Assigning user stories to team members

Sprint members are development team members who are responsible for driving the completion of user stories in the sprint. They do not just involve in the development, but they play significant roles in driving the completion of story.

You can assign user stories to those sprint members so that they can carry on managing/executing the development activities. In this article you will learn how to add user stories to members. Note that this feature is only available for team project (VPository/Teamwork Server).

    In a member column, user stories are ordered based on their priorities. Therefore, when you drop the user story, make sure you are placing the story at the right position that reflects its priority. If a user story has to complete earlier, you better consider placing it at a higher position.
