Start a sprint

Now that you're all set with a sprint and a sprint owner to manage your team, users to work, deadlines to keep, and estimation points to measure your efforts, it's time to start your sprint. You can start the sprint from the Sprint Dashboard or from Sprint Plan. Once you're there, just click Start in the upper-right corner.

When you start a sprint, you'll be redirected to the Sprint Board.

You will receive a sprint reminder as well as an update on your feeds timeline when the sprint is about to start or end and when it is overdue.

  4. Click Edit .
  5. Modify the details and click Update .
Updating sprint duration

Agile methodology helps users to plan and prioritize the deliverables even before the work is started. The team estimates the work items for the sprint and schedules the duration of the sprint during the sprint plan meeting. 
  • After the sprint is started, modifying the dates can lose the tracking process of your actual vs planned charts. 
  • Based on the total estimated points of the sprint, the burndown and burnup charts are plotted on a daily basis. Modifying the dates can hinder the team in tracking the progress of the sprint and its actual end date.
  • You will not be able to know your team's performance (velocity of your team) if you frequently update the duration of your sprint.

Delete sprint

  1. Navigate to Backlog .
  2. Select the sprint that you want to delete.
  3. Click next to the sprint name.
