About this report
The team member allocation report captures the detailed allocation for a user per sprint. This report provides the comparison of users allocations over all current and future sprints to which the user is assigned.
The report is beneficial to Scrum Masters and team leaders to assess the accuracy of user allocations and task estimates. It can be useful to review the report with team members during sprint planning and sprint review meetings. This report is generated by selecting a specific user.

How to interpret this report
The detailed view of the users' allocations shows all sprints to which the user is assigned, their start and end dates, and users' task hours and allocations. The chart below reflects the detailed view visually. Along the x-axis sprints are displayed, as well as the estimated task allocation (green) and team allocation (dark blue) bars. Along the y-axis is the allocation percent.
Ideally, the estimated task allocation should not exceed the team allocation. If the estimated task allocation does exceed the team allocation, then the users were overloaded with tasks based on their team allocation.
