Product Direction - Project Management

Overview

This page contains the product direction for the Project Management group. The Project Management group enables teams to collaborate together on plans and requirements through issues and issue boards. The Project Management group is responsible for two distinct product categories:

Category Description
Issue Tracking Discuss implementations with your team within issues
Issue Boards Organize and prioritize your workflow
Time Tracking Track estimate time and time spent on the conclusion of an issue or merge request

If you'd like to discuss this strategy directly with the product manager for Project Management, please feel free to reach out to Gabe Weaver via e-mail

  Criteria 1 Criteria 2 Criteria 3
Minimum (3 of 3) simplifies collaboration reduces the friction to contributing aligned with market direction
Extreme (2 of 3) enhances the ability to build trust decreases manual effort increases clarity and purpose
