How to define tasks, independent of requirements

Monday, March 7, 2016
How can one define tasks independent of requirements? For example, I want to define and track tasks/ activities related to Project Planning NOT related to Requirements Planning.

For Example:

Project Planning
  • Documentation of the Project Plan
  • Peer Review of the Project Plan
  • QA Review of the Project Plan
  • Approval of the Project Plan

Hi Saif

You can go to Tracking > Tasks and create a new task and don't associate it with a requirement. You may need to adjust the workflow to make sure that you are not requiring a requirement for the task.

Is there an additional thing you have to do, when we want to see those tasks in the planning-board.

We created some tasks with no association to a requirement, but i don't see them.

Hi Marc,

The main planning board is driven by requirements, so tasks that are not linked to requirements will not show there. However, there is a separate board specifically for tasks. On the main task list, in the upper right, you'll see buttons labeled Table and Board. Click Board to display the task planning board.
