After the project is created it should be configured.

ScrumDesk allows ScrumMaster to assign a name to the Project page. Except that ScrumMaster can describe the project in the Description edit line to provide general information about the project to other people in a company.

ScrumDesk provides a way to visually distinguish the project in the projects list by the logo.

More information about the project, contract, meeting notes, etc. can be attached in form of documents in the Attachments list. This can be a documentation source available to all team members even if they are distributed as files could be stored in the ScrumDesk database. Another option is to keep them located in a shared drive and save only the link to them.

When new sprint is created Default sprint length is used. Agile teams typically agree on the sprint length with the product owner. The typical length of the sprint is 10 working days.

The project can be marked as private/public. A private project is displayed in the project list only to team members assigned to the project. Public projects are available for anyone able to log in to ScrumDesk. This way you can provide visibility of current development to anyone interested.

Teams can be hierarchically organized in the structure. Every team member can be assigned to one team only. The team member can have a picture, name, and role. Except for standard scrum roles (scrum master, product owner, team member), ScrumDesk provides the possibility to include visitors into the team. The visitor is typically a stakeholder or manager. She is allowed to see all information but she is not able to change them.

Team member tile can be dragged to the team to assign it. Sub-teams can be reorganized by drag and drop as well.  Team members can be listed in the table after the Grid link is clicked.
