Create Sprints with a custom duration

Custom Sprint Duration is currently in Beta and only available if you opt in on the ClickApps page.

The Custom Sprint Durations feature allows you to adjust individual Sprints without changing the default time-period settings for your Sprint Folder or Workspace.

What you'll need

  • Sprints and Custom Sprints are available on every ClickUp plan.
  • Sprint Point usage limits depend on your plan:
    • 100 uses of Sprint Points are available on the Free Forever and Unlimited Plan.
    • Unlimited Sprint Points are available on the Business Plan and above.
  • A Workspace owner or admin must enable the Sprints ClickApp.
  • Guests can work on Sprint tasks that they have access to, but cannot create new Sprints.
  • Once you enable Custom Sprint Duration, you will no longer be able to create multiple Sprints at the same time.

Custom Sprint Duration

Once you opt in to the Custom Sprint Duration ClickApp, you can't opt out.

Custom Sprint Durations cannot be used with legacy Sprint Dashboard cards. If you need to use Custom Sprint Durations with Sprint reporting cards, switch to our new Sprint Velocity, Burnup, and Burndown cards.

Customize Sprint dates to work around holidays, team events, planning days, short Sprints to burn down bug fixes, and longer Sprints to launch large features.
