@Deskana says in T1155:

If I drag cards around on a board, it should live update. This is a pretty much a blocker for the Mobile teams adopting Phabricator as their main project management.

Marking T129: Phabricator boards should live update as a blocker accordingly, although this is a tough one.

As per T434 , in the following days I plan to scan the levels of use of Phabricator by all the WMF product & engineering teams. Please keep the description of this task up to date.

Who should be the owner of this task? It would be good to have a point of contact.

I'd recommend Kristen the apps teams scrum master take this on.

@KLans_WMF, fyi this works for me. :)

If/when you decide to move to Phabricator entirely, will you need migration of Trello cards to Phabricator tasks, aka someone to run T821: Trello -> Phabricator migration script?

FYI, I'm going to try out burndown charts with these app team sprints (Phab board links below, this is also a trial of Phab for sprint planning/working for the team). These sprints kick off on Feb 30.

How did these sprints go, and are there any updates on potential Phabricator migration plans?

Hi, I'm preparing the Phabricator migration statistics for the Developer-Advocacy quarterly review. Currently T434: Show percentage of teams migrated to Phabricator for project management reports that your situation with Phabricator is

0	  Not started

Is this accurate?

Actually, the app team is at ".75" according to the legend. We are now
actively using Phab for sprints and general backlog management, but we
still have our legacy stuff in Trello.

Thank you! Your progress has been reported in T434. If you want help migrating your Trello legacy cards, please contact @Spage.

Any news on this front? I just want to know when can we consider this transition completed and this task Resolved.

The final step is to run the Trello import script. We've been holding off
on this while we get used to Phabricator and figure out ideal workflows.
We're probably getting to a place where we can think about doing a last
pass on trello backlogs and asking S to help us run the script. Given Lyon
hackathon travel, etc. I predict the soonest we could call this "done"
would be the end of June.

The end of June is approaching... Could you share an update, please? 140chars is enough. :)

As it's end of June now: Any news to share?
