In the previous two chapters, the simple application of ZenTao has been introduced for DEV team and QA team. Product team can do basic tasks and track management with ZenTao and QA team can do bug tracking. If you are a product manager, you may ask whether you can use ZenTao as a story management tool. The answer is YES.


In ZenTao, story management is provided, including creating stories, changing stories and evaluating stories. Now let’s see how to do story management.


1. Create Products

To create Stories, products must be created first. This is the same as in bug management mentioned in the previous chapter. Go to Product and click Add Product.

2. Create Stories

Once a product is created, you can add stories. Go to Product->Story and click Create.


Then add details of the Story.

  • When creating stories, you can choose the source of stories, which means who submit the Story, such as from customers.
  • Three key elements of stories are title, description and acceptance. These three field are required.
  • You can specify fields like the priority of stories and estimated man hours.
  • You can also choose who will review the story. If a reviewer is set, the status of the Story will be draft. If check the box “No Review”, it will be Active.

3. Change Requirements

ZenTao provides professional process for changing stories. Modifications to Title, Description, Acceptance and attachments of Stories must be done according to the workflow of story change. Then the status of the story will be changing/in change.


Choose the story you want to Change and you will the page below.


4. Review Stories

4.1 Click the "+" in History to view the details before and after the change.


4.2 Review stories and select review decisions. Click the Review on the page of the Story you want to review.


On review page, you can make review decisions which can be Pass, Clarify, and Reject.
