Overview of this book

Agile methodologies like Scrum focus on customer values in an incremental way. Regular planning, tracking, reporting, and improving can become equally challenging from a project management perspective. GreenHopper is a tooling support for JIRA that offers easy adoption of agile practices through rich interfaces for effective team collaboration and project management. Agile Project Management with GreenHopper 6 Blueprints is a step-by-step guide that teaches you how to manage agile projects using the GreenHopper tooling system. With easy adoption using pre-sets for Scrum & Kanban, the rich interface focuses on the work at hand, increasing team productivity. Executing sprints, tracking sprints, and reporting on agile projects has never been so easy. The integration with different development environments helps teams to focus on collaboration, communication, and continuous improvement. This book covers agile project management concepts using GreenHopper. You will learn about backlog management for your agile team, how to create projects and boards for your agile team, and how to create new backlog items, prioritize items, estimate backlog items, create sprints, and update technical task status and report on the same. You will learn everything you need to know about managing an agile project using GreenHopper and how to achieve the best value for your team.

Time tracking with hours

As explained in earlier section, GreenHopper allows you to select time tracking and accordingly the burndown chart information is displayed to you.

Go to your team board configuration screen, under Estimation tab configure the Time Tracking option, and select the Remaining Estimate and Time Spent option as shown in the following screenshot:

The time tracking information is available based on the Remaining Estimate and Time Spent field.

The original estimates for the technical tasks are added once the team creates the tasks for a Story. As the team works on the technical tasks, the hours are logged into the system against the technical tasks.

As shown in the preceding screenshot, based on logged work, the remaining time and time spent for the technical tasks is updated. The burndown chart will also display the updated data based on hours data updates.
