Task types

Task information can be visualised as tasks and synchronized with Jira and other Program Boxes.

FeatureDescription

Add a task representing a Version to the Gantt chart.

Fields which will synchronize:

      • start date
      • release date
Components

Add a task representing a Component to the Gantt chart. Components do not have dates, hence will not synchronize with Jira but will synchronize with other Programs.

Projects

Add a task representing a Project to the Gantt chart.

Projects do not have dates, hence will not synchronize with Jira but will synchronize with other Programs.

Agile SprintsAdd a task representing an Agile Sprint to the Gantt chart.

Fields which will synchronize:

      • Sprint start date
      • Sprint completion date
Agile Backlog

Add a task representing an Agile backlog to the Gantt chart.

Backlogs do not have dates, hence will not synchronize with Jira but will synchronize with other Programs.


If you want to structure your task automatically make sure that the correct structure builders are enabled and required task types selected.

For example, to create a simple structure based on Projects - select the Project task type in the Automatic rules section and enable the Project structure builder.


Go to Program Box configuration - Task - Task structure.
