A simple backlog tailored to agile teams.

A simpler way to organize and plan work in sprints. Make your working life easier by taking the pain out of planning.

Imagine your next planning meeting. Every team member is fully engaged in discussing the upcoming two weeks. The session is well structured, quick and painless. At the end everyone is excited to get started on the most valuable things you just agreed on. Everyone is able to get going right away because you have a clear shared understanding of what you want to achieve as a team.

step by step planning agenda - step 1: description

  • Let Backlog guide you through planning so you can focus on the content.
  • Stop guessing. Reason about if you can pull more work into the next sprint.

keep the overview with the backlog timeline

Make informed product and prioritisation decisions by keeping the overview.

  • Grasp at a glance what work can be completed in the near future.
  • Let Backlog forecast how much you can get done by when based on your team's performance in previous sprints.
  • Organize your backlog by grouping backlog items by labels.

Document shared understanding. Add a title, description, acceptance criteria, labels, an estimate and attachments to your backlog items.

How is Backlog different to ...?

most others

  • Backlog is tailored to agile teams and their workflows. It makes an agile way of planning the one that feels natural without getting in the way. It’s like there is an Agile Coach built in.
  • Backlog is focused on being a product backlog and offers features like guided planning sessions and forecasts.

JIRA

  • Backlog looks and feels more modern and slick and is a pleasure to work with.
  • Backlog has a simpler interface and workflow. It is stripped from all the cruft you don’t use. This means a low learning curve for you and your team.

Trello

  • Backlog has specific product backlog features like guided planning sessions and forecasts that make organizing and planning work easier.
  • We are not a task board. Trello is a really good option for this, which is why we offer an easy export of sprints from Backlog to your Trello board (coming soon).
