May 26, Session Recap

Q: Work Rules - will this feature eventually be something that can be "scoped" in the heirarchy so that different GROUPS within the workspace can have different rules ?

A: Yes. Work Rules will have the ability to belong to a project only, not the entire workspace. They will also support the ability to cascade to their children's project hierarchy.

Q: Dependencies - Is there a way to reduce the dependencies at the story level? Can we weed out Team A to Team A story dependencies and only show Team A to Team B - so cross team dependencies?

A: This works to show stories in the current project that have predecessors in a project other than the currently-scoped project:    ((Predecessors.ObjectID != null) AND (Predecessors.Project.Name != {projectName}))

Q: I had brought up the question earlier about how to capture Objectives and I was told to use Themes field in Iteration timebox. We later found Milestones could be a better place. Is there something that we should be aware of if we plan on going down this route of using Milestones to capture Objectives

A: The PI objectives are best captured in the Theme field of the corresponding Release of that PI.   Additionally, and regardless, we are in a limited/closed Beta for OKR (Objective Key Results), that's a separate feature that allows capturing objectives per individual portfolio items such as features. This is expected to become an open-beta in the near term.

Q: I have a question on Capacity Planning.  Where does the value for Group Estimate Rollup come from?

A: The Group Estimates will come from using the 'Allocate' option on the Feature during Capacity Planning and providing the estimate for another team.
