Beyond the basics...

This page describes the very basic features to get started using Tru-agile. For additional details about other features, select it below.


Create a Workspace

The first thing you'll need to do is to create your workspace. A workspace is basically your company/organization. Within your new workspace, you'll be able to create different Projects.

To help getting you setup quickly, you may choose one of the industries that works better for the type of projects that you'll be working on.

The following teams and issue types will be created automatically.

Software Development
Marketing Agency
Creative & Design
Blank Project
Planning
Bug
New Feature
UX/UI
Mobile
Research
Planning
Meeting
Campaign
Research
Mock up
New Design
Redesign
Default tag

And your workspace is now all set up!

If you have some tasks on another task manager application, you can import issues (CSV file) to load your historical data and get started faster.

You can use the top menus to Create a new project, Invite users and Add issues.


Manage Projects

You can create multiple projects. Each project will have its own Teams and Issue types.

If you're working on multiple projects, you can rank them by importance by dragging them into the correct order. This is used as one of the rules for determining the scores of issues associated with each project.

When you create a new project, you'll be asked to set up the team and basic structure of the project. You can again choose one of the suggested industries or copy it from any previous project of yours. Its Teams and Issue types will be set up.

When you edit your project, you can also put it on hold. All of the issues associated with that project will be temporarily be taking off the backlog and consideration for planning.


Manage Teams

You can add / remove as many teams as you want.
Two teams are created automatically for every project: PROJECT MANAGERS and SELF (Private)

PROJECT MANAGERS Team: They will have access to ALL issues, planning / reporting features.

SELF (private) Team: Every team member has a self team. They're the only members of that team and it cannot be edited. Basically it's a way for each team member to assign some tasks to themselves. These are private tasks. They will NOT show up at the Active Sprint page or general project issues. However, the issues associated with the SELF team will use the same logic to determine which ones are suggested.

If you have multiple teams, you can rank them by importance by dragging them into the correct order. This is used as one of the rules for determining the scores of issues assigned to each team.


Invite Users

You can invite other users to join your Projects / Teams.

Normally a project admin or project managers would manage which teams that users belong to, however you have also the option to allow each team member to assign themselves to different teams.


Add Issues

You can easily add issues by adding a title or basic summary to your issue and an explanation / steps if needed.

The layout and information asked varies based on how you have set up your workspace. For example, if you're working on multiple projects, you'll be asked to select a project. If you have a roadmap set up. if you have created Epics. And if you have multiple teams.

You may select an Issue type, a Story point estimation associated with the issue, and basic priority.

Issue types

Story points

Priorities

The issue scoring generated by Tru.agile uses these preferences among other variables to determine which issue should be suggested next.


Work Now or Later

This is how issues are suggested to each user. They can then choose to work on them Now or Later!

When a user chooses to Work Now, that issue is assigned to the user and no longer available to others. The user can update its progress when they feel necessary or simply mark it done when the issue is complete. At which point, the next issue on their backlog is suggested.

If the user chooses to Work Later, the next issue on their backlog will be suggested. As issues are "skipped", we use that to adjust their priorities going forward, so that issues are always suggested at the right time. For additional information about how Tru.agile automatically prioritize issues, go to www.truagile.ai/faq


Update Issues

An issue can also be marked as Need more info or as blocker / stuck. In these cases, the issue will be sent back to whoever worked on it last or created it with the user's question.

In additional to that, an issue may be closed as duplicate or no longer an issue.


Backlog

The backlog is the full list of tasks assigned to the teams that a user belong. So each user's backlog is unique. Even users who belong the the same teams, over time, because of their interactions with different issues, the order in which the issues appear in their backlog will be different.

You can move issues around if you think some issues should be done before others. You can choose to work on a particular issue directly from your backlog. Overtime, you will find less and less need to rely on your backlog, as the right issues are suggested to you at the right time.


Active Sprint

This is where you can follow the team's progress. All suggested issues, as well as skipped, done and trashed issues. Comparing with the previous week for progress reference.


Sprint Planning

This is a project management tool that will generate the plan for all of your Sprints automatically based on the team's velocity.
