Collaborate by using agile-development features

Features in an agile-development model help you plan and implement new capabilities in your application. By tracking development changes in the context of a feature, you can maintain functional requirements and project status directly in your application.

For example, you can create a feature to support requests for new training modules in your application. Your team can then map development tasks, such as defining a data table of available courses, to this feature by creating stories, bugs, and other work items in Agile Workbench. Because features support traceability from requirements to work items, and work items to implementation, your project status is updated in real time.

The following figures illustrate the types of information that are generated for you when you use features.

Features are available in both Dev Studio and App Studio. As a best practice, choose the workspace that aligns with your role and expertise to manage your features.
