Product Owner Permissions

Hi,

First of all, congratulation for this app, it's a great tool!

Now my question, I was wondering if it would be possible for product owners to register backlog items. I have set a product owner, but the add item doesn´t show up. Any possibility?

Thanks,

Hi Vitor,


I’m glad to know that you like the tool!


You are absolute right: from the Scrum point of view, the Product Owner should be able to register backlog items.
The tool does not allow that yet, but I have just scheduled it for the next versions.

Meanwhile, one possible work-around, would be create a new Role at your project with Scrum Master permissions and named it “Product Owner”. The downside is that it gives too much power to the Product Owner. But if the guy is inside your Team, you can ask him to just register items keep away from the other Scrum Master stuff.

Hi Klot,

I've already done that, my problem is that my product onwer shows up as Scrum Master at the summary page. Any workaround ?

Cheers,
