Pega Community logo

Note: The following content, referenced from Pega Community, is included here to help you better achieve the module learning objectives.

Improve and adjust an application to your specific business needs by requesting a feature enhancement. You request an enhancement by creating a feedback item. Your development team triages feedback items and decides whether to implement or reject the enhancement, based on priority and available resources.

Before you begin: To provide context for the team and to speed up feature development through videos or screenshots, log in to your application in Google Chrome by using the HTTPS protocol.
  1. In the header of App Studio, click the Agile Workbench icon.

  2. Optional:

    To record a video or take screenshots, in the Agile Workbench tool, add the Pega Screen and Video Capture extension to your browser by clicking Install the plugin at the bottom of the tool, and then following the instructions in Google Chrome.

  3. In the header of the Agile Workbench tool, click Create work item Create Feedback .

  4. In the Name field, enter text that summarizes the change.

  5. In the Description field, enter text that includes the rationale for the change and details, such as use cases or metrics, that can help the team decide how to triage the feedback.

  6. In the Associated feature list, select a feature that relates to the enhancement.

  7. In the Priority field, select the relative importance of the enhancement.

    During triaging the development team uses this field to determine when they implement the feedback relative to other items in the product backlog.

  • Creating bugs to report feature defects

    Improve your application by identifying any issues that might have a negative impact and creating bugs that report feature defects. When you create bugs, your development team can track the defects, and then fix the issues to deliver an effective product.
