1. What is the best practice if there are more than one date related to a story (i.e., next action required vs target completion date)?
An example might be a story that requires people to submit a topic by next week, but then the owner of the story needs to summarize by the following week. The owner should see the story needs to be completed two weeks from now But for the owner, the story is in a “pending” state until the other team members submit their topic. The other team members should see an action is needed by next week.
2. It's clear how to work with tasks that have a clear ending point. What's the best way to manage on-going efforts (such as posting to a blog twice a week or checking on applicant submissions, etc.)?
