  • Team Capacity have been chosen


  • Projected Sprints allocates team capacity taking into account Epics and child issue estimates

Hi @Igor Koltun and welcome to the Community!

To be honest, I don't think this is going to work. Epics are not planned in sprints (from a scrum board, Epics appear on the epics panel in the backlog and can't even be added to a sprint), and it is even a common scenario that work on an epic spans multiple sprints.

It may be interesting to read up on the following documentation to learn how Plans deal with capacity:

Hope this helps!
