Hi, My Current Sprint Burndown chart starts from the wrong number entirely!
I have a total of 124 points in my sprint when I clicked START SPRINT but when I look at the burndown chart it Shows that the sprint started at around 100 point (grey line). This means my my actual workline (in red) shows that I am already well behind when in fact I should be ahead!
Why is this so vastly wrong?
Start Sprint containing tickets worth 124 points
Close 1 ticket worth 8 points and set a 13 point ticket to 'In Progress'
Check the Burndown chart for Active Sprint, it shows grey line starts at 100 and the redline well above that, how can this be????
I just had an epiphany. I think I know why this is happening. I am backdating the start of the sprint and Jira is grabbing all the changes I made during that time and including them in the sprint. The only reason I backdate (usually by about 5 minutes) is because it takes me a few minutes from the end of one sprint to starting the next to get everything arranged. I want the sprints to end at the same time 8:00am but when I choose 2 weeks it says it will end at 8:05. So I set the start time to 8:00am not thinking that jira will grab the last 5 minutes of rearranging tickets and include that in the sprint.
My opinion, no matter what I set the start time to for the sprint. Anything that was done before I clicked the start button should not be included in the sprint.
I can still see no reason at all for this. It just seems to be summing the Points wrongly. On the backlog view it clearly says 'Total 124' but the burn-down clearly starts running down from 101. Whereas the red line starts from where ti should start from at around mid-120's.
This just looks like a JIRA Bug to me.
