The sprint goal is probably the most important thing to look at in a sprint. It is the main reason the team works together during the sprint length: A commonly agreed outcome of the iteration, how the planned work provides business value.

This gadget displays the sprint goal, a lighthouse guiding the team to focus on getting their goal.

Sprints in Jira Software have a field to describe the sprint goal, which only accepts plain text. If your team works with several sprint goals to make sure all stakeholders are in the same page, then, add a sprint goal per line, starting with a *, and the gadget will understand each line as a different sprint goal.

  • The project and the board where the sprint is. Only works with a single sprint, parallel sprints not supported yet.

  • Finally, indicate if you want to use the current settings for all the compatible gadgets in the dashboard. This option eases the pain of configuring one by one the rest of the gadgets with the same default configuration
