What is the done state?

The done state can be one of the following Pivotal Tracker states:

  • finished
  • delivered 
  • done 

Usually it is the last state that your team controls. For example, if a different team is responsible for QA on delivered stories, the done state for your team should be delivered.

Some charts are highly dependent on the done state such as the progression meter, the burn down chart and the velocity chart.

Take the time to configure the right done state for your team.
