These are questions with answers for the Sprints ClickApp!

Q: Who can make updates to how the Sprints ClickApp is configured?

A: Only admins are able turn on the ClickApp and configure the default settings. Once it's turned on, members can configure the Folder level Sprint settings and create new Sprints. Guests are neither able to edit the Sprint settings nor create new Sprints.

Q: I use epics to organize my projects. Is there a concept of an epic on ClickUp?

A: While there isn't something called an epic on ClickUp, we have features that allow you get the same effect. Here are three approaches:

  • (RECOMMENDED) Linking Tasks & Tasks in Multiple Lists: Use our task linking feature to relate tasks that are part of the same project. Create one task that represents the epic and then relate all the other tasks that comprise the feature to the epic task. When it comes time to add your tasks to a Sprint, leave your Epic on the roadmap.
  • Tasks in Multiple Lists: When you create tasks in your Sprint, add them to a second List with the name of the project or initiative. In this scenario, that second List becomes your epic.
  • Task Container: Create a task to represent the epic and create tasks from within the description of the epic. You can also manually place links to the related tasks in the description of the epic.

Q: What's the best way to use linked tasks with the Sprints ClickApp?

A: Create a List to represent your project or feature. Create a task to represent an epic or project in that List. We find it helpful to name it something like Awesome Feature [EPIC].

With the Task in Multiple List ClickApp turned on, add the task Awesome Feature [EPIC] to a secondary List, like your roadmap. In the same project List, create tasks for that project or feature. Use the Link tasks feature to relate these tasks to the Awesome Feature [EPIC].

In Sprint planning, move the tasks that are related to the epic into an upcoming Sprint or use Tasks in Multiple Lists to add them to the Sprint. For bugs, just add them into the Sprint as a secondary List.

Q: What's the best way to use the Sprints ClickApp in conjunction with Tasks in Multiple Lists?

A: To ensure you're able to get the most out of the Sprints ClickApp, we recommend using a Project List or a Bugs List as the Home List for your tasks. Use the Tasks in Multiple Lists feature to add your Sprint. You're still able to add a task directly to a Sprint as well if you want it to be the Home List.

Q: When the platform moves the unfinished tasks to the next sprint in bulk, is it using the Tasks In Multiple Lists feature?

A: Whether you're using the button to manually move unfinished tasks to the next Sprint or you're using the automation, the way it treats tasks is the same. If the Sprint is a secondary List for your task, it will remove it from the current Sprint and add it to the next Sprint as a secondary List. If the Sprint is the Home List for the task, it will move the Sprint to the next Sprint, so the next Sprint will become the new Home List.

Q: After creating a Sprint, can I move it from one Sprint Folder to Another?

A: Moving a Sprint from one Folder to another Folder is as simple as dragging and dropping. You'll simply be prompted to map your Sprint dates.
