In a previous post, we learned how to manage the Product Backlog. In this tutorial we will learn how to manage the Sprint Backlog.
Once you have determined the user stories you would like to include in the sprint, click their Start link in the Product Backlog and they will change their status into In Progress.
All of these In Progress user stories will show up in the current Sprint Backlog.
You can find out which sprint is currently active by going to your sprints at http://eijel.com/sprints.
You can now view all active user stories in the Sprint Backlog at http://eijel.com/sprint_backlog.
To add tasks to a user story, click on Add Task. A form will show up where you can enter the title of the Task and its estimate in hours.
Once you have completed adding tasks to all your user stories, your Sprint Backlog will look like this:
You can easily see the total number of hours your team will need to complete the sprint. The total hours for done and in-progress tasks are also shown.
Once your team has started working on the tasks, the Sprint Backlog will be similar to this:
When your team has completed all the tasks for the user stories, the stories will show up as Done in the Product Backlog.
You can now end your Sprint by clicking End at the Sprints.
After clicking End, the Sprint will be marked as Done.
You will still be able to view previous Sprints by clicking View. This way you can know what tasks were included and who worked on the tasks on previous sprints.
