It’s missing on Monday.com a structured way to help agile teams to groom and prioritise their backlogs. Since we have lots of experience with Agile methodologies and app development, we decided to move forward and bridge this gap with the Story Mapping app so it’ll help teams create a holistic outline of the user’s interactions with the product, evaluate which steps have the most benefit for the user, and prioritize what should be built next.
What it does
Story maps capture the journey a user takes with the product, including high level activities and tasks they undertake. Rather than a traditional backlog, story mapping helps teams visualize real life workflows. Instead of prioritizing user stories against each other, story maps let you see everything within the context of high level activities a user accomplishes while using the product making sure nothing gets missed. User stories are mapped as items in Monday.com and are managed in your existing boards.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
- Learning Monday.com Apps framework SDK in a short timeframe.
- Using Firebase for data persistence and deployment
- Configuring the authorization flow between Monday.com and Firebase, validating and exchanging tokens
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of the Story Mapping app beautiful UI and UX seamlessly integrated with Monday.com.
What we learned
We have learned to work with Google Firebase for the backend of the app.
What's next for Story mapping
We plan to introduce swimlanes to group cards by versions/sprints, zoom in/out the map, export options, fine grained permissions and notifications.
