I'm exploring Trello as a Kanban tool, and am hung up on how to track story points with it. This isn't something that Trello natively supports, so I've been re-purposing labels to carry this information.
This has a couple of significant short-comings. For example:
- There's currently a limit of six labels, so I can't carry the entire Planning Poker sequence.
- It makes it hard to color-code blocked or pull-ready tasks unless I leave red and green unused, further limiting my available labels.
- There's no obvious way to automatically calculate story points or WIP without digging into the API or writing an external utility.
How can I effectively track story points with Trello without creating side-effects as outlined above?
