Filtering user stories in UeXceler

A typical software project may involve a few hundreds of user stories. In order to focus only on the user stories that your team concern, you can apply a filter.  By using the filter, you can filter out the non-interested user stories by the use case they belong to, their tags, their statuses and by the members who have an estimation. Besides, you can also configure the filter to display user stories in or not in any sprint.

To use filter:

  1. Open the Use Story page in UeXceler. If you are not currently opening UeXceler, select UeXceler > UeXceler from the toolbar first, and then open the User Story page.
