In Scrum, every work item moves through different statuses before it's completed. These predefined statuses are listed in a board view called the Scrum Board - it's the digital equivalent of writing your team's tasks on a white board in your office.
In Zoho Sprints, we have three default statuses on the board.
All work items that aren't yet completed are placed in this card. Usually, the users move the work items to this status during the sprint plan meeting, because that's when the team picks items from the backlog.
All items that have been started are placed in this card. After the Daily Scrum meeting, users start moving their work items to this status.
Once the user completes a work item, they move it to Done. This card should be full when the sprint ends.
You do not have to work with the three default statuses—you can create custom statuses for your board. Customize the statuses on your board to meet your business requirement. Check out custom status in project settings.
A swimlane is a filtered list of information that categorizes work items according to specific criteria. This helps the sprint team track the items as they progress on the board. There are five common swimlane types:
The priority swimlane displays work items by priority. Click each priority level to view the total number of work items in it. This information is useful in deciding where to allocate resources to complete work items.
The estimation points swimlane lists the points that you assigned to the work items while creating your project. Select a point values to view the number of work items assigned to it. You can easily track the items with the highest number of estimation points and monitor their progress on your board.
The story swimlane displays the stories in your sprint. Click a story to view the tasks and bugs in it. Use the swimlane to view the total number of stories. Check the status of the stories on the board to track their progress. In case the user doesn't have access to stories but has the access to view subitems, all the work items under Tasks & Bugs will be listed.
ItemTag swimlane displays work items based on the tags added to them.
