Creating and Managing Agile Iterations

The highlighted information on this page refers to functionality not yet generally available. It is available only in the Preview Sandbox environment.

Iterations use story boards and burndown charts to visually represent how stories (tasks that are assigned to an agile team) are progressing during a fixed time-frame. 

Multiple iterations can exist for an agile team, and the time-frame of iterations can overlap. For information about how to manage an agile team, see "Creating and Managing Agile Teams."

Iterations can contain custom data, be included in views, and can be reported on.

Understanding Agile Iterations

Agile iterations consist of three areas: completion status, burndown, and the story board.

For information about the burndown chart and completion status, see "Using the Agile Burndown Chart."

For more information about the story board, see "Using the Agile Story Board."

Creating and Accessing Iterations
