Identifying new tasks in the middle of a sprint

Seeing the velocity chart with planned and completed tasks during a sprint, is there a way to filter which of these planned/completed tasks were new tasks added in the middle of the sprint?


I'm trying to identify which tasks are being inserted during a sprint and check how many of the original planned tasks and how many of the newly inserted ones were done.


Also, are the said Planned tasks on the velocity charts considering new tasks, and, are completed tasks considering them as well?

Hi @vincenzo.cavalcanti ,

The velocity report does not include stories added to the sprint after it has started in the "commitment" column. it does include the added stories in the "completed" column so you can get an accurate representation of the team's velocity over time. 

If you run the sprint report (or click one of the hyperlinks to a sprint in the velocity report) you will be able to see which stories were  added to the sprint after it was started; they will be marked with an asterisk (*) next to the story key in both the "Completed" and "Not Completed" sections of the report. Also, if the story points for any story in the sprint changed after the sprint was started or after a story was added to the active sprint you will see the change in the story points column. 

Here is some more info on the velocity chart:


Hope this helps, 


I never noticed the asterisk, thank you so much, that will help a lot!
