Click the ID of an item, or click View Details.
View and edit details of an item in a form layout. Some fields and properties are available only in the details view.
The details view enables you to perform the following main functions:
To check if a field is editable, hover over the field value. On editable fields, the value is highlighted, and an edit icon displays alongside the value.
Hover over the Theme or Feature values and click the link in the tooltip take you directly to the theme or feature.
Compare the Planned and Actual effort values to improve your planning accuracy.
Planned and Actual effort values are aggregated from all of the effort values defined for the item's tasks. Planned effort is the sum of all estimated hours, and Actual effort is the sum of all invested and remaining hours.
User stories and defects have a read only API ID field. Applications that integrate with Agile Manager using the API use this unique backlog item ID to reference user stories or defects.
Use comments to discuss an item. Click Add Comment.
Note: Comments cannot be deleted after you save them.
Before you can begin work on a sprint backlog, you need to break the backlog items into tasks.
Tasks describe the actual activities that must be accomplished in order for the user story or defect to be completed. Tasks are measured in hours, as opposed to backlog items that are estimated in story points.
Drag tasks up or down to organize them, such as in the order they should be performed.
Note: Depending on your project settings, a default task may already be created for defects.
Click Show History on a task to review changes made to this task after it was created. Filter the records according to the user who made changes, or a changed field.

For user stories, define the criteria that must be met in order for the user story to be ready for delivery.
Depending on your project configuration, until all the acceptance tests have passed, a user story cannot be marked as complete.
