Is there a way to set the Guideline on the Burndown Chart to be a user specified # of hours?

Our team is a Software consultancy and would like to track our progress against CAPACITY of team members, not just the # of hours the stories they committed to for a sprint. Is there any way to do that?

Hey there, Nancy.

I believe that current Burndown Chart only caters for one element ( at a time like Story Points, Original Time Estimate, etc. The capacity of members is not something that is offered by default. Perhaps you can try to check with our Atlassian Experts ( to see whether the report can be customized?

Hope this helps.

Warm regards,
