What's a good way to set up 'blocking' stories?

    Chris,


    One thing that I've done is to create a Story card Property called "Blocked by", of type Card.  Then for each applicable Transition, I set the "Blocked by" property to "Not Set" in the begining state.  Thus, if this property is set, the dev. engineer can quickly determine what is blocking them.  If it's not set, the state change is allowed.


    This type of "Not set" precondition should work for most types of card properties.


    I've attached a pic of the transition.


    Regards,


    Tim

    There is an example using a property of type card called "depend on' in the Scrum template. This is used to link cards together via properties and is used in the "Dependency Chart" at the bottom of the overview page. This chart helps to give insight into which cards are blocking other cards.


    Thanks
