Hi Community! I’m here to announce the launch of our burndown insight, available now in Jira Software Cloud for Scrum teams. This insight is designed to help you manage scope and make decisions from right within the context of your current sprint.
We know that teams often turn to the burndown report in Jira Software to track their remaining work or decide whether something new can be pulled into the sprint. Now, you no longer need to navigate away from your sprint to find this information. The new burndown insight brings the power of the burndown report directly onto your board to help you make faster decisions and diagnose issues as easily as possible.
The burndown insight can be found in the insights panel on your board view. To open this panel, click the board insights button in the top right-hand corner of your board.
The burndown insight helps to visualise what work has been completed, and the total work remaining in your current sprint. This can help you predict your team’s likelihood of successfully achieving the sprint goal, and make data-driven decisions about any new work that arises during your sprint.
The grey line on this chart represents your team’s optimal sprint progress, and the blue line represents your team’s current progress. This blue line will fluctuate up as issues are added to the sprint, and down as they are completed. The discrepancy between these two lines can be used as a signal to indicate if the team has taken on too much (or not enough!) work, and whether the current sprint scope is achievable by the end of the sprint.
If the sprint’s scope exceeds your team’s current progress, the ‘heads up’ alert will surface on the insight to warn that your team is not currently on track to complete the work in the sprint. Otherwise, the ‘on track’ message will show.
We hope this insight can help your team make decisions, monitor progress and continuously improve work practices.
We’ve got lots of exciting new insights coming soon to your board and backlog, so stay tuned for those updates!
Lastly, please provide us with feedback via. the feedback button on the insights panel — we’re excited to hear what you think! Your feedback helps us to shape our roadmap and improve our product.
You may be experiencing an issue with the sprint creation date.
The sprint burndown insight currently requires data from sprints started after the insight rollout date (which was Monday 21 March). Try starting and creating a new sprint to see the burndown insight in action!
