Is there a way to see total story points for a sprint that has not been started yet?

Hi -

I have several sprints created but I can only see the total story points for the sprint that is started.  Is it possible to see total story points for sprints that have not been started?


Thank you,

Yes it is possible.   If you go into the backlog view in Jira Cloud, even sprints that have not been started will still have an ellipsis box (...) just below the sprint name.  In my case my sprint that isn't started yet is called 'Sample Sprint3'


If you click that button, it bring up this popup:


The Total on this page can then show you the total story points in that sprint right now.

I hope this helps.


Hi Team,

It is showing only the standard-issue type story points and not the sub-task issue type.

Can we see the total story point including the sub-task story point for the sprint?

Note that this only works if at least one issue in that sprint is assigned to someone. If all issues in the sprint are Unassigned, then the ellipsis for some reason is not present. One of the many quirks of Jira.

Hi, we cannot see that ellipsis box (...) in our backlog. Has there been a change or any update?

You need a person assigned to a ticket to get the ellipsis box (...)
