Agile Boards

Two agile boards are created for the project: one for use by the project managers and another for use by the development team.

The Project Management Board is built to track the development of major features and long-term strategic planning. This board represents the relationship between epics and user stores. Only issues with these types are displayed on the board. Swimlanes are defined by epics. Estimation for the user stories is counted in story points.
