Advice and answers from the ScrumDo Team

Work cards can be categorized and/or associated with other cards in many ways. One of the more powerful ways is to use tags. For example, perhaps you have a work card described as follows: “As a car buyer I want to see the current list of cars that are available to buy.”  Because this work is related to an inventory function, you may want to associate this card with an “inventory” tag.  

Generally, users are free to define as many tags as they want. There are a couple of tags in ScrumDo, however, that have special meaning. These special meaning tags are used to signal your teams that the work or activity related to that item merits special attention.  Tags with special meaning in ScrumDo include the ”urgent,” “blocked” and "public" tags.

Users should assign the “blocked” tag to a card when no further work or activity related to that card can be done because of some internal or external factor. Similarly, users should assign an “urgent” tag to a card that has transitioned to a state of elevated importance (a state viewed typically from a customer point of view). When these special tags are used in ScrumDo, cards will be surrounded by either a yellow or orange border. The "public" tag is used in the sharing feature available to premium plan accounts.

When creating a tag within a card, it will show up on the front of your card once the card is saved.

 

Managing Tags

Users with project / workspace administrator privileges can manage that environments tags in the Settings section.  The figure below shows how easy it is to create new tags for your project simply by clicking the “Add tag” button within the interface.  You can view, edit, delete, and search for your tags by clicking on the respective icons to the right of each tag.  Note:  when you search one of your tags, the results produced will be a listing of all the cards in your project / workspace that are associated with that particular tag
