How can I limit my project's capacity in a sprint based on their velocity?

Is there a way to limit the number of points you allow into an upcoming sprint based on the team's velocity? 


(It looks like Portfolio might have a notification, but I"m interested in actually not allowing the to go over the #)

Hi Gayathri,

Not possible to limit story points when adding issues to a sprint. Even in Portfolio, it just shows you that you are overbooked, but it does not stop people from adding stories to a sprint.

Thank you
