Definition of Done

Girish_Kulkarni May 13, 2020

Definition of Done:

Every User Story that starts and progress through different phases will come to completion where we would want to have a Definition of Done to be checked for each user story.

1. Create a Custom Field having CheckBoxes for each Definition of Done.

2. Set the values for DOD and configure the field as Mandaory

3. Once the DOD field is created we need to associate it with the Custom Screen.

4. Create a Custom Screen and add the custom field DOD to the screen

5. Now Edit the work flow associated with the project where we want DOD to be configured, 

6.In the Transition of Testing to Done ; You can add/call the custom screen.

7. Publish the workflow and Check if there are any unmapped fields on the board ; If required do map the Un Mapped status fields.

Verification :

1. Progress a work item / User story from Dev  -> Testing and Further to Done

2. Popup screen should populate for DOD 

3. Select the check boxes for all the DOD values and Mark as DONE.


This should help us to create a DOD and implement it in our projects

Good idea! So far I've seen approaches where DOD was simply put in the end of the description per story as a numbered list.

This was then simply hooked up during QA/Review using (/).

In case DOD is not met the number is referenced in a created subtask to further iterate.


Having a custom screen sounds interesting, certainly worth to try that at some point!
