Iteration's and Program Increment's lifecycle

There are three statuses for every iteration/ Program Increment:

  1. Forecast - it will be executed in the future so it is still under planning,
  2. In progress - it is now during execution,
  3. Closed - it has already finished.

All the following transitions between statuses are allowed - Edit mode needs to be enabled first:

  • Forecast → In progress and vice versa
  • In progress/Forecast → Closed and vice versa

When closing a Program Increment, a user is prompted to decide what to do with open objectives afterwards. 

All objectives previously marked as "Failed" will remain in a given status after reopening a Program Increment. These objectives will also be automatically cloned and added to the next iteration/Program Increment with status "Open".
