User Stories for Digital Asset Management

As we prepare for the demos and evaluation of a digital asset management system, we feel the next best logical step is to create a list of user stories. These stories will help us better evaluate how the software works for our needs as a church.

User stories are a tool used in software development to help the stakeholder communicate the expected needs of a product with the developers.

“In software development and product management, a user story is an informal, natural language description of one or more features of a software system. User stories are often written from the perspective of an end user or user of a system.”  via Wikipedia

So as we move forward with this project, we need to hear from you! Please use the Google Sheet linked below to help describe the needs of the users of the digital asset management system.

There are three elements that are needed for each story:

  • Role
  • Process
  • Expected Results

The role defines the type of user (IE: Photographer, administrator, etc). The process describes the type of work done. And the expected results describe what you would expect this type of user to do.

A few ground rules:

  • Don’t worry about duplication. We will combine them later if needed.
  • Please don’t delete other peoples work.
  • Help us see the blind spots. We need to know the ways people would use the software.

    Obviously the purpose of anything that is uploaded needs to be ministry minded (for church use at some point)…

    Just to clarify Brent, will this system available to the whole church or just official church entities & ministries?

    For example, beyond being a baptized church member I have no official standing as far as my own ministry goes but I do create content for Adventist church website use (among other things) with expected results being able to provide content that’s readily available for download & use or hot-linking to with the ability to update files quarter by quarter or as updates are warranted. Is the system open to someone like me who is doing something in a supportive but unofficial capacity?

      s to add a local church volunteer (and ultimately vouch for them uploading content that they own the rights to, they can do that.
