What is the relationship between story points and time tracking?
Secondly, if I am using time tracking, can I view the velocity in terms of time tracked?
Where can I find more info about this? I am having a difficult time understanding how time tracking and story points work in relation to velocity and burn down.
There is no relationship. Story points are a measure of complexity, and time-tracking is about estimating how long something might take and who has logged work on the task.
Time tracking is a very valid thing to base your Velocity on - set your board to look at the time estimates and it will work fine.
