Once we have a product, we can create our first story.


Product managers may be used to write stories or specifications. Stories about a product usually are defined in a Word file. However, we suggest that your write stories in ZenTao be written by functions. Generally speaking, stories are excerpted from the original Word file and recorded in ZenTao as separate stories. According to Scrum, it is a user story. A user story is to describe user types, user objectives or values of the objectives. With all the information, it’s very convenient to communicate and cooperate with the team.


1. Log in ZenTao as a product owner;

2. Go the Product->Story->Add Story.


3. Click the menu “Add Story” at the right, and the page to add a story will pop out.

  • The title of the Story is required;
  • It can be left empty temporarily for the plan and module the Story belong to.
  • Check "No Review" in Reviewed By, so the Story that is about to be added is activated. Only activated story can be linked to the projects and then to be developed.
  • Mailto can be set, so relevant members can be notified of all changes in the Story by emails.
  • Keywords can help you search. You can set keywords, so content can be searched by keywords.


You can also upload images as stories. Click Batch Add.


Then click Upload->Add Files. Images in .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, and .png can be uploaded.


After the images are uploaded, ZenTao will take the name of the image as the title of the story and the image as its content.
