BluePrint - Guidelines

We use BluePrints to capture ideas, features, requirements and design options for Sahana Eden components. These can either be a simple collection of rough ideas about features you need or formal documentation following our BluePrint Template.

This can start with a simple User Story (or a full Use Case). These can be simple stories which describe how Sahana Eden could be used in different scenarios.

A good User Story should answer the following questions:

  • Who the user is
  • What they want the application to do for them?
  • Why they want it to do that? (Purpose)

A <type of user> wants the system to <do something for them> so that <can achieve a goal>.

BluePrints can be used by yourself or other contributors to:

  • develop and evaluate solutions
  • develop Projects for others to work on
  • develop test cases
  • write documentation
