How can I show Scrum Teams and Kanban Teams in a single plan?

I have one Project with a single backlog. The backlog is split between 2 scrum teams and one kanban team. Will the kanban team need it's own portfolio plan or can it be shown along with the other two scrum teams?

Hi Ebony,

It's certainly not necessary to have separate plans for each. You can definitely have multiple teams of different types within the same plan.

However, I would recommend that if each team has a big scope (1000s of open issues being worked on at any time) then it would be worth having separate plans for each.

Let me know if you have any questions about that.

Two steps:
1. Select your portfolio then select "configure" from the ellipsis next to the portfolio name
Add the teams under configuration/ issue sources.
Select the board to pull issues (kanban, scrum, agile)

2. From your portfolio landing page select team tab
select "create team"
name it then add
find the team from your list and select the issue board to pull issues from (Kanban or Scrum)

Thanks Ryan. I followed these steps but after I "create team" and associate it to the appropriate board, it shows as Scrum. I figured out I had to go into the plan configuration settings and change the Planning unit to days to give me the option to change this team to Kanban.

You are welcome Ebony, the source is whatever instantiation the board was originally, i.e. if it was created as a Kanban board, then the source will be Kanban. 
Good call on changing it. You found a way! :)

f your scrum teams use story points you can't mix the team/project types.
