Product Discovery in Azure DevOps

Product discovery is the very first activity of a product design, which then becomes the baseline for decision making. During product discovery you can collect all the crucial information about any user problems and then product’s solutions for them. Carrying out this process lets you build better prototypes, useful features and finally, a product that users love. Missing out this work can easily result in a failed product.

Iteration Planning In 5 Steps In Azure DevOps

Iteration planning or release planning is the next step right after the product discovery phase, and it’s also a frequently repeating element of software development. The major purpose of iteration planning is creating goals or missions to subsequent sequences of the dev work. Azure DevOps handles iterations well, but before launching the next sequence, the planning could be hulking when you have only a flat list of user stories.

Azure DevOps integration FAQ

What does structure sync mean?

Structure sync means that the top three levels on the story map will be synced as Epic-Feature-User Story. It works the same way when you import items from Azure DevOps; the epics will appear on the top level, features on the second etc. Moreover, structure sync keeps the relationships between different levels e.g. users stories in a feature appears under the related feature on the story map.

What if I use a different structure?

Structure sync is optional, you can import an Azure DevOps project without structure sync. Choosing this option, you can import tasks and bugs, too. After importing all the items, you have the opportunity to arrange cards according to your business needs.

Which item parameters are synced?

Card detail/description is synced with all the text formatting. Status and estimations are also synced and updated in real-time. You can add a direct link to each backlog item to jump back to the story map with one click.

What if the project is already exist in Azure DevOps?

StoriesOnBoard boosts the dev process when you start building a product from scratch and it's also very useful when importing a running project to the story map. For example, you can discover holes in the user journey, or missing features etc. In addition, using structure sync helps keep backlog items in the original place.

Can I use custom statuses?

Of course you can. You can link custom Azure DevOps statuses manually. Just set up the status mapping during the integration set up.

How can I sync if estimation units don not match story points?

You can set an estimation unit manually in StoriesOnBoard and the integration will sync the estimation value.
