I'm a scrum master who recently joined a new organization and the way their kanban board is set up, I have no visual of the velocity of the team or know how many story points have been completed in a certain amount of time. Everything is manually counted by other SM and then put in an Excel sheet.
I know that all of these information can be automate directly in Jira.
Can you tell me what features exactly does a kanban board needs to be able to have all that I described above?
Thank you so much in advance for your help!
Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
You can only generate a velocity chart when you are measuring velocity, and that requires that you have estimates on stories and are executing them in a known time frame. Kanban does not have estimates, it measures throughput. You can, of course draw an equivalence by saying 1 card = 1 estimate unit, but Kanban does not have the time-boxing. So it can't draw a Velocity chart.
