Visual Studio Team Services
We use VSTS to manage product backlogs and plan/execute Sprints. I'd like to be able to expose certain parts of a product backlog (Epics, Themes) as suggestions in Canny, so that business leaders can weigh-in on their relative importance. I just don't want to have to manually manage/synchronize Canny topics with VSTS backlog Epics. I dont necessarily want to share ALL epics with Canny, so maybe utilize VSTS TAGS to indicate which should be exposed through an integration with Canny.
If possible, can you please provide integration with VSTS to create task once they have been planned.
Nice, yes integration to VSTS would be awesome!!
@Hannibal Baldwin: I haven't used VSTS before. Would you mind expanding a bit on how exactly this would work?
Would the integration sync Canny posts with VSTS backlog items?
@Andrew Rasmussen: Exactly. We just created out feature requested board in Canny and every single item came from a backlog item in our VSTS system. They can range from a task, Product Backlog Item, Feature or Epic to a Bug. Ideally, I even if I had a simple way to create an item in VSTS and then associate it with an item in Canny or even automagically create one in canny and then get user posts and votes coming through on out items in VSTS
We can even do a screen-share so I can show how VSTS works
@Hannibal Baldwin: I should be upfront that our roadmap is full through December, and that this integration would be in our Growth plan with JIRA ($200/mo).
If you're still up for it, I'd love to do a screen-share sometime.
@Andrew Rasmussen: That is no problem. I feature like that is priceless so no info is lost in translation saving time and helping us get what clients need as efficient as possible. You let me know when is convenient this week to connect and do a screenshare.
