When you add the "Projects, Tasks, Sprints" template to your workspace, you'll see four new pages in your sidebar:
Tasks: Database of all your tasks, showing their related projects and sprints.
Projects: Database of projects, where you can easily view all of the tasks within a project.
Sprint board: Board that shows the tasks for the current sprint.
Sprints: Database of current, future and past sprints.
Your Sprint board and Sprints database
Sprints database will give you a higher view of your current and future sprints. You can select any sprint's page to view its tasks. You'll also notice a
Timeline view which gives you a more linear look at sprints.
Sprint board is where you'll likely go consistently to track your tasks. You'll notice three default views.
Current Sprint: Shows tasks in the current sprint.
Sprint planning: Shows tasks in the current sprint, next sprint and any tasks without an assigned sprint.
Backlog: Shows tasks with no sprint assigned.
