Team capacity is not affected by individual absences?


Actually the individual absences are not affecting the team capacity anymore like it was in the previous version of Portfolio/Roadmap. I do understand the idea of velocity in a long term consideration, as you mentioned in the blog article here:

But I am really interested to gain the insight if a majority of my team is having a vaccation in the next couple of weeks, or maybe at a specific release date. 

Are there any plans that the capacity feature would be extended? For me as a team manager this would be very helpful.

@Ofir Zeevi - Any update on this?

The ability to log scheduled time-off and forecast velocity implications accordingly is very important to our use case. Thanks.

Hey Thomas,

Thanks for taking the time to add this thoughtful question. I can completely understand the need to adjust the teams capacity/velocity for a specific sprint when team members are unavailable.

We're currently planning to add the ability to adjust your team's velocity for a given sprint that has been created in Jira - it's on the roadmap! I hope that helps :) 

Hey Ofir,

Thanks the honest answer! I guess you can't forecast a day of shipment for this feature to the jira cloud edition, do you?

Maybe it would be helpful to have a roadmap at Atlassian with the absence/capacity information of your development team ;-)
