Displaying the Current Sprint in YouTrack for Your Boss

João P. Bragança

Here where I work we use YouTrack for issue tracking. We have a small team, it’s easy to use and free.

We’re also trying to get the business side more involved with what we’re doing - to know that we’re not just talking to ourselves / the keyboard all day. Unfortunately the default search leaves much to be desired.

Really what I want to show is all current features without subtasks (too noisy) AND any ‘orphaned’ tasks, bugs etc. Took a bit of messing around but I found an (undocumented) query that worked - Fix versions: {Sprint Name} has: -{Subtask of}.

Nice! We can also tack on #Resolved for last week’s sprint to show what we actually completed.
