Creating a Sprint
A sprint — also known as an iteration — is a short (ideally two to four week) period in which the development team implements and delivers a discrete product increment, e.g. a working milestone version.
You may want to create multiple A sprint is visible on all boards that contain issues belonging to the sprint., allowing you to plan several iterations ahead.
To create a new sprint:
- Click the Agile link's down-arrow in the top navigation bar, then select your preferred board from the resulting dropdown menu.
- Click Backlog.
Click the Create Sprint button at the top of the backlog.
- You don't have the right permissions: You can only create a new sprint if you have the 'Administer Projects' permission in all projects included in this board's backlog.
- Ranking is not enabled: You can only create sprints, if you have enabled ranking for your board.
Note, having an active sprint will not prevent you from creating a sprint. You won't be able to start a sprint if you have one in progress though (unless you have enabled 'Parallel Sprints' in Labs).
Your new 'upcoming' sprint will be added to your board, below any other future sprints.
