Configuring Story Points in TestTrack
While planning the TestTrack 2010.1 release, we talked to a variety of customers and soon realized that every team uses story points slightly differently. Most commonly, the teams use story points as a high-level estimate of the difficulty of a specific task or work item. TestTrack is flexible in allowing you to manage stories in a variety of ways, we've outlined a straight-forward process here to get you started. As you become familiar with using story points, feel free to tweak your TestTrack configuration to better meet the need of your team. To use story points in TestTrack, you need to create a custom Story Points field and configure time tracking.
Create the Custom Field
- Login to TestTrack and choose Tools > Administration > Custom Fields.
- Add a new custom field, name it Defect Story Points, and be sure to make it an Integer field so that you can do column totaling in list windows.
Configure Time Tracking
- Choose Tools > Administration > Project Options and select Issues under the Time Tracking folder.
- Select the Story Points custom field from the Story Points field drop-down menu to enable time tracking.
