What is a planning folder?

Create and populate all the planning folders you need to capture the work you are planning.

A planning folder is a way to organize work into feasible chunks and monitor its progress. When you've thought about the general categories the work falls into, you can to set up planning folders that reflect those ideas.

A planning folder can represent:

  • A set of tasks, such as Iteration 3, or "Initial infrastructure development."
  • A period of time, such as "April," or "Q2-2010."
  • A phase of development, such as "Testing" or "Deployment."
  • A component of the product, such as "Chapter 12" or "Rear stabilizer."
Tip: It often makes sense to set up planning folders after you have outlined and analyzed the features you plan to deliver. See Define the scope of your project.
