User Stories are short descriptions of a feature told from the perspective of the person who desires the new capability, usually a user or customer of the system. As a result, they are a great tool for capturing the requirements of a feature from the perspective of an end user. By providing a user story, it allows the development team to gain a better understanding of the feature's purpose, scope, and expected outcome. This allows the team to better plan and execute the feature, ensuring that the user's needs are met. User stories are also helpful for providing the development team with clarity on the feature's acceptance criteria, helping to ensure that the feature is implemented according to the user's wishes.
