Portfolio Hierarchy

Use the Portfolio Hierarchy app to visualize and manage the relationships between different levels of portfolio items and the stories that support them. This is a useful app for project managers and product owners.

Scheudule State field visible

This app displays portfolio items and their children, including user stories.

Use drag-and-drop to:

  • Re-parent portfolio items, enforcing parents of the appropriate type
  • Re-parent stories to other stories
  • Re-parent tasks to other lowest-level stories
  • Move stories to become children of the appropriate type of portfolio item

Click the gear icon to edit, copy, delete items, or add a child directly from the hierarchy. When working with user stories in the hierarchy, you can add, edit, copy, and delete tasks using the gear menu.

Add Child option

The Query field is available in the app settings menu. Enter SQL-style queries to filter the data displayed in the app based on field values.

Note: Queries apply to the top-most level of portfolio items in view.


Hover over the filter icon to display the current settings.
