My project's burndown chart constantly shows a flat red line. Is there something I have misconfigured or not had the team update a field in the User Stories? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Are you estimating the issues with story points, hours, or another field? (Note - not sub-task types, only the story level stuff).
Is that the field selected in the estimation statistic for the board?
Are all the issues you expect to be burned down in the far-right column of the board?
1. We are estimating with Story Points.
2. The Estimation Statistic is Story Points but Time Tracking is Remaining Estimate and Time Spent. I think this should be moved to None.
3. Not all of the issues are moved to the far-right (Done) column yet.
Looks to me like you are adding stories into the sprint (or adding points to stories in it) but never completing any. Are you moving your stories into the far right hand column at all?
Thanks for the reply. No I couldn't move the stories to the far right b/c I work with a gov't entity and user story isn't done until it goes through a through security scan. That being said, we deployed over the weekend and I have moved about half of the user stories to the far right (which is Production) for our team. This is what the Burn Down Chart looks like now. It's still looking messed up.
I'm not sure what's wrong with it, could you explain?
It now has the line falling on the far right, as you've marked some stuff "done", so it looks right to me.
I am more accustomed to seeing Burn Down Charts like the example I am showing here. Perhaps, I'm missing a proper configuration in how I track User Stories or something?
Thanks for any insight.
The burndown chart you would look like that if you had been moving the stories to "done" during the sprint. You've moved them all at the end of the sprint and you've been adding points into the sprint during the execution. The graph can only go on the information you give it.
