Introduction to Tasks

Well, tasks are the elements of a user story.

Tasks are the work items that are not directly related to a requirement but should be completed to get those requirements completed.

For example, let’s assume that we have a user story:

< As a Store Manager I want a mechanism to provide budget offers to store customers >

Now a few examples of the tasks associated with this user story could be:

  • 1. Make the configuration changes to provide higher access to the store_manager user.
  • 2. Making coding changes to add Provide Offers button to the main screen
  • 3. Integration test after making the changes.

Once created, these tasks are assigned to team members to get them done.
