The active sprint mode

The active sprint mode for a Scrum board acts as the white board where all your story cards are placed. There are some key components that make up the board, namely the columns and swimlanes.

  • Columns: The vertical columns are used to represent the state of a story card
  • Swimlanes: The horizontal rows that help you to better categorize your story cards on the board

In the following sections, we will take a deeper look into these two components and how you, as the board administrator, can customize them to get the most out of your board.
