Reading through the documentation on Advanced Roadmaps, it looks like the intended use is to only be able to assign a Team to the Story. Is there any way anyone has found to be able to have a Team assigned to a Sub-Task of a Story? We have a use case where the Story Issue is a main idea and the Sub-Tasks of that Story would be intended for different Teams to accomplish a piece of work on that. Thanks for any response ahead of time.
I think you're really going to struggle with this one.
Sub-tasks are not independent items outside their parent story, they are very much a part of a story. A story should be worked on by one team, not several.
Sub-tasks are there for breaking up stories into smaller parts so you can assign different team members, or use them for actions in different parts of a product or different technologies or whatever.
But as they're part of the main story, some of their attributes have to be that of their parent. Because if they were not, you could not call them part of their parent. These attributes include sprints, versions, team allocated and so-on.
The problem is as follows: we're trying to plan front-end & back-end efforts on the project with using Auto Schedule. It works only based on the team's capacity and works great if we estimate user stories and assign them to some team. But the team is not cross-functional and front-end devs can't work on b/e stuff and vice versa. So we can plan and estimate only the specific sub-tasks which could be designated to specific teams with their own capacity, but that is impossible. Does that make sense?
1) Creating two different user stories for the same task
2) Assign the two user stories to the two different teams in question
3) Link the user story that is acting as a sub-task to the main task to the main task with a block.
4) Make sure which ever team or team member is handling the main task can not close the main task without the second user story (sub-task) being completed.
I think this could work as a work around.
