How do I Stop a sprint that was Started in Error

Not paying attention, Sprint 3 was started when Sprint 2 should have been started. We will do Sprint 3, just not now(must be after sprint 2)

I don't want to delete the now started sprint, but need to Stop or pause it while Sprint 2 completes.

Hi John,

I don't think you can stop a sprint to be restarted later on. You can create a new sprint, and delete the one your started by mistake. The issues that were in Sprint 3 will move to the next sprint. Now you can re-create Sprint 3 and move the original issues back to it.

Hope it helps,


Not the answer I wanted, but the answer I expected.

I did just as you described and I'm back to where I wanted to be.

Thanks @Carlos Garcia Navarro
