Enable Backlog in Company-Managed Scrum Software Project

I have created a new company-managed scrum software project, and in searching documentation it seems I have to enable the Backlog since it's not appearing. (Why would this not be the default for scrum project? But I digress...)

The only documentation I can find is for team-managed projects, which says go to Project Settings then select "Features". The Features option does not exist in my project, probably because it's company-managed, but I cannot find any instructions for enabling the dad gum backlog and sprints for my company-managed project.

Can anyone help? TIA

Go to your project board click on the… And select board settings then columns and share a screen shot

Company-managed projects are a little less tightly tied to the boards than team-managed, and backlogs are part of the board, not the project.

When you create a Company-managed project and select Scrum or Kanban, you'll get a default board of that type.  A scrum board is always made up of two parts - the backlog and the active-sprint board.  All you need to do is jump on to the board and the backlog should be the first thing you see.

Thanks for your reply!  I actually fixed my problem by creating a project and NOT selecting the "user another project's settings" this time. Now the Backlog appears in the left column where I expected it, where I can see and create multiple sprints just like in all our other projects.
