I'm trying to create a decent burndown chart for the team using the rapid board feature, but the chart is missing a guideline (see screenshot), even though it's mentioned in the legend on the right. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong please? Thanks!
By looking at your chart I believe that you added some issues after starting your sprint (scope change), the problem is that the that the burndown chart guideline is generated when the sprint starts, and it will not get updated when scope change happens, so the guideline is there but is in zero. Starting your sprint with issues in it should solve your problem.
Hope it helps.
I just ran into the same issue. The Sprint was started at the beginning of the Sprint Planning session, then the stories were added, broken down into tasks, and then the estimation (in hours) of the individual tasks was done. Since the Sprint was already started, all of the stories were listed as Scope Change at the bottom of the page.
To solve this, I went back to the planning board and changed the start time of the Sprint to the end of the planning session, right after all of the estimations were done. Going back to the Burndown chart, I can now see the guideline, which previously was going from 0 on the left to 0 on the right.
