Kanban Portal changes

Jul 6, 2012 at 6:33 PM

The template is great but it is using the basic Agile poral part of which is broken because there is no concept of user story in this Kanban template.

I was wondering if any effort is underway to modify the process template to use the new feature and site template for Kanban portal that uses card work item type

Hi Karta717,

Thanks for your feedback.

When we were designing the kanban process template, we were going to have User Stories as the "card" WIT. When we discussed this, we decided that we didn't want to have the a too specific backlog item. Some people use User Stories, others use Product Backlog Item, others use Feature etc...

We decided to use a process-agnostic term to represent what got displayed on the board - hence "Card".

The intention was that you would customise the fields on the Card WIT.

We've had similar feedback from others.

Would you prefer we made the Card a User Story (from MSF for Agile)? Or some other type?

Thanks again,

adam
