Use the Extra Configs button to further filter the report by release vehicles or teams. 

It is beneficial to review the report regularly to assist in making future work commitments and identify any negative trends early. This report can be used by Scrum Masters, team and QA managers, and QA/development staff to track story point progress over sprints within a PI.

How are report values calculated?

  • Planned: The sum of effort points from all stories planned in the sprint.
    • Adding or removing stories after the sprint start date will change this value. 
  • Accepted: The sum of effort points from all accepted stories planned in the sprint.
    • Accepting stories after the sprint end date will change this value.


How to interpret this report
