Teams can easily customize their working style to follow Agile methodology , and keep it flexible for work that might not follow Agile processes as well. 


Translating Agile Scrum concepts easily 


One of the most popular Agile frameworks is Scrum. Here’s how common Scrum concepts translate here, including some helpful examples.


How to create epics


An epic is an overall effort towards a specific objective or a target, which can be broken down into smaller tasks. Here, it translates into projects and tasks for features and user stories, respectively. Things like big launches could be epics, as could a series of events or campaigns in service of a larger goal (like more marketing or sales).


Step-by-step guide to create an epic


Note: You can create an epic from any of the modules in Freshrelase, I'm using the tasks module to create one. 



Step 2 : Click on "+New" on the right side corner of the screen



Step 3: Click on epic to create a new one



Step 4: Add all the details of your epic in the window that pops up and click on save



How to manage backlogs

Features document the larger activities that will help you achieve your epics, and backlogs help you keep track of work that you haven’t yet prioritized. 


1. Create new epics


2. Add tasks, user stories or bugs to your backlog easily 


3. Drag and drop your tasks to prioritise them 




Create your backlog and add them to your sprint

An user story is one actionable piece of work to help you break up a feature into actionable components. This means adding tasks to your project. So for an epic about a redesign, you could have a website launch feature with stories like “draft web copy, ”design pilot run”


Once you create stories, consider using Advanced sprint planning to capture the actionable pieces of work that you’ll take on in a sprint.  Now you’ve built a basic Scrum framework.
