Enable parallel sprints

This page applies to company-managed projects only.

Learn more about the difference between company-managed and team-managed projects.

Use parallel sprints to run multiple active sprints at the same time. This can be useful when your team wants to split their work to focus on different goals while using the same backlog.

As an example, part of your team might run a sprint for development, while other team members focus on a separate sprint for design. Both sprints would contain issues from the same backlog, but each sprint can be started and completed independently.

To enable parallel sprints in company-managed projects:

  1. Log in as a user with the Administer Jira global permission.

  2. From the global navigation, select Settings () > Products.

  3. Under Jira Software configuration, select the toggle for Parallel sprints.
