What is the best way to look at thrash in an active sprint?

Hi folks, 


I was curious what the best way to determine thrash was within a current sprint? By "thrash", what I mean is the amount of Issues were added or taken away from the sprint during the active dates of the sprint. 

As a Product Manager this helps me understand how the goals might've shifted during the Sprint itself and helps explain potential misses/changes. 


Thanks in advance!

Hello, @Michael Huber-Hedstrom,

Alongside the earlier suggestions, I recommend trying out the Performance Objectives app. If you find it helpful to summarize these changes across multiple sprints, the 'Sprint Scope Change' field will precisely meet your requirements:


Additionally, the app provides additional sprint metrics and insights you may find useful:
Cycles in Sprint
New & Rolling Story Points
Resolved & Unresolved in Sprint
Display SP by All / First / Last / Resolved / Unresolved in Sprint

Moreover, the app provides a broad range of essential metrics that can significantly enhance your reporting capabilities, allowing you to set and visualize custom KPIs directly on your Jira dashboard. If you're interested, you can explore these features with a free trial to assess how they align with your needs.

Please be aware that I am a member of the team behind the app. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or need assistance.

Best regards,

Hi @Michael Huber-Hedstrom

Try the Team Velocity gadget offered by our Great Gadgets app. 

Besides the regular velocity numbers like Committed and Completed, it can also display Added, Remove, Scope Change, Scope Change Absolute,  %Added, %Removed, %Scope Change, etc. Works by any time of estimate and can include subtasks. 

You can easily configure the gadget to display the chart that you want.  


In addition, the gadget can also display a Data tab with all the data, which you can easily export in CSV.


This app offers many other useful gadgets for Scrum, Kanban, SAFe, etc. Just have a look over the articles from our blog to make an idea.

I hope this helps.

Hello @Michael Huber-Hedstrom 

Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

Within the Burndown report for each Sprint you can find information about issues added to and removed from the sprint. There is no summary/overview report of how many issues were added to/removed from a collection of sprints.

There might be a third party app in the Atlassian Marketplace that would help you get that information, though I don't have any first hand experience with an app that does that.

The Adaptavist ScriptRunner app has a function to allow you to search for the list of issues added to a specific sprint after the sprint started, but they don't yet have a function to search for issue removed from a sprint after it started.
