One problem I see is that if there is a dependent user story - for example, if my team is working on one thing and there is a dependent user story from another team - we can have a dependency created but we don't know if there is a change of status from the other team. That is something which is very important for Agile Central to look into so that if the other team makes any changes we will be notified as well.I think there is a missing link with the development activity. Some developers are pushing in new versions of the code, but you cannot make the link from the user story to a specific application version.A lot of the features that we would be looking to add, I am learning may not be within Agile Central, but part of another CA tool set.CA Agile Central does not have a workflow tool included.I think there needs to be some simplification. The team-level side can be challenging and complicated.
