Move individual tasks from a user story to a given sprint

In Taiga, I see that individual tasks that are part of a user story cannot be pulled into the sprint.
Instead, the complete story itself needs to be pulled into the sprint.

Is there a way where I can just add tasks that are part of a user story into the sprint?

Hi @Varunp

In Taiga we have two types of tasks inside the sprint: user story tasks (inside their user story) and storyless tasks.

You have two options here:

  1. Create this tasks like storyless tasks
    This may not be the best solution for you because you will lose the conection with the user story.

  2. Split the user story with the tasks that you need to add to the sprint.
    For this solution, you need to create a new story with the tasks.

I hope one of these options solves your problem.

Thank you @tdelatorre for your response.

As you mentioned the 1st option will not work for me.
For the 2nd option, I will need to create a duplicate of the same user story for each sprint which again is not the right way to move forward.

According to Scrum, user stories should be short, for several reasons but mainly:

  • to be easy to estimate
  • to be independent
  • can be finished in a sprint

Having a user story that involves several sprints is not the best way, in agile terms.

Let me know if you need more help.
