Dependency Status Dashboard

The Dependency Status Dashboard app shows dependencies between user stories for a series of upcoming iterations. This assists groups with forecasting potential blockers or stoppages in the next iteration. Product owners will be able to see what teams they need to talk to about their dependencies.

Dependency Status Dashboard

Dependencies are based on predecessor and successor settings among user stories. Any iterations with a State field value of Planning or Committed will display in the app.

Warnings will appear in the app when a dependency is:

  • Not yet scheduled
  • Scheduled too late to start work on the original story
  • Marked as blocked
  • Only immediate story predecessors are listed in the app
  • Be sure to set the state of your iteration to Accepted after it has ended to prevent old data from being displayed
