Agile Development Tools

Organize large collection of user stories with ease.

User Story Map

Use User Story Map to organize large collection of user stories with ease. Overview, relate and break-down complex software requirements into manageable user activities, user tasks and epics and subsequently to user stories, synchronizing with multiple sprints for team collaborations. Use four-level story map to deal with scaled agile project, while you can always switch it back to the standard three-level story map structure in a few clicks.

Just-in-Time backlog management

Store requirements in backlog for classifying, prioritizing, estimating and ready for spike investigation.

User Activities management

Manage high level goals as User Activities, and derive User Tasks in further.

User Tasks management

User Activities are sub-divided into User Tasks - things that one can do to accomplish goals.

Story Epic management

Create epics to represent groups of works. Epics are often seen as a 'large user story'.

Epic prioritization

Drag and drop to re-arrange epics in a story map.

Release planning

Perform release planning by organizing story epics in Release basis.

Sending Multiple Sources of Requirement to Backlog

Identify requirements from different sources using different approaches and send them to the story map backlog right from the diagrams, by this way, you can automate and enforce the traceability among software models, regardless of the source from where they were derived.

Sending Multiple Sources of Requirement to Backlog

Epics and User Story Screen

Oversee the user stories of the entire product. Create, prioritize and re-locate user stories on-the-fly.

Epics and User Story Screen

Effort and Risk Assessment with Affinity Table

Estimate user stories both in story points and hours at the same time, perform spike investigation and eliminate technology risks in Sprint 0. Seamlessly integrated with story map, and scrum and sprint process.

Scrum Sprint Board

Edit, prioritize, label user stories with easy drag & drop GUI. Manage and organize stories with multiple sprints and epics. Synchronize stories with story map and teamwork capabilities in real-time.

Sprint Task Board

Keep an eye on the project's progress. Sprint Task Board consists of a big board with user stories placed in different columns representing the phased processes. You can view and update the progress of stories by drag-and-drop around the columns.

Derive Tasks (Task Management) from Sprint

User stories can be identified in Story Map, or alternatively be created ad-hoc within a sprint. You can assign who is responsible for what task(s) within the sprint GUI and synchronize the entire sprint to Tasifier (a Task Management tool) without leaving the sprint.

Tasifier integration

Gantt Chart Support

Visualize the progress of supporting a user story with a Gantt Chart. See the start and end dates of tasks, their inter-dependencies and progresses, make adjustment to their duration on-the-fly in the Gantt Chart tool and in sync with the list in Tasifer.

User Story Statements

A user story represents a small piece of business value that a team can deliver in an iteration. User story statements contain a list of simple description of a feature told from the perspective of the person (user or customer) who desires the new capability with a good reason behind it. You can write user story statements under an Epic, and have user stories generated automatically.

User Story Statements

Turn every software project into a successful one.
