Monitor the progress of a sprint
You've started a sprint with grand plans. How do you make sure that your team is on track to deliver what they've committed to?
Jira Softwareprovides a number of tools that you can use to monitor the progress of a sprint. If you run into problems or things are just not on track for the target date, Jira Softwarecan help visualize or highlight problems so your team can take actions to remedy them.
The Active sprints of a Scrum board just may be the central workspace for a sprint that's in progress. You and your team would usually check Active sprints at least once a day, while a sprint is running — perhaps your team has its daily stand-ups around a monitor displaying Active sprints.

Development panel for issues
If you have Jira Softwareconnected to your development tools, a 'Development' panel is shown on each issue that shows you information about the commits, branches, pull requests, builds, and more, that are related to the issue. This can help you see discrepancies at a glance — for example, issues that have related commits, but are still in the 'To Do' status.

Wallboards and gadgets
A wallboard can act as an "information radiator" for your team, letting them know how they are progressing during a sprint, alerting them when builds are broken, reminding them about upcoming team events, and more. You just need to add the desired gadgets to a dashboard, then display it as a wallboard (Tools > View as Wallboard on the dashboard).

The Burndown Chart shows the work that has been completed in a sprint and estimates how long it will take to complete the remaining work. This can help you determine the likelihood of your team completing a sprint on time — allowing you to visualize or highlight problems so your team can take actions to remedy them.
