Is it possible to get velocity reports in Kanban Boards or only in sprint boards? I can't seem to find the velocity report but wondering if it's because we're using the Kanban Board. Is there any way to do a custom report to set this up if it's not supported natively? I basically want to assess story point delivery/progression through our board over a defined time window (i.e. every week or two weeks).
you should switch to a Scrum Board as the velocity report needs data that's not available on Kanban boards. Maybe have a look at this thread where an app offering Kanban Velocity was mentioned but I never had a look at it.
It's actually not only possible, but really really easy. Velocity = distance/time
* points completed/time interval = v
What time interval? Whatever one the report wants. Daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly? Go for it! Want an estimate on when something might get done?
* points on backlog between now and completion = x
x / v = estimate in chosen time intervals
Someone who wants to dig into the statistics could probably even add error bars to the estimate.
Wish Jira would to it.
