Doing relative story point to estimate US, can we still do capacity planning

My understanding is the user stories should be estimated on Ideal days, then you can use the team capacity because you add the hours that each team members is available and that is how the calculation is set.

Let me know if you have any additional questions. In the meantime, you can review this:
