Sprints management

Hello,

Looking at your documentation "Manage Epics on Agile Boards" (https://www.jetbrains.com/help/youtrack/standalone/Manage-Epics-on-Agile-Board.html) I would like to reproduce this setup however I encountered few issues.

I think I have understand the global setup :

1) one board deals with weekly sprints : User Stories as swimlanes and task/bug as cards
One board that use Quarterly Sprints and deals with Epics as swimlanes and User Stories as Cards




1) issue 1 : On my side, I have added quarterly sprints but these are visible on the executive board. I don't know how to only have them visibles on the Roadmap Board.
2) issue 2 : if I want to see my User Stories onto the Roadmap Board I need to assigned a Quarterly Sprint (Q2 2018 for example) to that user story which is complex as I already need to assigned weekly sprint on it. It is a twice sprint assignation

Thank you for yr help !

Best regards from france.

I just find an explanation !!

There is a big difference between creating a Sprint from that menu (1°)....

and creating a Sprint by adding a new Value into the Sprint field (2°)

 

I always was using the (2°) because any new Sprint value was perfectly reported into sprint board field (3°) below :

 

However there is a BIG difference into Youtrack that I was not knowing and that is probably not explained (?).

Adding a Sprint value into the custom field does a dispatching of that sprint into any Board field (3°) so for me it was perfect to preparing all the sprints in advance.

At the opposite, adding a Sprint from a Board (1°) doesn't dispatch that sprint for the other boards. The sprint is only associated to the original board of creation.

All is fine for me now.

Hello,

This difference is based on the board behavior you selected. There are several options: for example, you can add your issues to the board manually or you can link the board's sprints to a custom field (e.g. Sprints). If the former, you can create new sprints only as shown on your first screenshot (1°). If the latter, the sprints set is synchronized with the Sprints values. That means, if you add a new value on the custom fields page (2°), it will automatically appear in the sprints dropdown on your third screenshot (3°) and will be available in all boards which have their sprints synchronized with the same field. 

Please refer to https://www.jetbrains.com/help/youtrack/standalone/Sprint-Options.html to read more about board behavior options. 

lease let me know if you have any questions.
