Team capacity in the ongoing sprint

Svajunas Gaina July 25, 2022


I've noticed that when viewing ongoing sprint form the advanced roadmaps "Allocated hours" reduces every day as the remaining estimate decreases though total capacity does not change. Is this functionality as intented or I am missing something?

It might be misleading viewing it after the sprint is started, as it does not account for the remaining capacity as the sprint goes on while taking into account remaining work.

For example:
Day 1; 200/200 100% full
Day 2 160/200 80% full

Hi @Svajunas Gaina,

Yes, I believe this works as intended. In scrum, a sprint is planned ahead and the amount of hours / story points committed to is - by the book - not supposed to change either during that sprint. If your team follows this practice and does not add additional work after the sprint was started, the commitment / capacity balance during the sprint and your long term planning should not be impacted by the fact that time progresses.

Hope this helps!

I've tested functionality with test project more in depth and I realized that 117/200 is the remaining/total work added to the sprint. I thought that total was the sprint capacity.

Thanks for your answer though!
