Create a Story
If you have permission to create stories, they can be created in 3 ways.
Ribbon Menu - Requirements Tab > New Story
Using the ribbon button will take you to the create story screen where you can set many attributes for the story.
Story List View
Creating a story in the story list view will add a new story directly in the grid. You can set most of the available attributes right in the view.
When you see a rich text box in TeamPulse you can use the quick linking feature. Click into the box and press [Ctrl + Spacebar], this will bring up the quick linker. You can create a new story, or persona, right from the quick linker.
