Hi Folks! My name is Natalia from the Insights and Data Enablement team.
Over the past 18 months, we have been working to surface useful data-powered insights on the Scrum and Kanban Boards, Backlog and Deployments. With these insights, we want to help teams make timely decisions and drive better outcomes while planning and progressing their work.
We’ve recently expanded the burndown insight to include sprint scope changes, available on the Board in Jira Software Cloud for Scrum teams.
We know things don’t always go according to plan, so we wanted to give you more visibility of scope changes as your team’s sprint progresses.
Designed to be a companion to your daily stand-up, we hope the expanded burndown insight gives you more transparency over unplanned work. Scope change information should equip you with the right amount of detail to manage your team’s sprint priorities effectively. Faster decision-making will help your team achieve their sprint goals.
Having visibility and a way to visualize your scope changes can help your team to:
Track scope creep and unplanned work more effectively.
Understand your team’s likelihood of successfully achieving sprint goals.
Make data-driven prioritization decisions during your sprint.
For example, your team could consider absorbing unplanned work and scope changes as they come along. The information may help you decide how to break up work and carry it over to the next sprint, swapping urgent requests with previously committed tasks and moving tasks of similar sizes to the next sprint or the top of the backlog.
The scope change information will appear under the burndown insight when you add, remove or modify issues after the sprint has started. Navigate to the Insights panel to view this.
Hover over the sprint scope changes to reveal a tooltip with the most recent scope changes. You can also select these data points to see a list of affected work items in a separate tab.
Important: If the burndown Insight is not showing, check to see if:
You’re using story points or issue count as the estimation method for your board. The burndown insight doesn’t support the Original Estimate field and custom estimates.
Issues included estimations before your sprint started when using story points. The burndown insight won’t show during the sprint if no issues were estimated when the sprint started.
Select the Insights button in the top right corner of your active sprint board to view insights.
All teams using a scrum template in either Team-managed or Company-managed projects (formerly known as Next-gen and Classic projects) have a range of insights available to them:
Sprint progress insight
Teams will be able to see if they’re on track to meet their sprint goals at a glance by using this insight. Breaking down your team’s sprint commitment by status and grouping it as To do, In progress, or Done.
The burndown insight helps teams predict how likely they will complete all the work in their sprint. Visualizing completed work (burned down) against total work remaining in your current sprint and highlighting any changes made to the sprint’s scope after it has started.
Issues for attention insight
This insight surfaces flagged and blocked issues in a team’s sprint, helping teams have a quick overview of which issues are high priority or need follow-up.
Note: If you don’t see the Insights button on your board, check to see if you have started your sprint.
