How do I connect project management boards to a team?
In order for a team get its own iterations and its own issues (for Pulse view) It is imperative to select the relevant project management board(s) and relevant iterations for the team.
LinearB provides each team the option to created a custom team board and furthermore filter the relevant iterations using a regular expression or manually select the iterations.
Team board selection is done through the team setting area on the Projects sub-navigation. If the organization is connected to Jira the user will be given the option to select the relevant board for the team. From your team dashboard, click on the gear icon > Team Settings > Projects. Click on the dropdown menu labeled "Select all the boards your team is working on" and select the relevant boards. You can also customize which sprints to apply to this team, or set your board to "weekly iterations" if you use kanban.
Once the board is selected you will be able to see the number of the iterations in the board and the names of the iterations. If necessary you can:
- Add a regular expression that will filter the relevant iterations from the board according to a specific naming convention. Once the user adds a regular expression the list of available iterations is updated.
- The last level of filtering is available through manual filtering of specific iteration names. Through this option, the user can uncheck any specific iteration that might be irrelevant for her team.
Once the list of iteration is set LinearB will process the new board settings and change the available sprints and issue data based on the new selection.
Note: It will take few minutes to re-process the team's data after board/iterations changes. Only after LinearB processed the data for the new board/iteration it will be displayed in the dashboard.
