In product development, a sprint is a set period of time during which specific work has to be completed and made ready for review. The practice of Sprint management is one of the core processes of the Agile work process. Keeping this in mind, Yodiz brings advanced capabilities for Sprint Management.
Plan, manage and track Sprint activities with easy to use visual boards, Sprint Analytics view and a detailed resource manager.
You can choose the way in which you do Sprint management. You can either choose to have a Scrum board or a Kanban board, depending on your preferences. Scrum and Kanban are two different agile methodologies, and Yodiz’s users can choose which one they prefer to work with. Custom configurations can be made for both types of boards.
The Yodiz Sprint board is fully customizable and can be tailored to meet any team’s personal preferences. The Sprint board includes a board layout editor, which allows the user to choose the way in which the board operates. Users can select the type of items that will appear as columns on the board, thus effectively changing the flow of things.
Ability to sort board in ascending or descending order. Sort the board to show only User Stories, Issues or show all. You can create custom filter criteria to customize your searches. You also have the ability to save your customized Filters for use on a later date.
The Sprint board allows you to create and manage multiple sprints, allowing you to choose sprint duration and the team associated with the sprint.
Whenever you are creating a Sprint, you can choose to create a Sprint Goal and define the Definition of Done. These things keep your team on track for the duration of the sprint.
Yodiz gives you access to advanced Sprint analytics which are various statistical measures to gauge how effective your sprints are. These insights help you in improving future sprints. These include statistics such as Burndown and Burnup charts and Velocity graph.
A powerful Resource Management tool allows you to assign different team members to different sprints, and then allows you to log their work hours for the duration of the sprint. It also allows you to:
Once Sprints are completed they can either be closed, or the data from the Sprint can be moved to another Sprint along with all work items and their associations.
