Use the card list

Workstreams are not available for all customers.

You can create a card list on a workstream and add the cards to iterations.

The card list can function as a backlog of work for the workstream.

Add cards to an iteration

You must create an iteration before you can add cards to it. For information, see Create an iteration in a workstream.

  5. If you are using story points, enter a value in the Estimation field.

  6. Click Save.

    The card is moved to the iteration, and the iteration metrics reflect the number of cards and points.

    You can also drag and drop a card from the Unplanned cards group into the iteration, or click Add card to add a new card to the iteration.

If you have created an iteration process board, all unplanned cards on the card list appear in the Backlog column. When a card is moved into another column, it becomes part of the active iteration. Cards that you add to the iteration in the card list are added to a column based on their status.
