Creating user stories

Stories, ideally, should be added in the context of a "Business requirement". You can add one or many in the right panel of a requirement in the "STORIES" tab.

Finally, you can also switch to stories view in the change grid.

Editing user stories

You can edit user stories either directly in the list (right-clicking on an item in the grid) or from the right panel.

In order to attach additional information (images, URL links, rich text notes with solutions, etc.) or to establish links to other processes activities or technology components again right-click on a target story to access the context menu or use the "Documentation tab" in the right panel.

Change grid behaviour

The change grid allows you to filter and sort stories by any standard and custom field. You can also resize the column widths. The system will remember your settings (filters & column widths) so when you visit the change grid next time it will be exactly how you left it!

TIP The application does not store sorting information
