#29. Can you use a definition of done for a sprint?
I outline six ideas for a definition of done for a user story and three ideas for a definition of done for a sprint.
According to the Scrum Guide, the definition of done helps us agree on when a product backlog item is complete. A sprint, on the other hand, is a time-boxed event so it’s done when the time is up.
But my teams have found it useful to have a definition of done for a sprint too. And one of our criteria is to run the Power Apps Solution Checker on our custom solutions.
The Power Apps Solution Checker (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/common-data-service/use-powerapps-checker) is now generally available in Dataverse. It runs hundreds of checks on your plug-ins, customer workflow activities, web resources and configurations and warns you if there are any issues. Running the Power Apps Solution Checker at the end of every sprint helps my team ensure that their solutions are supported, maintainable, extensible and won’t cause any performance issues.
What definition of done do you use for your user stories? Do you use a definition of done for sprints or releases? I’d love to know in the comments.
