GitScrum Sprints is an essential productivity feature in our tool. Our version of this Scrum classical will change the way your team deals with challenges, deadlines, commitment, and autonomy. Sprints are time sessions of tasks you can associate with your project’s goals.
Primarily, you usually set them in weeks. However, you decide their duration as a project manager, according to your project’s perspectives and production loops.
Then, you can use them for:
- Establishing a team’s clear goals to achieve during a determined period of time;
- Increasing teams’ productivity, since they work results-oriented, and feel challenged to gradually achieve more;
- Facilitating leadership, as long as the team understands the importance to commit and conquers the freedom to self-organize and manage their own tasks;
- Helping you identify your team’s strengths, difficulties, and bottlenecks, so you can search for solutions.
Starting a Sprint

- After, click on “Create new Sprint”.
- Choose the Project, fill in the Sprint name (it can be a incremental number), select the date range for the Sprint in the Timebox (start date – end date), mention Sprint goals (optional).
- Click on “Create new Sprint” to create.
The Tasks will be added to the Sprint later.

Delete a Sprint
You can delete a Sprint if you want, for any purpose. If you do so, only the Sprints data (name, goals, dates) will be gone, but the Tasks you might have included in the Sprints will be preserved – they will not be deleted!
- Go to Sprints on the Sidebar.
- Select the name of the Sprint you want to delete.
- Click the “Delete” button.
