Change board from SCRUM to KANBAN

Hi Experts,


I would like to change my current next-gen projectboard from SCRUM to KANBAN, because we don't like working in sprints and the overview from KANBAN suits us better. Is there an opportunity to do this within the free plan without having to make a new project? 


Please let me know!

Hi @Philip Kroep,

Navigate to project settings > features and disable sprints. You will automatically end up with a kanban board. You can even decide if you want to keep it with our without backlog by enabling/disabling the backlog option.

Hope this helps! 

Thank you! This 100% solved my problem. Do you perhaps also know why my main admin account is not receiving e-mails within customer's projects (I made) if they for example make a to do/issue for me? I'll have to find new things posted out via the dashboard (activity log) now.. 

Kind Regards,

You're welcome, @Philip Kroep.

That is a totally different question, obviously. So in the future it might be a good idea to create a new question in Community.

This support article explains how notifications are set up in next gen projects. As a starting point, have a look if your admin account is assigned to the appropriate roles in order to be notified.

I am under Project Settings -> Features
I don't see anything about enabling or disabling sprints

I see topics like Planning, Development, operations and non have sprint on it

I am under Project Settings -> Features. I don't have the option disabling Sprints.

@Walter Buggenhout _ACA IT_ , Could you help me?

for anyone landing on this, ended up just creating a new board with kanban settings and importing the stories over to it.
