DevOpSmartBoard – Multiple Team Capacity


DevOpsSmartBoard – Multiple Team Capacity

The capacity tool in azure DevOps sprint capacity helps you make sure your team isn’t over or under committed for the sprint. Sprint capacity time is calculated either in hours or days. Capacity takes into consideration the variation in work hours by team members. It also considers holidays, vacation days, and non-working days. Because days off and time available for each team member may vary from sprint to sprint, set capacity for each sprint.

A team’s daily capacity for a given sprint cycle is either over or underutilized when a team member is a member of multiple teams. You cannot view team capacity, capacity of user per day, each team member days off for numerous teams in a consolidated manner in an Azure DevOps.

In this blog we will discuss about Multiple Team Capacity. This feature provides information of Team’s total and current Capacity, Capacity of individual team member per day, team member days off in a single pane shown in fig (a).
