Manage sprints

Sprints are the smallest units of time in the agile development cycle. A scrum master creates the sprints.

A sprint can be of any length, but typically takes between one and four weeks to finish. The scrum master creates one or more sprints from within a group. Sprints can be generated for each group. All sprints within a release must fit within the release start and end dates.

Use the following Related Links on the sprint form to manage a sprint and track its progress:

  • Sprint Planning: opens the sprint planning board for this sprint and shows the related group backlog. You can move stories in or out of the sprint in the sprint planning board, or rank the stories in the sprint in the sequence they should be worked.
  • Story Progress Board: opens the progress board for the stories in this sprint. Use the progress board to change the status of stories by dragging and dropping the story objects across the board. Edit stories directly by clicking the access icons on the story objects.
  • Task Progress Board: opens the progress board for the scrum tasks in this sprint. Use the progress board to change the status of these tasks by dragging and dropping task objects across the board. Edit tasks directly by clicking the access icons on the task objects.
  • Burndown Chart: displays a chart that compares ideal sprint progress with the actual progress of the assignment group for the sprint. The burndown chart helps the scrum master to make constant adjustments throughout the sprint to keep the group on track.
