What's the difference between Committed Story Points and Planned Story Points?

Emma Willcox May 23, 2023

In Jira Align, I can see Committed and Accepted Story Points on the M1 Report and Planned and Accepted on the Teams View (Team > Manage Teams > Select Team > Sprints).

The Committed and Planned Story Points for my teams in Jira Align are almost always different.

What's the difference between Committed and Planned Story Points please? When is each value determined?

Points Committed only counts the LOE/Story Points on those Stories that were assigned to the Sprint before the Sprint Start Date.  Points Accepted includes the LOE of all Stories accepted regardless of if they were assigned to the Sprint before the start date or after.

In addition to what @Allan Maxwell already defined above, planned story points are typically the stories assigned in the sprint currently.  However, I always recommend selecting help on the specific report/page you are reviewing to see how the field and calculations are defined and calculated.

Thanks both - this has been bugging me for ages! Great to get a really clear, specific answer.

How does the integration with Jira Software play into this.  Is it the anchor sprint start date that's used for committed or the sprint start date coming from Jira Software through the sync?
