Your backlog is where you organise work with your team, ranking issues according to priority.
Can’t see a backlog? Your project's backlog may not be enabled. Admins can enable the project's backlog by going to the project > Settings > Features. (See also Enable agile features.)
Create an issue
Select + Create under the backlog heading OR select the ‘more’ icon (three vertical dots) at the top of the backlog.
Create a sprint
Select the ‘more’ icon (three vertical dots) at the top of the backlog. (See also Create a sprint.)
Drag-and-drop issues to rearrange
Hold the reorder icon (three horizontal lines) next to an issue to drag-and-drop it between sprints, or to rearrange it amongst other issues according to priority.
Swipe right or long-press an issue for quick-move options
Swipe right (from the left of your screen to the right) on an issue, or long-press the issue’s title, to reveal quick-move options, such as moving the issue directly to the top/bottom of the backlog or to a different sprint.
Search for issues
Select the filter icon (inverted triangle) at the top of the backlog to search or apply filters. (See also Search for issues.)
Simplify your view
Collapse lower-priority sprints (or the backlog’s list of issues) by tapping each sprint’s header (or the backlog’s header). This will reduce the noise in your backlog, and allow you to increase your focus.
You can reveal the option to collapse/expand all sprints at once by long-pressing a sprint’s header, or via the backlog’s ‘more’ icon (three vertical dots).
Expand each section by tapping each header again.
