Define is where you ideate and define your product. On the right, content area of define, you can see your Epics, Stories and Requirements. Craft doesn’t show Improvements, Tasks and Bugs here since this area is intended for reviewing product definition in an easy, visual way. For reviewing and managing all items in your product, we’ve created the Stories workspace.
Since everything you create in your Craft editor is structures, you can then view your definition document in multiple layouts:
The Document View:
Designed to be read and edited like, well… a document. Great for writing detailed user stories, requirements and acceptance criteria, manage designs and states and communicate it to members of your team.
You can add Themes and Epics to your document from the left panel, and add stories inline directly in the right content area
Story map is the perfect way to ideate and see your entire story in a sticky note style view. here you can easily create your user flow, drag cards around and set priorities using dividers. Story maps are shown per Theme, so Epics become your Story Map backbone (the top row) and under each Epic all of its User Stories.
Searching and Filtering
Craft offer a powerful searching and filtering throughout the product. You can search and filter with ten’s of available modifiers, see instant results inside our search panel or apply them to any workspace, you can also save your search for later or export their results as a .csv file.
