How does it work?

  • Create and name your planning buckets. For example, Months, Quarters, Release Names, Priorities, or Sizes
  • Drag and drop your candidate cards into the appropriate buckets

If you want stakeholder feedback on your choices, click on the Thumbs icon on the top nav and select the items you want feedback on. Then watch Obo Priority do its magic. You will get relevant stakeholder feedback fast—without having to be a market research whiz.

How do I get my list into Obo Organize?

All you need to get started is a list of the items you want to organize.

There are multiple ways to get your data into Obo Organize:

  • You can import your list from Jira
  • You can import your list from a spreadsheet
  • You can manually create the list by adding your items one at a time
  • You can cut and paste multiple items at the same time. Select the name field of the first blank item, then paste either a list of names, or two columns where the first item is the name, and the second is the description. Obo Organize will create the entire list from this single paste
Or any combination of the above. Obo Organize will append new items to the Candidate list on the left of the main screen as they are added.
