The Epic Progress app displays a high-level view of the children associated with epic stories in a selected release. Use this app to help you determine whether:
- The work is logically divided between the iterations
- There should be a reallocation of the user stories to other iterations
- The epic is progressing as expected
- Any stories are blocked
Definition: An epic (or parent) user story is a story that has child user stories. A leaf user story is found at the bottom of the story tree and can be assigned to a release and iteration.
Summary of app data
By choosing a release, the associated epic user stories and leaf user stories are distributed into swim lanes according to iteration. Leaf user stories that have no parent are located in the first row. Leaf user stories in the selected release that have not been associated with an iteration are located in the No Iteration column.
Each leaf user story is color-coded according to the status associated with the story. A legend is included that details the meaning of the colors. The plan estimate of the user story is displayed on the card for each user story.
At the bottom of the card is a progress bar that displays the completion percentage of the tasks associated with the user story. The completion percentage is based on all the tasks associated with the user story. Specifically, this is calculated as:
pctgComplete = (( story.TaskEstimateTotal - story.TaskRemainingTotal ) / story.TaskEstimateTotal) * 100
