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.

We are now familiar with the Scrum task board and importance of the task board for the team. We covered the default Scrum task board provided by GreenHopper.

We covered using GreenHopper Simplified Workflow to add new status and new column to our task board which can further be configured based on team-specific requirements.

We covered further how to view items on the task board and to update issue status and details on the task board itself. In the upcoming chapter, we will be covering how we can use Quick filter functionality to filter only the relevant issues on the task board.

We used GreenHopper drag-and-drop functionality to rank tasks on the task board itself to divide it better among the team members. We covered some common keyboard shortcuts to help us to work efficiently with Jira and GreenHopper.

In the next chapter, we will be covering the horizontal grouping functionality, Swimlane, and how to group issues on task group.
