YouTrack Standalone 2017.2 Help

Agile Boards

Agile project management in YouTrack is designed to help teams that use a Scrum methodology to plan, visualize, and manage their work during a series of consecutive sprints. It also helps teams that follow a Kanban process to manage and measure their work flow on the board.

The basic workflow to use the Agile Board:

  1. Create a new board.
  2. Configure parameters of the new board.

  3. Fill and prioritize the Backlog.

  4. Create and plan the sprints.

  5. Monitor the progress.

When all configuring is done, you might want to take a look at the Get Started with Agile Board.

Read the Scrum Boards and Kanban Boards tutorials to get step-by-step guidelines for using the YouTrack board to follow these agile methodologies.

If you own YouTrack 6.5 or earlier version, and you use the agile board functionality, then we urge you to take a look at the What's New for Agile Boards in 7.0 page to learn what differences the re-designed board in YouTrack 7.0 brings.
