Does Committed in Velocity Chart consider task being Assigned or Unassigned?

Does Committed in Velocity Chart consider task being Assigned or Unassigned or is being on the Sprint enough to consider the task as Committed?

Welcome to the Community!

It is just that the team has selected the task to do during the sprint.  It doesn't need to be assigned to anyone

A few Scrum teams I've worked with have had two broad approaches to assigning issues:

  • Don't bother - if it's "in progress" and you didn't put it there yourself, it's not your problem until someone else in the team asks you for help/advice/questions
  • Automate - the person who moves it to in-progress is picking it up, so set the assignee to them

But despite my offering options around assignee, no, it really is just "we committed to it"

Thank you Nic and Trudy!

Hello @aabhushan_mainali 

Welcome to the community.

Committed in the Velocity Chart is the total story points for issues in the sprint at the time the sprint was started. It doesn't matter if the issue is assigned or not.
