I am in the process of evaluating the USM plug-in but seem to have come up with a problem straight away due to the way we work.
We have multiple teams working off a single backlog and Epics are used here to track elements of a project as opposed to simply being activities as shown in your demo film.
This means that when I look at the story map, I get all the epics for my team (as we use 'component' to assign the Epic or Story to a team) which are all the projects that we are going to work on. Under each Epic are all the associated User Stories, but like the backlog it's just vertical and linear. [Happy to share some screenshots with you directly but I'm not allowed to post them on a public platform]
Is there any way around this so that I could see all the stories for a particualr epic laid out horizontally? (N.B. changing the way we work, I have been told, isn't an option as the Epics are set up this way for reporting in Portfolio).
Hi @John Harrison,
Can you reach out via firstname.lastname@example.org please. I'm interested to learn more about the Portfolio setup as I've not used in anger for 18 months now.
Quick thought though: Represent Story Map Activities as JIRA Components may provide some guidance if you switch from 'activities' to 'teams' as you read the guide.
Thanks John, have a great day,
Product Manager, Easy Agile
