Stories and Tasks Overview
Scrum Mate is an agile management tool with a strong background of Scrum and Kanban. The term user story is widely used in agile software development to describe small functionality that will be visible to the user. User stories are outcomes that represent value to our customer or end user. Tasks, on the other hand, are actions we need to perform to deliver results.
Efficiency is about delivering more outcomes. Therefore, Scrum Mate is designed to help teams to focus on results (stories) while enabling team members to track tasks smoothly. In Scrum Mate, tasks are always connected to a story. Here are some examples of stories and tasks.
