Copado Sprint Wall

Updated 1 month ago by Copado Solutions

Overview

The Sprint Wall view allows you to manage your sprints in a more friendly and agile way. This view provides very useful information regarding the status of the sprint and a whole picture of its content.

As a Sprint Wall user with admin rights, you can now configure how the new SprintWall for Lightning looks when you launch the application. For example, you can remove the default fields and add the most relevant fields to the Header as well as the table. You can also perform in-line edits on selected fields. What makes the new SprintWall even more exciting is that now you can search the User Stories by text.

Create a Sprint and a User Story

If you need to show the Sprint Wall per Team, per Project, or both, the Sprint records need to be configured per Team, per Project, or both.
  1. Go to App Launcher > Sprints.
  2. You get default views and filtered views of the Sprint records.
    1. Default views:
      • Recently viewed
      • All
    2. Use filters and filter logic to retrieve a filtered list of Sprint records.
  3. The default Sprint page gives you the simplest way to create a new Sprint.
    1. Click New to create a new Sprint with no pre-existing values.
    1. Here you need to provide all the required values manually.
  4. Use the View action button to select between the following views:
    1. Table
    2. Kanban
    3. Split View
  5. Click the Split View icon to be able to view all the Sprint records on the left and the Sprint Wall view of the selected Sprint on the right.
    You can perform infinite scrolling to retrieve more records in the Sprint Wall view.
  6. In the split view, the New button is not visible. However, you can still create a new Sprint record in three different ways:
    1. Click the Down Arrow icon in the left pane and click New. To learn how to create a new sprint click here.
    2. Click Edit > Save & New.
    3. Click Clone. Here the data will be copied onto the new Sprint.
  7. Click New on the Sprint Wall to create a new user story that will automatically belong to the selected Sprint.

You can filter the User Stories displayed on the Sprint Wall by any user story field (or a combination of user story fields, even for fields that are not displayed on the table). Here are some examples:

  • Filter USs by Assignee (e.g: by me or even by empty Assignee)
  • Filter USs by Team
  • Filter by Record Type
  • Filter by Status
  • Filter by Assignee AND Status
  • Filter by Assignee AND Status AND Record Type

Edit Sprint and User Stories

Sprint

On the Sprint Wall page, these are the default fields:

Field Label

Description

Status

Select the status as Draft, Planned, In Progress, and Completed

End Date

End date of the Sprint.

Working Days Left

The days are calculated using the end date and the current date (excluding the weekends).

Initial Planned Velocity

  • Total of Planned Points of all user story records calculated when the Sprint status is changed to In Progress.

Planned Velocity

  • Total of Planned Points of all user story records. 
  • This is recalculated each time a new user story is added to the Sprint or the planned points are updated.

Actual Velocity

  • Total of Planned Points of all user story records with a specific status as defined under the metadata type Actual Velocity Statuses.
  • The default value of the custom metadata type is Completed.
  • It can be any value or a list of comma-separated Status values.

To know more about velocity see Copado Sprint Velocity.

To add, remove or replace fields go to Setup>Sprint>Compact Layout. For more details go to Salesforce Compact Layouts.

In Salesforce the Compact Layout can have up to 10 fields but all 10 fields will be visible in Salesforce Classic. However, in Salesforce Lightning only 7 fields are visible even if 10 get added. 
Edit User Story
  • Click the drop-down arrow to be able to View, Edit, or Delete the user story record.
    In case you edit the user story, ensure to refresh the data table to be able to view the changes on the Sprint Wall.
  • If the row edit action is performed, the datatable is auto-refreshed.
  • To launch the user story record in a different tab, click the User Story name. 
  • On the Sprint Wall, you get the details of the User Stories in a data table with some default columns. These columns come from the fields you added from the Sprint_Wall_Columns fieldset in the User Story object. Hence, you can add or remove the column according to your requirement. 
  • By default, 10 user story records are displayed on the Sprint Wall. Click View All to switch to the user story list view. Here you can perform infinite scrolling to retrieve more records.
    You can create a new user story from this page as well.

Bulk Edit User Stories on a Sprint Wall

Now you don’t need to edit the user stories one by one to add the same field values to a set of user stories. Instead, you can select the user stories wherein you want to add values to specific fields, all at once. Here are the steps that will help you perform the task.

  1. Go to the Sprint Wall where you need to edit the User Stories.
  2. Select the User Stories you want to assign the same field value.
  3. Click Edit Stories.
  4. Add values to the required fields. Remember that the values you enter in this screen will be added to all the selected User Stories. However, if you leave all the fields blank, no changes will be made to the User Stories.
  5. Click Save.
  6. Confirm if the new values are added to the selected User Stories.

Good to Know

  • You can switch between the VisualForce page and the Lightning page. To know more click here.
  • A blank table will be displayed if there are no records for the selected Sprint.
  • If you modify the Sprint Wall Columns fieldset in User Stories with no fields, you will get an error while loading the Sprint records. 
  • If you modify the SprintWall_MassUpdate fieldset with no fields, you will get an error message. The Edit Stories option in the Sprint Wall will not be able to provide any functionalities.
  • There is no limit on the number of columns that can be displayed on the data table.
  • It is recommended that the User Story Reference is made the first field in the Field Set so that it is the first column in the Sprint data table to navigate to the US.

Limitations

The Sprint Wall comes with some search limitations listed out here:

  • You must enter at least three characters in the search field. For example, if you want to search User Stories and you enter the value US, the search will not yield any results.
  • Records cannot be searched by date. This is due to a mismatch between the UI and backend date formats. A helpful alternative is to sort the date column.
  • Decimal values are not accepted in the percentage fields. Hence, enter an approximate number that is less than 100.
  • HTML fields, for example, View in Git are not displayed properly on the data table.
