Dependency Status Dashboard #2

The Dependency Status Dashboard app shows dependencies between user stories for a series of upcoming iterations. This assists groups with forecasting potential blocks in the next iteration . Product owners will be able to see what teams they need to talk to about their dependencies.

Dependency Status Dashboard #2

Dependencies are based on predecessor and successor settings in user stories. Any iterations with a State field value of Planning or Committed will display in the app.

Features include:

  • View a list of any user stories in iterations that have dependencies on other stories or defects
  • View the FormattedID, Name, and Plan Estimate values of user stories with dependencies
  • View the FormattedID, Name, and Schedule State values of dependent user stories
  • View the FormattedID, Name, and Owner values of dependent defects
  • Click any of the blue hyperlinks to navigate to an iteration, user story , or defect detail page
  • Use the Auto Height setting to automatically adjust the vertical space of the app based on the amount of visible data
  • Warning icons will display in the app when:
    • A dependency is not yet scheduled
    • A defect is associated to a user story or dependency
    • A dependency is scheduled too late to start work on the original story
    • A dependency is marked as blocked

  • Only immediate story predecessors are listed in the app
  • Be sure to set the state of your iteration to Accepted after it has ended to prevent old data from displaying
