YouTrack Standalone 2017.3 Help

Agile Boards

Agile boards in YouTrack are designed to help teams follow a wide range of agile project management processes.

  • Teams that use a Scrum methodology can plan, visualize, and manage their work during a series of consecutive sprints.
  • Teams that follow a Kanban process can monitor and measure their flow of work on the board.
  • Teams that take a hybrid approach can mix and match settings to support their custom process.

That said, not all agile boards are agile. You can create and configure a board that simply gives you an alternative view of your issues. The visual presentation on an agile board helps you manage issues more efficiently, no matter what process you use.

Here's an overview of the key topics in this section.
