To start a sprint in a company-managed project:
From your project’s sidebar, select Backlog.
Find the sprint that you want to start and select Start sprint.
Update the Sprint name.
Select the Start date and End date for the sprint.
To prevent inaccurate reporting, the planned time and date are replaced by a suggested time and date that match the moment you select Start sprint. This can be changed to suit your team. Learn more about reports in company-managed projects
Add a Sprint goal if desired.
This sprint goal is also displayed on the Sprint Report and Burndown Chart.
After this, you’ll be taken to the Active sprints page that shows issues in your newly started sprint.
You can view your active sprint in the Backlog, and even add and remove issues from it. Be aware that adding and removing an issue from the active sprint is considered to be a scope change and will be reflected in some reports like the Burndown Chart.
When your sprint ends, you’ll be given the option to move any incomplete issues to a new sprint, or your Backlog.
If you want to have more than one active sprint at a time, you’ll need to enable parallel sprints. Learn more about what parallel sprints are, and how to use them
