2.6. Task Management

As described above, in addition to storing the requirements for a project, SpiraTeam® includes the capability of drilling each lowest-level requirement down further into a series of work items called ‘Tasks’. These tasks are the discrete activities that each member of the development team would need to carry out for the requirement to be fulfilled. Each task can be assigned to an individual user as well as associated with a particular release or iteration. The system can then be used by the project manager to track the completion of the different tasks to determine if the project is on schedule.

The tasks can be organized into different folders as well as categorized by different types (development, testing, infrastructure, etc.), each of which can have its own workflow which defines the process by which the task changes status during the project lifecycle.
