Product Owner - Do you know how to build/update the backlog?
  v14.0 Posted at 24/09/2020 1:29 PM by Tiago Araujo

​The Product Owner is responsible for owning the Product backlog. See the video on "Do you know how to be a good Product Owner?" 

There are three options for how to add new PBI (Product Backlog item) to the backlog:

  1. Emails​
    Bad Example - This is a poor way to add a PBI as you can’t order emails by the business priority​
  2. Visual Studio Team Services - E.g. https://ssw.visualstudio.com
    ​​​​Figure: Good Example - VSTS allows you to enter an item into the backlog, in any priority order
  3. Team Companion (Recommended)
    Figure: Team Companion lets you convert an email to a PBI, giving you the best of both worlds

    Note: You can also create a PBI using VSTS and attach and email directly if needed, without using Team Companion
