SPRINT BURNDOWN CHART

Track your sprint progress with a sprint burndown chart. Are you meeting your sprint goals or are you behind? Understand your team's velocity and see how the time is spent. Communicate your sprint status with a burndown chart that is constantly visible. 

 

HOW IS YOUR SPRINT BURNING?

A sprint burndown chart shows you how much work there's left in the sprint vs time. It is used for predicting when all the work in the sprint will be completed. The vertical axis represents work items and the horizontal axis represents the time. As the team completes tasks, the chart shows the work done vs the remaining work for during the sprint.

 

 ARE YOU AHEAD OF OR BEHIND THE TARGET?

Immediately see how many tasks are done and how many there are still to do in your current sprint. Are you behind the target? How many days do you have to catch up? Or still on target? Congratulations - but can you maintain that smiley face throughout the sprint :)

WHAT IS YOUR TEAM'S VELOCITY?

See your team's velocity during the last four sprints. If your velocity is stable so that your team can keep the same pace of work from one sprint to another, you can use that as a tool for planning longer term goals.

 



Common questions

Does this chart support time estimates like story points?

How is ahead / behind target calculated?

Yes. You can use either estimates or task counts as the unit. You can select the unit in the chart settings when starting a new sprint.

 

 

 

 

 

The current sprint view only looks at the tasks in the current iteration. It calculates a velocity for the iteration (number of points completed divided by the number of days passed in the iteration) and then extrapolates how many days it would take to complete the remaining points with that velocity. The behind target / ahead target value shown is the difference between that extrapolation and the actual number of days left in the sprint.
