Tracing changings of a user story

When you keep discussing requirements with stakeholders, you may have the need to revise a user story for what you have recorded before say, to add more conversation items, to correct confirmation items in reflecting new request, to add new storyboard, etc. As the software project keeps going, you, your teammates or even the stakeholders may have uncertainties about the behavior of the system. They may wonder why certain features are implemented in the way they are, which seems to be different from what they originally requested for. In such cases, you can re-open the related user story, and trace back the changes within the log section.

The log section is resided under the Description tab of a user story. Whenever a major change is made, a log is written automatically. Note that a log is created by UeXceler automatically. You cannot create a log yourself. In this article you will learn how to access the logs of a user story.
