Backlogs (Scrum)

Working in agile project teams is becoming increasingly important.

OpenProject supports your work with the Scrum methodology by providing a variety of functionalities. You can record and prioritize user stories in the sprint and product backlog, use digital task boards or burndown-charts, print story cards, and much more. For more information, please refer to the OpenProject agile and scrum features page.

A backlog is defined as a plugin that allows to use the backlogs feature in OpenProject. In order to use backlogs in a project, the backlogs plugin has to be installed and the backlogs module has to be activated in the project settings of a project (the accessibility mode has to be deactivated).

Please note that this user guide does not represent an introduction into scrum methodology, but merely explains the scrum-related functionalities and user instructions in OpenProject.
