How to calculate average velocity using eazyBI

I'd like to create a calculated measure that shows the average velocity of the sprints displayed in my chart. For example, in the attached image, a fourth column would show that the velocity across all sprints is 21. Can anyone provide guidance?

Thank you.

Hi Ryan,

Easier way of doing this would be to add the All Sprints level and add a new calculated member that would calculate average for all Sprints on the All level - the 'Story points closed' measure would not be necessary as it shows average only on all level, but for each individual Sprint shows the Story points closed.

See screenshot example with Story points resolved (I did not have good data for Story points closed)

Here is the formula for the Average using Story points closed as in your example 

  Descendants([Sprint].CurrentMember, [Sprint].[Sprint]),
    [Measures].[Story Points closed] > 0),
  [Measures].[Story Points closed]

Let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with!
Kind regards,

Hi, Lauma. Thank you for this. It's almost exactly what I'm looking for. The problem I have now is the "last 90 days" portion. It seems to be pulling in any sprint that had an issue change status in the past 90 days. (e.g., Sprint 4 ended a year ago, but a story from Sprint 4 had a status change last week. This seems to be causing Sprint 4 to now be included in the data.) I want to only include data from sprints that closed in the past 90 days. Can you help me take it to that level? Thanks again.


You are correct, the Story points closed measure with Time dimension is grouping the data based on when it was recorded. So if the story is closed now, it does not matter when the Sprint was closed, it shows that in last 90 days there was a story closed in this sprint. 

In the case you have described, you should not use the Time dimension, but create a new calculated member in Sprint dimension that groups all Sprints that are closed and have End date in last 90 days. Following formula would do that

    [Measures].[Sprint Closed?] = 'Yes' AND 
    DateBetween([Sprint].CurrentMember.get('End date'),'90 days ago','today')

Then you can select this calculated member from Sprint dimension instead of All Sprints. 
Additional changes will be necessary also to the average story points closed to show the Average on the highest level of the aggregated sprints. Change it to following 

    ChildrenSet([Sprint].CurrentMember)}, [Sprint].[Sprint]),
    [Measures].[Story Points closed] > 0),
  [Measures].[Story Points closed]

Here is a screenshot example

Kind regards,

Thank you! This is exactly what I hoped for!
