Configure preferences and notifications
Tab: Workspace > Settings. Visible to Workspace Administrators only.
Workspace preferences include the following settings:
Define the default number of work hours per day team members are expected to put in. This, combined with the number of work days in a sprint, determines the team member capacity, and the amount of hours of tasks they can take on.
If needed, you can modify work hours for a specific team, or for each team member in each sprint. For details, see Configure releases and Manage teams for a release.
Note: Capacity settings are defined for all teams, including both workspace and release teams.
Define the number of story points that will be estimated by default for each new defect, and whether a new task is automatically created for new defects.
If you select to automatically create a task for each new defect, the new task is created using the text you enter in the Default task description field.
The Default estimation for tasks value is the number of hours that will be estimated by default for each new task. Use task time estimations to compare Planned vs. Actual effort.
For details, see Use the Task Board.
Note: User stories do not have a default value. If you do not estimate a user story, its story points will remain blank.
Select this option to ensure that all new backlog items are associated with an application.
If you select this option, make sure you create the relevant applications. For details, see Work with applications.
When you attempt to change a backlog item's status to "Done", Agile Manager can check whether all its acceptance tests have passed and all its linked defects are closed.
If ALI is configured for your release, Agile Manager can also check the code coverage and unit test success rates criteria. For details, see Monitor development progress. These criteria will be enforced only for releases where ALI is configured, and only for stories or defects where metrics are available.
Toggle these parameters to skip or apply these checks.
Note: Even if you are allowed to close backlog items with non-passed acceptance tests and open linked defects, a warning displays to inform you of the open items.
Use the WSJF method to help determine theme and feature priorities. A theme or feature's WSJF score is the ratio of its Cost of Delay (CoD) divided by its Job Size.
The Cost of Delay is the sum of the following components:
- Business Value
- Time Criticality
- Risk Reduction and Opportunity Enablement (RR|OE)
To display the WSJF columns in Agile Manager, and to enable setting the CoD component weights, select Enable WSJF.
Select or clear the Allow Team Members to delete backlog items created by others to define delete permissions for users assigned to the Team Member role.
When this setting is cleared, team members can only delete themes, features, and backlog items that they author.
Select or clear Allow Team members to publish Dashboard widgets and favorites to define whether Team Member users can save new dashboard widgets and favorites as Public.
When this setting is cleared, team members can save new dashboard widgets and favorites only as Private. Select this setting to enable team members to share dashboard widgets and favorites that they create.
When this setting is selected, a team member can also edit or delete dashboard favorites that he or she saved as public.
