Tab: Workspace > Templates. Visible to Workspace Administrators only.
Workspace administrators can design templates for creating new user stories or defects. A template defines a description, as well as tasks and acceptance tests, for each new item based on the selected template.
By default, new workspaces are defined with a default defect template, with a single task for fixing the defect, estimated at 6 hours. Modify or remove this template, or simply clear the Set as Default Defect Template option, as needed.
Create templates using one of the following options:
|Adds a new, blank template.|
Creates a copy of a template that you can then modify.
Click User Stories or Defects, and select the template you want to duplicate.
Import a template from another workspace.
Note: This option is only displayed if you are able to access multiple workspaces.
Define a description of the template, such as when to use the template.
Users can view these descriptions when adding new items, in order to help them determine which template to use. In the Add Item dialog box used to create a new backlog item, hover over the icon displayed next to the template name to view the description.
The icon is only displayed for templates configured with a description.
|Set as Default||Set the current template to be used by default when creating new user stories or defects.|
|Story or Defect Name||Define a name for each new item created by the selected template.|
|User Story or Defect Description||Define a description for each new item created using the selected template.|
Tip: Use the defined Name or User Story/Defect Description as a template or prefixes for names and descriptions in new items.
Users can add additional text to the Name field in the Add Item dialog box, or to the item name or description after creating the item.
