Why would all capacity story points going to one team member

Amy Luzetski April 29, 2019

Capacity Settings are: Global and grouped by person. 

I am the project coordinator for a Creative Service group and we use Jira cloud to track our teams workload and tasks. Tickets get assigned to the persons who will be designing the work and story points are used to track 'hours' the designers need to completing the work. I use Portfolio to track the team's individual capacity to make sure that no one is getting overloaded. 

Velocity points in our team are the number of hours the team is available during our 2 week sprints. 

Here is my problem: I hit calculate today and all of the storypoints jumped to one individual team member and the rest of the team shows no work. Why would this happen? It has been working great this whole time, was there an update?

Thanks! Super random, it seem to have fixed itself over night. Still not sure why it went wonky but Thank you for all of the great resources.
