“Trello” is an awesome tool for managing tasks. But unlike “Jira” there is no sprint or time tracking functionality as default. But there are several ways you can use sprint as well as time logging in Trello. In this post I am going to talk about only one way in which I have done it.
Sprint: To use sprint, I have created another list named “Sprints”. Here you can create tickets with the name/number of your sprints (for this example it is “Sprint 1” and deadline is March 3). In this ticket you can write description of the sprint, give a due date or any other information related to this sprint. Then in “To-Do” list, each ticket you create, use prefix of your sprint in the title, for example “Sprint 1: Server set up”. Here currently active sprint is “Sprint 2”. You can also see a list of backlog.
For better visualization you can use different images or labels with the ticket of different sprints.
This is the way, I have made “Trello” work for sprints. You can find other tricks. Let me know in the comments.
Time tracking: There are different plugin for time tracking which are integrated with Trello. As I am not going to promote any other third party software, I can just suggest to look into different plugins in the third party application section of Trello.
