    Let's say we've got a story (trivial example representing the problem only):

    S: Create report to see all customers

    I then allocate some tasks:

    T: Create new report page - assigned to Ed
    T: Filter data by user - Assigned to Tom

    Ed does his work, but discovers a massive issue creating the page. So he creates a Blocking Issue:

    I: New report page added but DB needs to return extra dataset [or something that breaks something else]

    Now Tom (me) will see my job sheet in my perspective (which shows tasks allocated to me).

    I'll start this work, not knowing that there's an Issue that prevented the previous task from being completed.

    In fact, I'd like to know a) if there are issues blocking this task and b) if the task prior to my task is finished.

    Is this possible or is there a better way of using this?

    Thanks, Tom

    Hi Tom,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I think creating a board view with rows, filtered by parent item will be most convenient in your case (refer to the attached screenshot). In order to have bugs and issues displayed along with the tasks, you need to relate them to the story as child items. Here is a link to our documentation on how to configure board rows and columns:

    Note that once you have created the desired view (if the sorting is set to Backlog Priority), you can drag and drop the items to prioritize them within the cells.

    Hi Elena!

    I've followed your instructions and made a board called Story Progress. It uses the Parent Item, filtered to Story/Feature, and I can see the task progress in the Status column.

    Now providing an update adds infinite scrolling and we'll be all good :)

    Thanks, Tom

    Hello Tom,
    I am glad that the proposed solution worked for you case.

    As for the infinite scrolling, there is a possibility to lead to browser slowness or even a crash if there are huge amount of items to be displayed,  that is why paging has been implemented.

    If you have additional questions or feedback, please contact us.
