Because sometimes all you need is a quick overview of your projects, say hello to the new widget for Tuleap dashboards: the Project Milestones. Let’s dig into what it means, how it works and why you’ll love it.
Actionable agile metrics gathered in one widget
This widget is available in Tuleap Enterprise Edition only.
Let’s go back to Tuleap Agile Dashboard, the agile tool in Tuleap designed for Scrum approaches. Product backlog, release and sprint planning, burnups, burndowns…Tuleap Agile Dashboard is the perfect information hub for all agile projects. Highly flexible and configurable event for non-Scrum methods.
All agile indicators you need in your personal or project dashboard
For any effective project management, continuous monitoring and indicators are very important. In Scrum, key metrics allow to analyze projects’ progress, teams’ velocity and deviations to make timely decisions. These indicators include : start/end dates of development of a release, initial / remaining points, velocity, capacity, etc., and are linked together.
The purpose of this new widget is to display those agile KPIs, directly in your personal or project dashboard. It can be used either by the development team, the Product Owner, Scrum master… any other team member!
