How to know what stories are from previous sprint?

Is there any way to know what stories are from a previous sprint? I mean, we have sprint 1 completed, with 5 stories we coudn't complete. And after planning we started the second sprint, but I would like to know which strories from the new sprint were in the previous one. Just to see how many stories we are re-doing.

Hi Emiliano

We use the flagging feature on the agile board. I.e. all issues in the sprint about to be closed will get flagged (and hence light up in orange).

In any case they will all show up at the very top of the backlog (or next future sprint if one is open)

But we like the flagging because it makes them stand out very clearly during planning.



Great idea! I'll use this one. Thanks!


I cannot recall a direct way to track this however on your planning board before you start the sprint you can have two metrics, time spent and remaining estimate. So, if time spent is > 0 h then it means it is from the previous sprint.

Alternatively, you can use labels to tag issues which are spilled from one sprint to another.


Thanks Rahul, for your answer, I'll try to use your approach.
