User Stories and References to Spreadsheets with data requirements 

Hello Everyone, 

I’m writing user stories for an analysis tool that includes multiple pre-populated fields as we as fields with  calculated values. Instead of describing requirements for each data field in the user story itseld (data source, default value, user edited/not user edited, required/not required, calculated/not calculated, calculation formula, inputs and outputs for formula) I created a matrix  with all the data fields and their requirements and would like to give references to this matrix from user stories. Is this a common practice to give references from user stories to different kinds of spreadsheets with detailed req-ts?  If there are changes to user stories later on and consequently to field requirements what would be the best way to  reflect these changes in the matrix so it’s clear where the change was and what the new and original requirement is.  I would appreciate your feedback a lot!

Yes. I would categorize them though - example: Mandatory fields, Optional fields, etc.

I would keep this spreadsheet in a sharepoint with version. And user story would reflect the version on which it was built.

It may sound routine, but the importance of operational decisions cannot be underestimated. After all, not a day goes by without even the smallest business making dozens, if not hundreds of operational decisions that may affect the bottom line. Elevate these to large scale companies and we are talking thousands, if not millions of actions that impa...

At first, I wanted to tell people how they should go about getting their IIBA certification. But then I thought the best way to do this is by actually telling “how did I achieve my own CBAP?” So, friends here is my story. I started working as Business Analyst in 2002. I have used multiple elicitation techniques (such as interviewing,...
