There are two fields in ZenTao to track the changes of stories. One is Status of Story and the other one is Stages of development. Now, let’s take a look at the two fields in details.

1. Story Status

There are four types of Status, Draft, Active, Changed and Closed. The corresponding actions are Create, Change and Review, Close and Activate. The status flow is shown as below.

2. Story Development Stages

Stage is to describe the stages of an activc story in development. The stages include Wait, Planned, Pojected, Developing, Developed, Testing, Tested, Accepted and Released.

How does a story change in development? One way is to change stage through editing. But the other way is preferred, which is to set the type of tasks, such as development and test, when creating stories. ZenTao will automatically calculate the stages according to the types of tasks. The rules are ,
2.1 If stories are not related to the projects or the plans, the stage will be “Wait”.
2.2 If stories are related to plans but not to projects, it will be “Planned”.  
2.3 If stories are related to projects but not decomposed to tasks, it will be “Projected”.
2.4 If stories are related to projects and decomposed to tasks:
      If one of the development tasks is being done while all the test tasks have not yet begun, then it will be “Developing".
      If all the development tasks are completed while all the test tasks have not yet been begun, then it will be “Developed”.
      If one of the test tasks has been begun, then it will be “Testing”.
      If all the test tasks are completed while some development tasks have not been completed, it will also be “Testing”.
      If both the test tasks and development tasks are completed, it will be “Tested”.
2.5 The stage of testifying should be confirmed manually by the project manager.
2.6 If the stories are closed for “Released”. It will be “Released”.
