Sprints in scrum Users with the scrum_master role can create sprints, which are the smallest units of time in the scrum development cycle. A sprint is executed by a team that might share members with other teams in other sprints. Velocity charts track the capabilities of teams over several sprints, helping to make estimates of team capacity more accurate over time. Stories are added to a sprint in a planning meeting by the scrum master and the sprint team members and form the sprint backlog. The scrum master can add stories to the sprint from the story, release, and sprint records, or from the planning board. Prerequisites Before attempting to create sprints, ensure that you have created a release, a release backlog, and at least one team to work on the stories in that backlog. You cannot create a sprint without attaching it to a release. Create a sprint for a releaseCreate sprints for a release. Sprints can only be created for an open release.
