Hello JetBrains team,
As far as YT 4.0 is available to update we did this. So now questions started raising.
- Columns on a board are based on State field which is historically quite rich in YT. At the same time agile board doesn't make a lot of sense with all 16 states as columns. We have tickets in nearly all states now and we'll just lose quite a lot of info if we move them into 3-4 states. Would it be reasonable to create new default field called 'Reason' for example so all card that go into 'Fixed/Done' will have a reason attached like 'Won't fix' or 'Invalid'. It's clear that such cards shouldn't appear on Scrum board because of planning phase but it seems that they may appear in Kanban.
- It would be useful to see backlog in Kanban mode too. Curently it requires to create a sprint to have a backlog. Though we don't really need sprints since we don't follow this Scrum rule. Yet we have kind of time-boxed release interval which are flexible enough and Kanban fits best here.
- How to move cards out of the board in Kanban on Done? We can have a state called 'Closed' for example (not a column) and move cards there after 'Done' but this will create constant yellow box on the top that some issues has states that is not board.
