Agility and Boards

Scrum board


Scrum boards are used to visualize all the work in a given sprint. Jira Software's scrum boards can be customized to fit your team's unique workflow. You can also easily add things like swimlanes to separate epics, assignees, projects, and more. At the end of the sprint, get a quick snapshot of all the issues that were completed and any unfinished issues will automatically move into the backlog to be addressed in the next sprint planning meeting.




Track and manage your sprints

A sprint is a fixed-length iteration of work, typically one or two weeks in length. Work should be fully scoped and prioritized during the sprint planning meeting, so the team can get started as soon as the sprint begins. These features keep track of all the work being tackled in each sprint, so your team can stay focused on the tasks at hand. 


Sprint permissions

Use sprint permissions to define what users can see or do in a given project. Sprint permissions allow you to better delegate permissions and responsibilities to team members, allowing the entire team to be more autonomous and agile.


Custom issue types

Develop custom issue types for bugs, stories, coffee runs, and everything in between. Configure a custom workflow and custom fields for each issue type, so your team can manage work according to its requirements.



Create and assemble your own custom workflow states and transitions for every issue type (bugs, stories, epics, coffee runs). Leverage the powerful Jira workflow engine to update issues automatically based on events in other systems, or define criteria that must be met before an issue can progress.


Release hub

Quickly see what's shipping in your next release, and what's left to do to get it out the door. Easily reconcile your source code and issues: automatic warnings are generated for issues with broken builds, missing code, or open pull requests.


Agile tools for kanban

Kanban methodology is based on the idea of continuous releases. Work is tracked using a kanban board that displays the statuses of work in columns and lanes. There are four important pillars to kanban to help teams ship products: continuous releases, WIP (work in progress) limits, the list of work, and columns or lanes. Here are some tools that come out-of-the-box in Jira Software's kanban template to help you run kanban with your team.
