In Greehopper's "Work" board, user histories with no sub-tasks are grouped under the swimlane "Other Issues", thus losing its priority.
Up to this poing, everything's fine. The problem comes here:
Is there anyone suffering this problem too? Are we doing something wrong?
You could base your Swimlanes on queries and add the swimlane with the following JQL to the top (issuetype=Bug) that should place your bugs always in a seperate swimlane on top.
If you do this you will loose the Swimlanes based on stories, so this might not be what you want.
Thanks for your suggestion, Tom.
I have tried and it solves a part of the puzzle, but at the cost of losing the relative priority between columns that provide story-based swimlanes, which I'd like to maintain.
Good suggestion, though, and gave me an idea about some other thing I needed, so thanks indeed.
We have the same exact problem. We only create sub-tasks if the bug or story is estimated to take more than 4 hours to get to "Done." I would like our task board ("Work" rapid board view) to appear as folllows, preserving the product backlog order defined on the "Plan" view:
Bug (no subtasks)
Story (no subtasks)
Story (no subtasks)
Without this capability, there's no way for the team to work in the product owner-specified priority order unless we create a "fake" subtask for every bug or story which, as Fernando points out, is a waste of time and provides no value...it's just a work-around.
That's exactly my problem, Dave. Thanks for the description, it's really easy to understand in the way you put it.
In the meantime, I'm trying to find plugins to make easier to create sub-tasks.
If someone finds a plugin to create automatically sub-tasks, I would love to try it.
