Windows Azure Cloud
ScrumDesk supports cloud now! We are proud to be one of the first providers of Windows Azure cloud in Slovakia.
Usage of Windows Azure allows our client to host repositories in a highly reliable, scalable, and secure environment that provides great performance. Moreover, with Azure, you have two replicated repositories provided automatically.
To use a cloud database in Azure you need to just install it using database manager and then connect to the newly created repository in ScrumDesk. Nothing else is required.
And the best, Azure is supported for free from us. We do not ask for additional charges for it.
Issues can be filtered by the role of a team members. This feature allows focusing on issues that are really important for the user. It is possible to choose more roles at the same time.
Progress of checked-out tasks – tasks that are checked out should be updated daily. If they are not updated, then the fundamental principle of visibility is broken.
