Refine the backlog
Create epics and break down functionality down into user stories and tasks. Use the backlog management page to evaluate work that has been assigned from product management alongside engineering priorities in a single view. Rank work based on value to inform sprint planning decisions.
Accurate estimation is critical for capacity planning. Assess what it will take to develop new functionality in story points or time. Fan of planning poker? Play your cards and nail down the estimate right on your user stories. Tie those estimates back to the product roadmap — giving everyone a clear picture into the effort and time required.
Streamline sprint planning
Plan what needs to be delivered and when. Automatically calculate capacity based on each engineer's availability and velocity. As you move cards from your backlog into a sprint, team capacity updates in real time. Commit to the plan with certainty, knowing exactly what the team can take on.
Keep sprints running smoothly. Use a customizable workflow board to track the progress of everything assigned to a sprint. Switch to the burndown chart to see if you are trending above or below the ideal pace line and track changes in scope. The right visualizations help you spot issues early so you can achieve your sprint goals every time.
Retrospect on performance
Look back on each sprint to celebrate the wins, discuss issues, and identify ways to improve. Analyze your productivity using interactive burndown and velocity reports. Use the sprint retrospective template to structure your meeting discussion, encourage team engagement, and document next steps.
