Answered Automate recurring iteration creation

Our iterations are exactly the same every week so creating them adds busy work that could easily be automated. Is there a way to create a recurring iteration? If not is this a feature that could be added?

    Hi Brian,

     

    We truly appreciate any and all feedback, and do our best to share every piece we get with the team.

     

    While iteration automation isn't on our immediate roadmap, it is something we plan to do in the future (along with the ability to move unfinished stories from one iteration to the next if the iteration in question ends). What I'll do is add your +1 and additional context to an internal Story we have tracking this. Since we'll have this conversation associated with that Story, as we prioritize work in the future we'll be able to reach back out to keep you in the loop. 

     

    Cheers,

    Echoing the sentiment. This feature would remove a big source of friction for us as we try to shorten our iteration cadences.

    +1 for this!

    As a Scrum Team we want to able to enable and configure automatic iteration generation so we can plan faster because we always see the future iterations without having to worry about it.

    Some abilities that would make it useful:

    • Set the start date of the first automatically generated iteration.
    • Set the default duration of each iteration in days, or as predefined sane defaults (1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, 4 weeks, 1 month).
    • Set the numer of future iterations to create ahead.
    • Define a naming convention for the iteration names using templated variables. Like "Iteration {number}", for a simple counter, "{year}-{week}" where week is the number of the week of the start date of the iteration, or "Iteration {start_date} to {end_date}" or "Iteration {start_day} {start_month} to {end_day} {end_month}".

    Iteration templates would help for this too. We currently use a TextExpander snippet to add boilerplate for each iteration.
