Adding a New Story

Stories are the standard unit of work in Clubhouse and represent individual Features, Bugs, and Chores.

You can access the Stories page by selecting Stories in the Clubhouse sidebar menu.

By default all Stories appear in the Kanban-style view grouped according to Story status, Project, and priority. Stories can be dragged up and down to reprioritize. Priorities in Clubhouse are structured vertically. The higher up in the column the Story, Epic, or Task, the higher its priority.

Creating Stories

You can create a Story from almost anywhere in the app by clicking the Create Story button and the chain icon to grab a direct link. 

You can also also use the keyboard shortcut ("N") on the Stories page to open the Create Story dialog. 


For a direct link to create Stories, you can go into the Create Story dialog and grab the permanent organizational Create Story link. 


Once in the dialog box, you must add a Story Title in order to save. The Project will default to the one you used previously unless you select a different one. You can also:

  • add a Description
  • specify a Story Type
  • add Story Relationships
  • assign the Story to an Epic
  • specify Story owner(s)
  • set estimate points or time,
  • set a due date
  • assign a workflow state
  • assign additional followers (Requesters & Owners are automatically added) 
  • add labels

Once complete, click "Create Story". 

Now that the Story is created, you have the option of adding smaller Tasks to it as well as entering comments and attaching files. Re-open the Story by clicking on it at the top of the Stories page (if you have difficulty finding it, search for it in the search bar at the top of the Stories page and click on it when it appears in the results)
