    Hi all,

    We are new to both Scrum and TeamPulse.  We have a few stories that are too big.  We discovered this after listing out all the tasks needed to complete the story.  We would like to create some child stories to the existing one (the parent) and transfer the tasks to the child stories from the parent story.  Thereby making the parent story manageable as each child story is will be a unit of functionality that can be able to be completed in a sprint.

    1. How can I transfer a task from one story to another?  In particular a task of a parent story to that of a child story.  It looks as if I have to delete the stories from the (now) parent story and recreate them in the child story.  I'm obviously missing something. (I hope)
    2. Is there a view where I can see parent stories with their children expanded beneath them?  Think of a story tree for epics or large stories. Requirements | View Stories does not show children beneath their parent.

    UPDATE: I have found that there is a hierarchical view on Requirements | View Stories that takes care of question 2.  Just need question one answered.

    Hello Edmund,

    What you need is a Split functionality which is currently not implemented in TeamPulse but definitely is part of our Backlog. Also at this point there is no option to move tasks from one story to another.
    I can suggest for your purposes another convenient way for managing stories. Currently we provide story relationship functionality. You can create one story (parent in your case) and few other smaller stories (child). When open them for editing, use "Stories" tab and link them to the parent story. During relationship creation use "Parent" relationship type. This way you can easily see related stories when use Hierarchical view (under Requirements -> View Stories) - they will all be displayed hierarchically.
    Hope that help you.

    Best wishes,
