Recording conversation items in user story

UeXceler stresses the importance of discussions with stakeholders. Through discussions, you will be able to identify stakeholders' problems and the solutions they expect, which helps you identify the right requirements of the system.

In Visual Paradigm, there is a Conversation tab under each user story. The Conversation tab is for you to record the important points found during the conversation with stakeholders. The points not only can help you produce a set of requirements that can meet stakeholders' needs, but also provide developers with guidelines to follow when implementing the system.

Recording conversation items

  1. Locate the user story first. Here are some of the typical ways to locate a story.
    • If you own the URL of a user story, open the URL by selecting Diagram > Link from the toolbar. Paste the URL in breadcrumb in press Enter.
    • To locate a user story in a particular use case, open the use case by selecting UeXceler > Use Case first. Find the story under the User Stories tab on the right hand side.
    • To locate a user story in a sprint, open the sprint from the UeXceler > Sprint page and find the story there.
    • You can also find a user story in the UeXceler > User Story page. Note that if your story was added into a sprint, you have to enable the In Sprint option in the Advanced Filter.

To increase indentation on an item, select the item first and then select UeXceler > Increase Indent from the toolbar. Likewise, select UeXceler > Decrease Indent to reduce the level of indentation.
