A simpler way to organize and plan work in sprints. Make your working life easier by taking the pain out of planning.
Imagine your next planning meeting. Every team member is fully engaged in discussing the upcoming two weeks. The session is well structured, quick and painless. At the end everyone is excited to get started on the most valuable things you just agreed on. Everyone is able to get going right away because you have a clear shared understanding of what you want to achieve as a team.

How is Backlog different to ...?
Backlog is tailored to agile teams and their workflows. It makes an agile way of planning the one that feels natural without getting in the way. It’s like there is an Agile Coach built in.
Backlog is focused on being a product backlog and offers features like guided planning sessions and forecasts.
Backlog looks and feels more modern and slick and is a pleasure to work with.

We are not a task board. Trello is a really good option for this, which is why we offer an easy export of sprints from Backlog to your Trello board (coming soon).
