Visualizing user stories using the Tygron Platform – Beginner guide

After following the Quick start training, as well as completing multiple tutorials on the Tygron Support Wiki, the newest intern of Tygron has been tasked to apply his newly obtained knowledge in the form of an example case study. He has documented his process by writing this article and he will take you through the choices he made and the places he acquired his information from.
