Scrum Sprints is a tool for better work organization and increased effectiveness in your team. It will help you with work schedule so you can complete all tasks and reach your goal.

Scrum Sprints will be a great solution, if you have to do a project, which goal is to give your client eg. new feature, strategy or a product. Thanks to work division in Scrum Sprints you're able to plan tasks to do in defined interval (usually 1 week). This way you can see your team's progress and how many tasks you have left this week.

If you add a task to a Sprint, you can create a whole map of your team's work and monitor the process, thanks to percentage calculation of done tasks (compared to ones you planned to do).

Scrum Sprints will not only help you in reaching your goal, but will also diagnose how work is done in your company, how effectivness looks in your team, or if tasks planning is properly scheduled and if you estimate 'production capacity'. You will see exactly how the situation looks and motivate you to make some changes in organization, if needed.

In a Sprint view you can see all of tasks assigned to a Sprint, divided by users in pie chart, which shows the percentage of resolved tasks planned for a Sprint. If you have more users assigned to a sprint, you will see as many pie charts as you have users, one for each user.

Przy każdym userze wyświetla się też tabela z jego zadaniami, priorytetem zadań i ich statusem. Dzięki temu osoba nadzorująca Sprint widzi postępy prac u każdego z userów. Next to each user you have a table with his/her tasks with priorities and statuses. In this way, your team's manager can control every user's work progress.
