TeamPulse offers a highly intuitive UI which makes planning your Agile projects more effective and easier. You can quickly establish start and end dates for releases and iterations, set capacity and start moving work items from the product backlog to the iterations. In addition to scheduling work, in your plan you can also account for risks and issues to help your team be better prepared to manage change.
Manage Your Backlog
The TeamPulse Backlog is designed to keep all project Backlog items (like user stories, bugs, issues and risks) in one place, where they can be easily viewed, edited and organized.
Plan an Iteration
- Prioritize your backlog (the user stories that are not scheduled)
- Set start and end dates, capacity, create predecessor relationships among the iterations.
- Schedule work in each iteration
Schedule Your Release
In the Schedule area you can easily create your release plan - set start and end date for the release, breakdown the release into short iteration, set their durations, set the capacity, and create predecessor relationships among the iterations. If changes happen, you can easily adjust your release schedule using the simple and intuitive UI.
Decompose User Stories into Tasks
In a lot of cases, when you have a user story and you want to get the story to “Done”, there is more than one thing that has to happen. In TeamPulse, you can create tasks for user stories to help spread out the work throughout your team and provide better tracking for your project.
Manage Project Risks and Issues
In addition to scheduling work, in TeamPulse you can manage risks and issues, which are part of every project. For example, if your team wants to use the upcoming version of a 3rd party web grid, but you know there is a risk that new version can get delayed, you can capture this risk and outline how you should address it if it materializes. By planning for risks and issues in advance you can help your team be better prepared to adapt to change.
Organize Work Items with the Area/Iterations Manager
In TeamPulse you can associate stories, bugs, risk and issues not only to iterations, but also to areas.You can add, edit, delete, or change the hierarchy of your areas and iterations through the Area/Iterations Manager.
