Work in progress (wip)

Tracks how many opened stories in your projects.


An example of a work in progress widget


This widget will help your team stay focused on a continuous flow of development. It will help spot when too much work gets started at the same time.

You can set a treshold that fits for your team. Most teams have agree on a rule of 1 open story per developer at a time. If you had 4 developers, you could set it to 3 and 5. Whenever too many stories are open at the same time, it will show by changing color.


Green

Everything is fine, everyone is working on the good number of stories.

Orange

The team is starting to work on too many stories at the same time.

Red
It's time to stop and help developers get unstock on those stories, because they are piling up.
