Overview

Sprint/Iteration Scheduling is the first step in the Sprint/Iteration planning process. It allows the team to select the backlog to be delivered within each sprint. The team first schedules the amount of work it feels it can deliver by selecting from the prioritized backlog, and using historical velocity as a guide, determines how much work to schedule.

Accessing Sprint/Iteration Scheduling

From the main menu, select Iteration Planning > Iteration Scheduling.

Working with Sprint/Iteration Scheduling

From the Iteration Scheduling page, you can:

Managing Backlog within Sprint Schedules

The primary purpose of this page is scheduling backlog into a sprint/iteration. The following sections describe how to add backlog to a sprint, reassign backlog to a different sprint, and remove backlog items from sprints, making them available for future sprints.

Adding a Backlog Item to a Schedule

Sprint scheduling is typically done at the lowest level of the project tree, but can be done at multiple levels within the hierarchy if needed.

  1. Go to Sprint Planning > Sprint Scheduling.

  2. Select an item in the unassigned Backlog grid at the bottom of the page and drag it into the appropriate sprint container at the top of the page. To schedule multiple items, select the checkbox next to each item and click Move to Sprint to open the Sprint Assignment window. Select the sprint to which you want to move the items and click Move.

  3. Note that you have complete control over manipulating your backlog from here. Using the Move to Sprint drop-down list, you can assign existing backlog items to other projects, sprints, teams, and backlog groups. You can also use the Asset Tray on the left to create new backlog items to schedule as needed (see Backlog for details on creating and managing workitems).

Expand any sprint container to view the list of backlog within it. After an item has been scheduled, it is removed from the Backlog grid at the bottom of the page. If the Sprint schedule does not already exist, you can create one as described in Defining Sprint Schedules for a Project.

Reassigning Backlog Items

To move a backlog item to another sprint:

  1. Go to Sprint Planning > Sprint Scheduling.

  2. Expand the sprint container to see the list of scheduled backlog items.

  3. Select a backlog item, and then drag it to a new sprint container. To reassign multiple items, select the checkbox next to each item, then open the Move to Sprint drop-down list and select Move to Sprint. The Sprint Assignment window opens for you to select the destination sprint. Click Move to reassign the selected backlog items.

Removing Backlog Items

To remove a backlog item from a sprint:

  1. Go to Sprint Planning > Sprint Scheduling.

  2. Expand the sprint container to see the list of scheduled backlog items.

  3. Click on the backlog item and drag it out of its container, then release it anywhere in the highlighted outer container. The system places the item in the Backlog grid, making it available for future selection.
