Use Sprint Points

Sprint points are used in Agile methodology to estimate the amount of effort it will take to complete an item in your backlog. Sprint points are also called story points.

Use our Sprint Points ClickApp to add points to any task. You can also track points from subtasks and assign separate points to each assignee!

Use Sprint Points with the Sprints ClickApp or for resource management in Timeline view. This lets you track individual capacity for quick task delegation.

What you'll need

  • Sprint Points are available on all plans.

  • Free Forever and Unlimited Plans have a limit of 100 uses of Sprint Points.
  • Everyone, including guests, can use Sprint Points.
