Enable project administrators to define how to enforce a practice across the product consistently. For example, same-level nested items contradict with certain methodologies, however, the product only enforces on the Sprint Backlog by disabling ordering, while allowing users to items on same-level nested Product Backlogs. In addition the Sprint Backlog or Task Board do not show parents with same-level work items, but the associated planning summaries show the “hidden” work items.

1. Allow the teams to decide and the project admin which rules to enforce and follow.
2. Enforce the selected rules consistently across the product.

See [this](https://willys-cave.ghost.io/nested-same-type-work-item-backlogs-create-ghosts/) blog post for a simple walkthrough.
