How to use Workast to run sprints

Sprints are a common way for product and engineering teams to work, as they help keep production flowing in a timely manner.  Using Workast for your sprints can help them keep moving instead of slowing to a crawl.

Organizing your sprint

  • First, create a space for your sprint.  You can learn how to create a space here.  
  • Make sure that you invite your team members.  If you missed adding some of them when you created the space, you can learn how to add more here.
  • Create lists, or columns, for your sprint.  Managing tasks in lists helps to organize and label them effectively.

Here's an example of what your sprint space might look like after you've created your lists:

Creating and using tasks in your sprint space

  • Once your space is organized, you can start creating tasks.  (Don't worry, you can always add a list or edit lists later on.)
  • For more involved tasks, you can use subtasks to help break down one task into several steps.
  • Labeling your tasks using tags gives your team easy visual information.  We use tags like "High Priority," "Bug Report," etc.
  • You can easily move tasks from once list to another by dragging and dropping them.
  • Don't forget to add some integrations like Github or Bitbucket to help manage pull requests.  If you want to track the time spent on tasks, you can user our time tracker app.
