The Program Board provides a holistic, fullscreen view of your Program Increment.
From this screen you can:
View the work scheduled in a given increment for each team in your Program, as shown by the horizontal swimlanes
View features shared across multiple teams in the ‘Shared Team Features’ swimlane at the top of the screen
Identify when work doesn’t align with the timings shown in the roadmap
Access the Team Planning Board by clicking on the team name
Access the Increment Roadmap screen to schedule features ('Edit Roadmap' button)
Filter the Program Board to create greater focus for team syncs and stakeholder meetings
This view is an overview of the Program and is not designed for the scheduling of work or creation of dependencies. Team's schedule their work and create dependencies in the Team Planning Board.
Managing Scheduling Conflicts
From version 4.3.0, Easy Agile Programs offers a highly visual way to identify when work doesn’t align with the timings shown in the roadmap.
A warning sign will appear on the Program Board to indicate when team level issues have been scheduled after a feature’s deadline.
Easily correct the timings to reschedule issues directly from the Program Board by either extending the feature across more sprints, or rescheduling team level issues using drag and drop.
Filtering the Program Board
There are two ways you can focus your view on the Program Board:
To refine your view, click ‘View Settings’ in the navigation.
From this menu item, you can hide and show:
Healthy, At Risk and Blocker dependency lines can be toggled on/off, particularly helpful if you have a high number of healthy dependency that make it harder to see the higher risk items
To filter your Program Board, click ‘Filters’ in the navigation. Using this menu item will allow you to filter down your Program Board to show only the issues that match the filter.
You can filter by:
Dependencies - Blocker (red), At Risk (orange), Healthy (green)
Status - To Do, In Progress, Done
To clear the filters use the cross on the filter field or the ‘Clear Filters’ link in the top right hand corner of the screen.
