Can I create multiple sprints at a time


Can we create a new sprint in jira without closing the existing sprint

Hi @Nijo S Thanjan ,

The Parallel Sprints feature lets you enable multiple active, parallel sprints. For example, if you have two teams working from the same backlog, each team can now work on their own sprint.

Please note the following caveats when using Parallel Sprints:

  • The Velocity Chart will not show the velocity per team.
  • The current implementation assumes that the teams perform estimation identically, which is unlikely in practice.



Normally multiple teams can work on the same backlog?

Can we create multiple active sprint and is it a good practice?

Go to Application -- > JIRA Software Configuration -- > Enable Parallel Sprints


This setting will allow you to create multiple sprint at a time

Noel is right, Please note that the issue will hold more than one sprint in the sprint field if you moved not-completed issues to next sprint. which may have impact on your reporting if it is at your concern.
