How to use the work breakdown to create an initial plan

How to use the Work breakdown to create an initial plan

The Work breakdown is where you setup the initial plan for a specific project. You can create a group of items (later to be user stories) through the New group button in the upper right-hand corner. This group could for instance be named 'Release 1', and include all user stories or tasks related to / which needs to be completed for the first release of your product.
Work Breakdown

To create a new plan item, click the New plan item button. Afterwards, you can move this item around, simply through drag&drop, based on priority, and the group it is related to.

By modifing the different fields for each item, the system will automatically accumulate, and setup an estimate, prediction or forecast of how the individual user story will plan out. This is based on previous projects, and the data you continuously put into the system. Thus, the algorithm for your projects gets improved over time.

When you're satisfied with your initial plan, and wants to get started with running the project - you simply click the Convert to Stories button.

A new dialog will show up similar to the one shown below. Here you can easily modify each user story or task, before it is created and added to your running project. Then to confirm the changes, and submit the items - click the Convert to Stories button, and the system will automatically create the user stories or task with the criteria chosen in the work breakdown.
