7.2.5. Reqs & Tasks

In this mode, the lower part of the right pane displays the list of requirements and their associated child tasks that need to be completed for the release/iteration to be completed:

Each of the requirements and associated tasks is displayed together with its name, description (by hovering the mouse over the name), priority, progress indicator, current owner, estimated effort, actual effort, projected effort and numeric task identifier. Clicking on the task name will bring up the Task Details page which is described in more detail in section 8.2. This allows you to edit the details of an existing task.

You can perform the following actions on a task from this screen:

  • New Task – inserts a new task in the task list under the specified requirement, with a default set of values. The task will be associated with the specified requirement and current release/iteration.
  • Delete Task – deletes the task from the project.
  • Refresh – updates the list of requirements and tasks from the server, useful if other people are adding requirements and/or tasks to this release/iteration at the same time.
  • Apply Filter – Applies the entries in the filter boxes to the list of requirements and all their associated tasks (it does not filter the tasks themselves).
  • Clear Filters – Clears the current filter, so that all requirements associated with the current release/iteration are shown.
  • Edit – Clicking the [Edit] button to the right of the requirement or task allows you to edit the item inline directly on this screen. Only columns visible will be editable.
  • Show Level – Allows you to quickly expand/collapse all the requirements in the list.
