Hi Community :)
The Sprint Health Gadget counts all story points in the sprint. However, some stories end up being "cancelled" yet have story points on them (for example, these stories get another resolution value than "Done") that get counted in the green (Issues Done) part:
For example, in the picture above I have 3 "cancelled" stories with the resolution value "Won't do" that have a total of 8 points. So the 24 points green bar is inflated by 8 points. I guess one way to tackle this is to remove the story points from "cancelled" stories...
I'd like your input. How are you guys excluding those "cancelled" stories from the green bar tally?
Hi @Kristján Mathiesen and welcome to the community!
Just one man's take... I typically don't worry about canceled issues as they usually lead to an uptick in velocity for that sprint because the team will typically be able to bring in more work as a result. This can all be explained away during retro.
I would also say that this should be treated as an exception case. If you're canceling issues frequently, you probably need to re-evaluate your sprint planning process to see if there is opportunity to catch cancelations before starting the sprint.
Hi @Kristján Mathiesen -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
Yes, and...to what Mark suggested...
What does "cancelled" mean for the team. For example, is it:
Such symptoms may be opportunities to learn and improve for backlog refinement and Sprint Planning. And seem like good things to discuss for the team retrospective.
