Dave Duchene - Cisco

Explore the product. Fill your backlog's body up with task cards.
Prioritize tasks. Move important tasks ahead others on your story map.
Slice out viable/working releases. Determine the MVP and organize the rest of the tasks into working or tangible releases.

Push tasks to the Trello board

Once you have set up synchronization, you are able to send tasks to your Trello board. One of the biggest benefits of the integration is that you don't have to flood the project management board with all tasks.

STEP 4

Keep your Trello board clean and stay focused

When developers finish all tasks, clean the board by archiving cards. You can archive or delete the cards without losing data, StoriesOnBoard preserves tasks on the product backlog.
