More than one board

I am using Trello as board manager for my project. I have created one board for each Sprint. Is this correct? or I have to make only one "super" boad.

I'm using these lists (that I share with members): Not planned, Commited backlogs, Not started, In process, finished.

Another doubt. I have one user history but for this release (the PO wants the project in production), this UH must be modified and we have to suprime some points and fix others. In parallel, we have to continue with that UH, with the real requeriments. How can I represent this on the board? must I have to make one UH with the modifications and make another one with the real requeriments for next sprint?

Sorry for my bad english.

Thanks in advance.

My recommendation is to ask the team if the board setup you currently have is working for them and ask them what they would like to change about it, to make it easier to follow along & maintain.

I recommend having ONE view of ALL the work that is prioritized for that sprint or release - whether it is defects, new user stories, tech debt or anything else. It will give you a better overall picture and enable trade offs to take place easier.

There is no right or wrong here I think, it depends on the Scrum team what they think works best for them.

My experience is that teams use two boards. One board for planning and tracking the current sprint. The other board is for managing the Product Backlog. This second board is used by the product owner to indicate what items are being prepared. What items are ready for refinement/poker planning and what items are ready for the next spring planning session. This way the overall progress can be tracked on the Product board and the sprint progress can be tracked on the sprint board.
