Stories Pane

Last update: Edit

1 Introduction

For version control enabled projects (projects with Team Server or other SVN servers), the Stories pane displays the stories and tasks of the current Sprint. Stories, tasks, and sprints are created and managed in the Developer Portal. For more information on stories, see Stories. For more information on tasks, see the Adding Tasks to a Story section in Stories.

In the Stories pane, you can view the stories and tasks of the current sprint, show or hide done stories, open their details, change the status of the stories and tasks, and open documents connected to stories.

The Stories pane consists of the top bar with various buttons and a table:

Stories Pane Example

The table contains following columns:

  • Story – shows a list of stories
    • Tasks are displayed as a sub-list of the corresponding story
  • Status – shows the status of a story or a task

2 Interacting with the Stories Pane

You can perform the following actions in the Stories pane:

2.1 Refreshing the Stories Pane

The Refresh button allows you to get the latest changes on stories and tasks done by you and your team members in the the Developer Portal or Studio Pro.

If two team members change the same story, the changes done last will take effect. For example, you set the story status to Running, but your colleague sets it to Done two minutes later. The story’s status will be set to Done when you click Refresh, as your colleague was the last one to implement changes.

2.2 Viewing Details

To view details of a story, do one of the following:

  • Double-click it in the table
  • Select the story in the table and click the Details button in the top bar

A plus icon next to a story means it has tasks assigned to it. To view details of a task, click the plus icon and do one of the following:

  • Double-click the task in the table
  • Select the task in the table and click the Details button in the top bar

When you view the details of a story or task, the Story Details pop-up window is opened with the following information:

  • Title – the title of the story/task

  • Status – the current status of the story/task

  • Story points – the story points assigned to the story/task

  • Description – the description of the story/task

2.3 Showing Completed Stories

When enabled, the Show complete stories button allows you to show the stories that are set to Done. For more information on statuses of stories, see the Changing the Status of a Story or a Task section below.

2.4 Opening Documents Connected to Stories

If the story is created from a feedback item, you can open a document which the feedback item refers to. That means if a feedback was submitted for a widget on a page, the Open document button or icon will open this page.

To open the document, either click the Open document button in the top bar or the corresponding icon in the table:
