How do I create a sprint with tasks from multiple projects/boards?

I work for a company that creates apps.  Each of the apps has a separate board.  We have a small team and  need to work on a few bugs from one app, while creating a feature for another.  How can I add tasks from multiple projects/boards to a single sprint?

Define a new scrum board that includes the issues you want in the sprint and create the sprint from that board.

It's going to get "interesting" having issues in different boards, but there is no other logical way to do it!

To follow up on the response from @Nic Brough [Adaptavist] the way to do this is to follow these steps.

  1. Create a filter that selects all the required stories from the different projects and save this as a shared filter.
  2. Create a scrum board based upon this new filter.

If you have scrum boards for any projects you should consider adjusting the filter to remove any stories that are in the cross-project scrum.


Hi, I have some problems when I want to see the burndown chart (using remaining time estimate and hours instead stories)


For example, if I planned 100 hours in my sprint, when someone report hours (for example 10 hours), the chart automatically refresh the remaining time as the new main time and I can't see a decrement. This only happen with this sprint (a sprint with issues of several projects).


Any clue why?
