?

Sometimes your backlog items have very similar descriptions and similar tasks. It is quite boring to retype such backlog items over and over.

Clone of the backlog item is handy in this situation:

  • All backlog item details are copied into the new backlog item.
  • All tasks are copied as well.
  • The status of the backlog item and the status of all its tasks will be set to Todo.
  • ‘CLONED’ text will be added to the title of the clone.
  • The clone will be automatically assigned to the same sprint and release so you can find it quickly.
