Capacity Forecast taking exceptions into account


Does anyone know how to adapt the given capacity of an individual team member and therefore see the sprint capacity forecast. This was easily done in portfolio by going to the team section and adding exceptions for each member. With out this function the road-map tool lost a lot of power. 


thanks for the help.

Hello @David Milford ,

Thanks for reaching out and in the new interface for Advanced Roadmaps, the scheduling for capacity is now based on the entire teams capacity for a more macro view rather than a micro view of the schedule, and Individual capacity was removed in favor of team capacity and is covered in more detail in the "Changes in the Improved interface" documentation:

Managing capacity

Previously, you'd be able to plan the individual capacity of your team members.

In the improved interface, individual capacity planning is replaced by team capacity planning. When auto-scheduling a plan, the total capacity of a team to complete the work being scheduled will be taken into account. To do this, you must directly set team capacity in your plan.

And Additional details in the "Future releases and limitations" documentation under the "Removed functionality" section:

Shared people settings – Since individual capacity planning is not supported, any configured settings for global availability and absences and team availability and exceptions will not apply to plans with the improved interface.
