In this viewbox, you get an overview of the story, epic, sprint and release planning.
Releases and Sprints
Releases are planning containers. Sprints can be created within releases. In the Product Backlog, you can plan stories and epics by dragging these to a release. Only stories can be planned to sprints. A preferred way of working is to first plan epics to releases. When you start the sprint planning, the stories (children) of the epcis are planned in sprints.
If a story or epic is planned to a release only, the Planning Date is set to the release milestone date. If the story is further planned to a sprint, the Planning Date is set to the sprint end date.
