Paralell Sprints - Can I enable this (in Comp.Based Project) for just ONE Project?

Dear hero's!

I've got a question related to what happens once you enable the Parallel Sprints option:


I am in a Company managed Project so great; I can enable the parallel option! :)

Now: Is there any way by which I (admin) can solely enable this function for a certain Project?



  • I have a Project "D&A", for the entire department of small Scrum teams,
  • They have one backlog. However, they work in different sub teams and thereby need to run Sprints in Jira at the same time / simultaneously
  • Need for all teams to have their own sprint goals (work on different topics/focus areas)

My question is:

Once I enable this option, does it enable the parallel sprints for ALL teams & projects? I just want to enable it for my team & project


Suggestions would be fully & much appreciated!

Enabling parallel sprints is a global configuration. As such once enabled it applies to all projects.

The following documentation might be useful to others that come across this post. use-parallel-sprints

Generally speaking I don't see many teams using this feature so I don't know that it would be a real concern. I think it's a matter of educating the team as to the value and limitations if used.

Many thanks to your quick response Jack. 
So: it doesn't radically change the way other teams suddenly see different options, columns etc? It sounds like they don't even notice this option opened up, correct?

No simply gives teams the option to start multiple sprints if the so choose.

Clear, many thanks Jack! Let the experiment begin.....
