9.4.1. Classification

When a large number of stories is in the system, it can be difficult to sort through them when planning an iteration. Issue classification fields such as importance and urgency allow the main issue list to be sorted so that the most relevant issues are grouped together. The list of issues to be considered during planning is effectively shortened.

Since issues can be assigned to projects and components, if particular projects are deemed to be important, then the stories in those projects can be listed using the available project filters from the issue list. Once again, that allows the list of stories to consider to be more manageable during planning.

While it can be useful to sort and filter the issue list to aid in planning, it is assumed that the users planning an iteration have knowledge of the tasks that need to be done. AgileTrack simply helps organize the information so that planning can be more smooth and effective.
