How to manage variable sprint length in Portfolio?

I would like to make a plan in Portfolio using custom sprint length for each sprint(setting start and end date for each of them).  Is it possible?  Our team deals with 4 weeks sprints most of the time but sometime we have 5 weeks sprints.  Portfolio 2.0 seems to use the team "iteration length" to generate the timeline and I can't edit the sprints dates.

Hi Olivier,

That's a good question. This is currently not possible out of the box within Portfolio. However, if you have any dates set on active sprints on your board Portfolio will take those dates into account.

We're looking to add more sprint management features in the future, so watch this space. 


My company also plans using Portfolio plan created with Portofolio 1.x and would like to migrate to Portfolio 2.0.

However, the custom sprint functionality is not available yet in 2.0.

Would you have a link to the feature/user story for that enhancement?
