The latest (small) update to Corrello adds the ability to see what cards are in your backlog based on both the list they are in and the labels they have assigned.

backlog_lists_labels

For the labels you can see how many cards with each label are on the backlog, how many are currently in progress and an estimat of how long it would take to complete them all. This can be especially useful if you use labels in Trello to group cards into Epics (or other collections of cards). This way you can see how long it would take to complete an individual Epic assuming you focused the efforts of the team on that one piece of work.

For the lists you can see how many cards are in each and an estimate of how long it will take to complete all the cards in that list assuming you focused all your efforts on completing those cards. This can be useful for Kanban teams so you can be sure you have enough work ready for the team to work on, as well as an estimate of the size of the outstanding backlog. If you are using lists to store upcoming releases this also gives an idea of how long it will take to complete each upcoming release, particularly useful in combination with the project burnup charts in Corrello.

You can check out the new features in your dashboards here. If you don’t have a Corrello account you can check out all the features and try out our 14 day free trial here.

In the screenshot above we are reporting estimates in terms of cards and sprints to complete the work. For Kanban teams this would be shown in weeks and for teams using Story points this would be reported in terms of points rather than cards.

This is the second addition to the backlog tab in recent months, after the inclusion of the Burnup charts previously. There should be more improvements coming here in future, if you have suggestions please do comment below or drop us an email :)
