Im getting a default sprint name thats obviously being generated from some wrong variable.  Where is this setting and how do we change it ?

You are right the sprints name are created automatically based on the board name or most recent sprint name used on the board. But, if not configurable.

You can change the sprint name by clicking on ... > Edit sprint. From next time when you create a new sprint, it'll use the new name & sequence format.

Hi @TJ Marbois

Sprint Names are auto-generated and the logic can be found in this KB article here.

In effect, the sprint name will be based on the board name unless it is specified. Then one of two things happens when adding a new sprint:

  1. The sprint ends in a number and the next sprint will count up one digit. So if the name is "Test Sprint 1", the next one will be "Test Sprint 2". Be advised this also happens with dates so if current sprint is "Sprint 20/01/2020" the next will be "Sprint 20/01/2021", counting up one digit to 2021.
  2. The sprint has a name ending in a text character and the next sprint will add a numeric digit - eg. "Test Sprint" and the next one will be "Test Sprint 2".

^ The sprint creation logic looks to the most distant sprint - so if you have one current sprint and two future ones, the second future one will govern the sprint naming.

To edit the sprint's name, go to your board and press the 3-dots icon next to a Sprint, then Edit Sprint.
