About this report

With the program allocation report, you can review the load of all teams in your program to understand the distribution/allocation of work. The report shows the planned versus accepted story points for each team by sprint. The Points Planned row shows the loaded story points for a sprint, while the Points Accepted row shows the accepted story points for a sprint. Also, you can view the Avg Team Velocity value for each team.

The Program Totals table at the top of the report shows the total story points loaded in the sprint for all teams. The Total Avg Team Velocity for all teams is also displayed.

Points Planned row color and calculations:

Hover over a cell to view the Sprint Load.

Sprint Load % = ((Points Planned) / (Average Team Velocity)) * 100

  • White = 0-1% 
  • Yellow = 2-89% 
  • Olive = 90-99% or 101-104% 
  • Green = 100% 
  • Red = 105% or more

Points Accepted rows do not change color.

How to interpret this report

Use the report to view the team's performance and determine if the workload is evenly distributed among teams, identify the teams that are overloaded and the teams that are underallocated, and adjust the workload as necessary.
