Individual burndown chart


on agile we have the sprint burndown chart which helps managers track progress on sprints. Is there a way we can have a similar burndown but based on an individual rather than a sprint?

I would never recommend to do it as burndown are meant for teams, and the focus of team members have to be to make the team burn down reach it's targets.

At the same time if you want to see the individual burn down, create a board with your own filter (assignee == rahul and all other conditions that you need) and it will show your burndown chart.

Thanks Renjith....that should work..

You can also use "Single level group report" and set the filter to your sprint and group it by assignee. It works very well.

I believe that this can be accomplished via a dashboard gadget. If you use the Classic Agile Gadget, you can create a filter for a specific sprint and individual. The gadget should then show you the burndown for that particular filter.

Render the burn-down-chart PDF template with the PDF View Plugin, by passing the set of issues returned by the sprint's filter, further filtered by the assignee field.

See: sample report

It may not be easiest way to accomplish this, but this is probably the most flexible, due to the template customization possibilities.
