This is our first year so it's a basic question. We've been naming our sprints Sprint 1 2018, Sprint 2 2018, etc with the corresponding start/end dates. For those of you that also do it this way, do you start over at 1 or continue increasing the count by one for each sprint (someday getting to large numbers)?
We use the naming convention '2018 Sprint 45' for weekly sprints. In a couple of months time we will have sprint '2018 Sprint 52' followed by '2019 Sprint 1'.
Putting the year first means the auto-complete lists are in time order otherwise in 2025 you will see:
I have something else important to add I learnt the hard way this year. For the first 9 weeks of the year use 01, 02, etc with the leading zero. The fixVersion dropdown sorts alphanumerically and will not play nicely for the time both single and double digit weeks are open.
When creating a new Sprint using Greenhopper (6.0.3) the names automatically increment, for example if the last existing sprint is called "Sprint 6", the system will already create "Sprint 7". This works for any string or string/number combination - and the last number is always the only one incremented.
I want to create a naming convention where two numbers are incremented, for example if the previous sprint is called "Sprint 43-44" I want to increment both numbers so the next sprint created will automatically be named "Sprint 45-46". The requirement is to increment more than one number, and to increment by more than 1.
Does anyone have any experience with this update to the naming convention? I have gone through the JIRA answers, and other Q/A sources like stackoverflow but have found nothing so far.
Many thanks in advance
