How many times you had to add the same tasks again and again? How many times did you want your team to be consistent with subtasks? Of course, there is the definition of done that is an agreement about tasks you want to have in every story, but do you apply it in real life?
User Story template
User story templates significantly speed up the creation of consistent user stories.
The template is the prescription of new stories that can have following attributes set immediately once created:
- backlog item type,
- a color of a card,
- default title,
- default epic and theme,
- prioritization fields (MoSCoW, business value, risk, and KANO),
- default effort in story points,
- template for story description,
- default tags,
- and default subtasks defined by its type, color, time and title as well.
You can define default templates for defects, technical debts, research, or just stories for particular business theme or epic.
To add new story template click Templates in User story map, Backlog or Work view. There you can display template details by click on it or add a new one by click on + button.
Create new story from template
To create a new story from existing template just drag the template card from the list or double-click it. The newly created story will have all necessary attributes predefined from the template. With colors and tasks as well.
