13.3.3. Release Backlog – By Person

This view is designed to let you see the release backlog organized by resource / person. Each of the users that is a member of the current release is displayed as a heading, with the backlog items displayed in the same column underneath. The backlog items in this view can be either requirements (with associated tasks and test cases) or incidents.

You can click on the expand/collapse icons to hide any resources that are not relevant. The system will display a progress bar for each resource to illustrate the allocation for that resource. Any resource that has a progress bar that is completely green has been fully scheduled and should not have any additional items assigned. If the progress bar for that resource turns red, it means that they have been over-scheduled and you need to reassign some of the items.

Above the resource headings there is a section with the release name; that contains backlog items that are scheduled for the current release but have not yet been assigned to a resource. You can drag and drop the backlog items between resources or to/from the release backlog. Any backlog items not assigned to a resource and release will be listed in the (Unassigned Items) section at the top.
