Add scrum points to your tasks and sprint towards your agile goals! 

In ClickUp, scrum points are created with a custom field. This allows you to customize your worklow and points system - just add any point value with a number field or give them a dropdown to provide select options such as the the Fibonacci sequence.

But it's not just a custom field - because ClickUp does some magic under the hood. Custom fields with numbers are automatically recognized as scrum points. With this, you can do some cool things like capacity planning and managing sprints in Box view. 

With ClickUp's reporting, Box View, Portfolios, and calculation features, you'll even be able to track the completion of points and determine your Workplace's velocity. 

So basically, all you have to do is add a number field to ClickUp for your sprints, and you'll be able to:

  1. Track Workload (Box view) 
  2. Track progress and velocity (Box view)
  3. Plan capacity (Box view or any views using a calculated custom field)
  4. Create custom views to see your sprints (just filter for the custom field when creating a view) 

How to Enable

Set up point values with a dropdown Custom Field!

  1. Create a new dropdown custom field
  2. Title the field something like "Points" 
  3. Set number values to the fields based on your preferred points format
    - We'll be using these later for calculations (just make sure to use 
  4. Add colors if you'd like these to stand out more
  5. Click Add field

Reporting on Scrum Points

Use custom fields to find workload, velocity, and more for your scrum points fields! You can do this in 4 places:

In Box View

Turn show scrum points on to display numeric custom fields in Box View and measure your Workplace's progress:

You can even visualize your Workplace's workload based on scrum points on the left side of your Box View (Business Plan only):

In List View

Easily set scrum points for all of your tasks in List View and organize them to your liking!

Column calculations let you sum, average, or range each group like so: 

In Portfolios

Add a column for "Calculations" and map it to your Scrum Point custom field. ClickUp will automatically calculate the entire List's value for you here:

This gives an excellent high level view of the weight of each sprint to more efficiently balance workloads. 

In Reporting

Filter down to the tasks you want to see in your reports, and base your calculations on scrum points! Flip quickly between people and task tabs to see total and personal scrum point values.
