How can i manager User Story versions

Hello everybody,

I would like to share a subject with you and your feedback would certainly be useful for me.

Suppose you are working on a feature and you have been working on a user story in different sprints.

How do you manage the versions of a user story?

If, for example, for a US-1 user story, we have the acceptance criteria (B, C, D) for sprint 1.

Afterwards, for functionality improvement reasons, the team should work on US-1 again (Sprint 14 for example).
Should the team have only the information (acceptance criteria) that concerns only iteration 14 or all the information from US-1 (even that given in iteration 1)?


I need tips to be able to manage user storie's versions

Hi @Houcem REZIG

Welcome to the community!

Unfortunately, there is no story versioning.  What you can do is create a new improvement story and link it to the old story (us-1) so that you can easily refer back to it.

Also, I recommend not to put a story to a sprint and then adding it to another sprint as it will mess up your reporting.

I hope this helps.

Hi @Fabian Lim 

That's what I was doing, now you have confirmed that I have to go through the creation of another user story (improvement)

Thank you very much
