Product Backlog Template

Prioritize your work items cumulated in the backlog and ensure everyone’s work is optimized and product goals are reached.

Product Backlog Template

Arrange your agile backlog to release new features and provide iterations in an easy and simple way. Organize the items accordingly to their importance or preferred color-coding. Place the most essential items at the top of the product backlog to let the team know what needs to be delivered first. Visualize dependencies with lines or arrows.

As a product owner, serve as a connection between different teams at your organization. Re-prioritize the work in case of any additional customer feedback, changing estimates, or new requirements as long as they’re kept to a minimum and don’t disrupt the team’s focus, flow, and morale. No need to push the work to the team — your teammates can pull the issues from the backlog by themselves. Feel free to close out-of-scope issues once the backlog outgrows the team’s capacity. Check the product backlog and regularly maintain it before each iteration planning meeting.

With the product backlog template, you can:

  • Prioritize the list of work deriving from the roadmap and its requirements for your team.
  • Pull work from the backlog onto the board with a JQL filter instead of pushing it to your teammates.
  • Transform customers’ feedback into work items to effectively start working on them and deliver new solutions.
  • Tidy up your backlog by dragging issues into appropriate update zones to ensure prioritization is accurate and iterations have been introduced.
  • Prompt healthy debates and choices, keeping in mind not everything is a top priority.
