Make your team more agile with our online sprint planning tool
Prioritize your work for effortless sprint planning
Visual planning is key to running an organized, efficient sprint. Our online sprint planning tool makes it easy to organize your backlog, measure user stories, and assign user stories for the week. Whether your team is meeting in the same room or working remotely, everyone can access your Lucidspark board to stay updated on weekly progress. With all of your information in one central location, you can set your entire team up for success with clearly defined goals, expectations, and updates.
Get started with templates and an infinite workspace
Check out Lucidspark’s template library to make sprint planning easier. A customized template provides structure for anyone on your team to log on, add ideas, and update statuses in seconds. Use a template to organize your SWOT analysis or build a Fibonacci scale to easily measure story points. Create a Scrum board or PI planning board to mark who on your team is doing what, and then analyze your sprint once it’s complete with a retrospective.
Boost in-person and remote collaboration
Our sprint planning software was built to make collaboration easier, no matter where you’re working from. Communicate in real time with your entire team using comments, @mentions, chat, and emoji reactions to sum up feedback during your sprint review. Every edit is instantly visible, so your team can quickly communicate dependencies and identify the resources needed for each week’s sprint. Use color-coded collaborator updates, vote on outcomes, provide sprint feedback and follow individual collaborators to make sure your team is always aligned and moving.
Efficiently organize team sprints and tasks
Our sprint planning online tool takes organization to a whole new level. Easily manage team boards and manage statuses to keep your team members up to date on needs and goals, beginning with custom templates that create a consistent experience for your team. Sort and gather information instantly with assisted grouping, plus you can use containers to create progress lanes and visualize task progress. Organize your resources even further with tags tailored to your team’s needs.
Integrate your work across your team’s favorite platforms
Work your Scrum sprint planning into every aspect of your workflow with powerful Lucidspark integrations. Export your board to Google Drive, where all of your work will remain synced for your whole team to view. Insert your work into Slack, Microsoft Teams, or even Zoom to build brainstorms and Sprint planning meetings around your visuals. You can even import Jira issues directly to Lucidspark to include in your Kanban or Scrum boards, and then export any changes or new issues back to Jira.
How to get started with a sprint planning template
Set up your board for sprint planning
Get started with a Kanban board or Scrum board template in Lucidspark, or open a blank board. On the sprint planning board, many teams divide work by user story and/or include sections such as backlog, in progress, to test, and done.
Add sticky notes or Jira cards for the work to be completed
Add sticky notes to account for tasks or projects that need to be completed (or if you are using the Lucidspark Jira integration, you can import your Jira issues as cards to add to the board). New work that’s unassigned typically goes into a backlog section.
Review your backlog
Determine which team members get assigned each task. This is a chance for your team to ask questions, discuss dependencies, and identify the resources you need.
Take into account how much time each user story will take to determine how much work your team can get done during each week.
Double-check to make sure team members are aligned
The Scrum master should make sure everyone understands the sprint plan and overall workload. Go over goals for the week to make sure everyone is on board.

A demo of a sample Lucidspark brainstorming board is shown, with lots of active participation from the four participants across the entire board. Next, a rapid series of closeups demonstrating some Lucidspark features: Writing on a sticky note, drawing a circle around an idea, starting a 30-second timer, crossing an item off an agenda, adding emoji reactions to a sticky note, and sharing a board with collaborators in the share settings. The video then continues to demo features in line with the narrator’s audio for the remainder of the video. The video ends with the Lucidspark logo and tagline “Where ideas ignite.”
