In Youtrack, how would I keep track of issues that are suitable for inclusion in the next sprint? The backlog is of course larger than just the next sprint.
Generally when going over the issue list we see stories/tasks that would be suitable. We can drag them to the top of the list, but:
- We are usually looking at filtered views at that moment, so the 'top' is not absolute.
- We have Youtrack set up to sort on change date, so all kinds of items 'jump' to the top
The best I can think of is using a 'Next sprint' tag. This would require:
- Removing the tag if an item is put into the sprint
- Regularly reviewing the items tagged this way, because priorities can change
Does anyone have a better idea?
There are plenty of questions about prioritization here, but they are about the process (determining value etc.), and not the practical implementation (in YouTrack).
I'm asking from the viewpoint of the PO/SM.
