Planning Poker for Azure introduces convenient ways of estimating your work items in Azure DevOps. The app facilitates collaboration and discussion aimed at consensus-based estimations.
Our extension delivers a native-like estimation experience for Azure DevOps users.
Interactive Poker Game
Create Interactive Poker Game with work items that you would like to estimate with your team, invite team members using a shareable link.
The work item to be estimated is picked up by game’s Moderators or participants (this is configurable). Every participant automatically follows the currently estimated work item and sees the estimated item’s details, voting status by other team members and game’s scope.
Moderator can reveal votes to show the Voting Summary panel. Then it’s possible to pick up the most voted estimate, save it and move to the next item, or Reset voting if consensus was not met.
You can configure game’s scope in a variety of ways:
Estimate from Work Item view directly
Estimate your work items on the go directly from the work item details view - use our embedded interactive section.
You can vote, review results and save estimates without leaving the work item details page. Our extension is always up to date with your team votes (they are automatically synchronized in the background while you focus on estimation and discussion).
Configurable Card Decks & Estimation Fields per Work Item Type
Different work items could be estimated in different ways. You can estimate with Story Points, Remaining Work, Hours, Effort, or your custom fields - the app gives you the flexibility to pick your own method. For every work item type, you can pick a different Estimation Field and configure a custom Card Deck.
Moderator holds a full control over estimation game including work item selection, revealing the votes, resetting votes, finishing the game. Other participants interactively follow the Moderator’s actions and provide estimates.
Keep track of team members who are online and can contribute to estimation process.
