Tip #5 - Create custom work item type and priority

Tip #5 - Create custom work item type and priority

 
Every business has a bundle of requirements to be targeted and these requirements are categorized into different work item types called 'Stories', 'Tasks', and 'Bugs'. What if your business expands and you get busy handling multiple projects at the same time? Well, your requirements are mounted and you will look out for different work item types to track different types of work. 
 
In Zoho Sprints, you can 
create custom work item types to segregate your requirements based on the type of work you do. Only the Team Owner and Admin can create custom work item type and priority.
 
For instance, instead of jotting down all the client requirements from development, testing, user interface, and content into a single work item type 'Story'. You can create individual work item types for every type of work to categorize your requirements in a simple and clear way. 



Similar to creating custom work item types, you can also  create custom priorities to help prioritize your work items effectively. Apart from the default priority types High, Medium, and Low, you can customize priorities the way you wish.

                                            Hello, It's been a while since we met with a quick, interesting tip. As the saying goes, "Too much of anything is good for nothing", today the focus is on delivering your outcomes with the right amount of planning.

                                            Continuing from our Tip #2 on leading to a sprint, let's see how to manage the work items on the Scrum board.  Once you start the sprint your work items are automatically displayed on the Scrum board where you will actually manage the work items. It is a snapshot of the backlog items identified for the current sprint.    The layout of the Scrum board Simply put, the scrum board is just like a physical board with sticky notes on which the work items of the active sprint are displayed.  The scrum board

                                            Lanes define a clear path to reach your destination. In Agile, swimlane is one such concept that sets a simple and clear process of the work that you do.   The concept of swimlane can be related to the pool, where the swimmers gather in their respective lanes to start off. Similar to the pool, work items are grouped in different categories. Each category is referred as a lane and is displayed in horizontal format. Swimlanes are effective in categorizing the work items with respective to specific
