View Story Points by User

Hello!

As many scrum teams, we use story point estimations for our tasks. As the scrum master, I want to make sure story points are evenly distributed among the team at the beginning of the sprint.

Is there an easy way to check how many story points are assigned to each person before initiating the sprint? It would be annoying to have to manually scroll through each tickets and add up the total...

Er, actually, no.  As a scrum master, you want to make sure that the team knows what they need to achieve during the sprint and you are there to enable them to do it.  Story points are not a factor to consider when the team is selecting which item to do next, or who within the team is going to deal with it.

So, no, there's no reporting on "Story Points per person" because Jira Software's Scrum boards are a Scrum tool, and that's not scrum.

The best you can do is a simple search for "sprint = x", and as you say, scroll through the issues and add up the story points.

Story points are not a factor to consider when the team is selecting which item to do next, or who within the team is going to deal with it.

This may be true in your utopian view of scrum, but let's not pretend that story points aren't an indicator of personal performance or helpful measure of productivity, and that having a view of story points assigned/completed per person would be helpful to certain people.

On the planning view (where you have the backlog on the bottom and the new sprint at the top), there are three dots next to the list participants icons.  Click the three dots and it shows the number of issues and the number of story points per participants.  Very useful!
