Which Project version has the Agile button on the project ribbon? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We're using MS Project Online and I've got the Project Professional Window's client installed on my PC.

    I've currently got version MS Project 2016 MSO (16.0.10730.20088) 32-Bit installed.

    I'd like to use the Agile functionality within Project via the button on the project ribbon but the version I have doesn't have it, instead it has "Manage Sprints". Can someone tell me what version I need to download to use it and how do I download that, I've spent ages searching for information but nothing has really helped.

    I've also tried updating Project via the O365 update but this hasn't helped.

    Thanks.

    Gary

  • Hi JCC Dev,

    The Agile button is no longer there, instead everything has been renamed Kanban.  Please have a look at this article I wrote recently on the MPUG site - https://www.mpug.com/articles/using-kanban-boards-microsoft-project/ (I'll also post this on my website shortly).

  • If "Manage Sprints" is showing up on menu then you have the right version.  Click on the Agile button.

  • I do have the Manage Sprints button but no Agile button.... I also look at customizing the Project ribbon but couldn't find any mention of an Agile button. I also don't have the Scrum tab.

    So what version of MS Project do you have?

  • Thanks, I will look at your article.

    There seems to be quite a disparity on what MS Project does and what the docs/videos say.

  • That's because MS release product and don't get around to updating their documentation until sometime later, if at all. My current version is 1808 - Build 10730.20102
