We use Mingle for managing our agile software development process and found some repetitive tasks which we wanted to automate.
As part of our deployment to the test environment, we had to manually move all “ready to deploy” stories to status “deployed on test env”. With every release to production, we had to move them all again from tested to done. Then, we carefully copied all story numbers and titles to a Release Notes email, which was sent out to all interested parties within our company. Not exactly a lot of hassle but we did it often enough (and found it boring enough) to think about automation.
