In the Planning Board, artifact cards are displayed in ranked sequence within each swim lane. Using Planning Board, you can quickly add new cards (quick add), edit cards, move cards within a swimlane to rank them and move cards between swim lanes to reassign them to other planning folders.

Add Artifacts Quickly

You can add artifacts (quick add) in select planning folders with minimum required artifact information.

  1. Select a planning folder in one of the swim lanes. The quick add ( ) button at the top of the swim lane is enabled.

  2. Click the quick add ( ) button. The Create Artifact window appears.

  3. Select a tracker type from the TRACKER drop-down list.

  4. Type a title and description. You can select the USE TITLE AS A DESCRIPTION check box to copy the title you type to the DESCRIPTION text box.

    Artifacts support @mentions: Artifact description and comments now support @mentions and users called out via @mentions are added to the monitoring list. Include usernames with “@” as prefix (for example, @mphippard) to add users to the monitoring list.

  5. Click Submit. The artifact is added as the bottommost artifact in the swim lane (planning folder). You may choose to rank the artifact (if you have rank permission) or update the artifact with more meta data later. To update the artifact, click the artifact ID link.

Rank a Card

If you have the requisite permission, you can drag and drop a card about or below the other cards within a swim lane to position it in the order you want the artifact addressed.

Reassign (move) a Card

In the course of planning your release, you may want to assign an artifact from the product backlog to a specific sprint or team, or move an artifact from one sprint to another. To do this, just drag and drop the artifact card from one swim lane to the other.

To be able to move cards between swim lanes, you need to have the permission to update planning folders and rank artifact cards.

  1. Click the artifact ID link.


    The View Artifact page appears.

  2. Make the necessary changes and click Update to update the artifact and return to the Planning Board.

    To quickly edit an artifact:

  3. Click the edit artifact ( ) button in a card. The Edit Artifact window appears.

  4. You can edit the following in the Edit Artifact window:

    • Artifact title

    • Artifact description

    • Primary and secondary attributes

      You have two expandable frames, Primary Attributes and Secondary Attributes, that list fields you can edit. Primary attributes include Priority, Status, Assigned To, Team, Estimated Effort, Remaining Effort, Actual Effort and Points. The expandable frames and the fields listed in them depend on your application configuration that you set in Tracker Settings. For example:

      • Configurable fields which are enabled. For more information, see Enable or Disable Tracker Fields.
      • User-defined fields (flex fields) with the field type Text Entry and Single Select and set as Required (Tracker Settings > Tracker Administration > Create Field) or workflow configured. For more information, see Create Custom Tracker Fields and Create a Tracker Workflow.

        By default, the following field types which you select while creating a user-defined field (Tracker Settings), are non-editable from the planning board’s Edit Artifact window: Multiple select, Date picker and User picker.

    • Comments

      In this expandable frame, in addition to adding comments, you can view the last five comments for an artifact.

    Artifacts support @mentions: Artifact description and comments now support @mentions and users called out via @mentions are added to the monitoring list. Include usernames with “@” as prefix (for example, @mphippard) to add users to the monitoring list.

  5. After editing an artifact, click Update.
