  2. You can now open the Backlog Board and add Tasks, or continue building out your plan by adding Scrum Boards for each of your sprints. To add new sprints, open the Scrum Boards tab and click New Sprint. Enter the name of the sprint and its start date. For subsequent sprints, the dates will be prepopulated based on the Scrum settings.

    You can now customize your Scrum Boards with Stages.
  3. During your sprint planning, you can move Tasks from your backlog to the relevant sprint.
    To move a Task, you can update its Board in any of the grid/board views, or simply drag and drop Tasks from the Workspace's backlog to the relevant Scrum Boards (sprints). In the Scrum Boards tab, toggle Show Tasks to view Tasks in the backlog board, and then drag them to sprints.
