Creating A Sprint Field Description Release [Required] Select the release to which the sprint belongs. Story points Displays the total points for all stories in the sprint. Story points are arbitrary measurements of the effort (not necessarily the time) required to complete a story, based on the estimates of scrum team members. The default number in this field is zero - change the number to ensure that Completed points and Team points are calculated correctly. Completed points Displays the total points for all non-canceled stories associated with the sprint. This is a read-only field that updates automatically as team members complete stories. When the sprint is complete, the completed points should equal the Story points value. Team points Displays the total points for all team members in the sprint. This number is the measurement of the team's capacity for this sprint. State Select the current state of the sprint. The default is Draft. Planned start date Select the date when sprint work is scheduled to begin. Planned end date Select the date when sprint work is scheduled to end. Sprints typically last 2 to 4 weeks and cannot occur outside the time limits of the release to which they are associated. Team Select a team for this sprint. The members of this team appear in the Sprint team members related list when the form is submitted.
