Parallel sprints in next-gen projects not working

I've turned on parallel sprint but I still can't start more than one sprint in a next-gen project. Is this a known problem, should I expect a solution any time soon?

Parallel sprints are not available in next-gen projects only in classic Jira Software boards.

So...why give us the option...and also why take away options... seems Next-Gen is more like Old-Gen

Right - why let us even create it.

Hi @Nikola Cosic,

As far as I understand, this is currently only possible for classic Jira projects and not the next-gen ones. The docs about the classic projects tell you about parallel sprints.

But the next-gen docs about sprints don't mention this.

I also did not find a way to configure these.


They don't mention but the setting is in place to turn that feature on, although it doesn't work.


@Peter Nguyen, the feature flag you're talking about switches the behaviour for classic projects (not next-gen ones). It is explained in the docs I linked above.

But yes, the UI could express in a better way that this is only for classic projects.

Same issue here.

Because of that missing function Next gen project are not usable for us :'(

Same here and it is a shame. When will this parallel sprint feature is expected in Next Gen projects?

I'm also really curious if you have a timeline on this one, as this is a blocking issue unfortunately

I don't get why they keep taking away options in Next-Gen instead of keeping and expanding...

We need this feature as well.  Was dismayed to find out this was only available in Classic Projects.

It's a big surprise that one cannot have multiple sprints in next gen projects. Whats the point in having it then?

Why do they call it a 'Next Gen' project if it doesn't have 'Next Gen' features?

Yes its classic Atlassian - lots of of 8 year old feature requests and bugs, and then the new version misses out one of the helpful features where you don't want separate projects but do want to track separate velocities/constraints.

Do we have any update on parallel sprints in Next-Gen?

@Falik_Sher - it seems that this issue is still open:

I suggest to leave your comment and vote there - that's the place where Atlassian's dev team acts on.
