Create your first Sprint

  • Updated

Once you've enabled the Sprints ClickApp, you can start creating Sprint Folders and Sprints!

Sprints are Lists with additional features included to help you manage your Sprint and get work done. All Sprints must live within a Sprint Folder.

Tip: Sprints that run simultaneously must be created in separate Sprint Folders. We highly suggest you create separate Sprint Folders for teams that need their own reporting metrics or Dashboards.
