Sprint/Iteration Scheduling is the first step in the Sprint/Iteration planning process. During this step, the team selects the amount of work it can deliver from the prioritized backlog, and using historical velocity as a guide, determines how much to schedule in each sprint.

In VersionOne, this is done on the Sprint Scheduling (or Iteration Scheduling) page. Here, you can perform the following tasks:

To see a demonstration of these functions, click the Show Me video to the right.

Accessing Sprint/Iteration Scheduling

From the main menu, select Iteration Planning, and then click on the Sprint Scheduling (or Iteration Scheduling) tab.

Adding a Backlog Item to a Sprint

  1. Go to Sprint Planning (or Iteration Planning), and then click on the Sprint Scheduling (or Iteration Scheduling) tab.

  2. Scroll to the Backlog grid at the bottom of the page, select an item, and then drag into a sprint at the top of the page.

    • To schedule multiple items, select the checkbox next to each item, and then click Move to Sprint. When the Sprint Assignment window opens, select a sprint, and then click Move.

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 Another Sprint

  1. Go to Sprint Planning (or Iteration Planning), and then click on the Sprint Scheduling (or Iteration Scheduling) tab.

  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 from a Sprint

  1. Go to Sprint Planning (or Iteration Planning), and then click on the Sprint Scheduling (or Iteration Scheduling) tab.

  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.
