Creating a sprint

I need to create  sprints which I understand I do from the backlog, however I don't have the Create sprint option. Can anyone advise why that would be?

Hi @sarahrogerson , 

The Jira Align Help Center article 10X: Create a Sprint describes how to create sprints in Jira Align.

I'd also suggest you to review these related articles, for additional context: 10X: Sprints and Sprint Planning 

Hopefully you'll find them useful.

And we recommend that if you are integrated with Jira, you should create the team sprints there and then with the integration align those to the sync sprints in Jira Align.

Check out this page that has several articles on the Jira integration.

Your role must have “Manage sprint” functions turned on 


Admin-roles- team - sprint Add must be enabled 

admin-roles-Additional options “admin manage sprints” must be enabled 


hope this helps!
