Sprint Team Capcity

Hey everyone,

Is there a way in JIRA to set Sprint capacity based on my team capacity, for the following scenarios: 

1. Time estimation:

Let say I have 2 developers that are working 8h a day 5 days a week, so for 2 weeks sprint, I have 160h.

When I'm dragging issue from my backlog to the sprint, is there a way to know that I reached team's capcity?

2. Story points estimation:

From what I understand I supposed to know time velocity after a few sprints.

Is there a way to set this number as team "capacity", and to be able to use this for the next sprint estimation?

3. Story points & Time tracking

What if I use story points estimation for user stories, and time estimation for sub-tasks, how can I estimate the amount of work my team can handle?


Thank you,
