How Jira suggests sprint names
Read on to learn the criteria JIRA uses when suggesting sprint names.
JIRA uses two different methods when suggesting sprint names:
- If no sprint exists on a given board, the suggested sprint name will be based on the name of the board.
Example: For a board named Test, the suggested sprint name will be Test Sprint 1.
- If a sprint is already present on a board, the suggested sprint name will be based on the name of the most recent existing sprint.
Example: For a board named Test with an existing sprint named Sprint 1.1, the suggested name will be Sprint 1.2.
Please note that this applies when any sprint appears on the board, even if it's a sprint from another board. Such sprints will be visible when the boards share issues, and any such shared issue is part of a sprint on another board.
