Backlog changes constantly, depending on Target Velocity, what’s agreed to during a Sprint Planning session, tasks added and deleted during the sprint, and work actually completed.  ScrumMaster calls these changes ‘Adjustments’.

Use the Backlog ScrumFunction to show the impact of anticipated changes and view the result of work completed. At any time, use ‘Filters’ to search for or analyze specific past or future Backlog data.

Backlog Filters

Use filters to view completed stories, backlog remaining, and change Target Velocity.

Here’s how it works.

1. The color-coded, numbered blocks across the top of the Backlog screen show the current number of sprints calculated at your current Target Velocity.  The block color changes to yellow when the sprint ends (closed).

2. The sprint number to the left of each listed story identifies when that story’s work begins.

Swipe from an edge to display the App bars.  ‘Reset’ and ‘Apply’ buttons set filter conditions.

Common tasks include:

3. Change ‘Target Velocity’.  The number of sprints and all associated sprint data automatically re-calculates.  Stories and their tasks dynamically re-group into their new sprint.

4. Change the Backlog slide to ‘Past Backlog’ to view completed sprints and stories, by type if desired.
