Hi @Dennis S_

I don't think that you can change the "type" of the project, but you can add a Kanban board to the project and use that. The board filter for the board would then be exactly the same as that for the project.

Hope this helps

Thank you!

You can simply turn off the Sprint feature in "Project Settings -> Features". However, you can do it only in case your project is "Team managed".
