My Scrum Board is not using the simplified workflow. I have a story that contains a couple of subtasks. I'd like to check if this story will automatically move to "Done" if all the subtasks under it are "Done"? Or will there be a button / prompt to allow me to do it myself?
Hi @Melvin Sng
Not by default - and there's no condition by default that sub-tasks need to be closed to close a story.
You can manage these two scenarios if you need to:
If you'd like more specific instructions to set up either of these, please let us know :)
You can have a story in a sprint with subtasks can you keep the story open until all the subtasks are done? What if all the subtasks for a User Story are not completed in a sprint? How do you carry over those subtasks for that User Story to the next sprint? When is the User Story closed?
You need to have all Sub-tasks closed under a Story when closing a Sprint.
If not, you need to keep the Story open and move it into the next Sprint to also bring over the Sub-tasks (both open and closed).
Sprints are related to Story-level issues - Sub-tasks cannot be in a Sprint by themselves.
Please explain me a little more, if the all subtask are Done and the Story is Open and the Sprint is completed. What happen with the story? Remains Open and I have to move it into the next sprint, but what happen with the subtasks? The substasks stays in the closed Sprint? or do I have to move them into the next sprint too.
Only the Story is in the Sprint - the Sub-tasks are intrinsically linked to the Story, and will always follow it.
This means if the Story is open when the Sprint completes, it will move to the next Sprint with all the Sub-tasks, regardless of their Status.
