Velocity by Priority Report


This feature is available in Enterprise and Ultimate editions.



The Velocity by Priority report breaks the Effort that was completed during a sprint/iteration into different priority levels, based on the Priority of completed (closed) workitems.  The velocity by priority is measured in points or hours, just like the other velocity reports.

Use this report to track completed (closed) work at different priorities and to plan future sprints, forecast Effort on future sprints, and track past Effort.


Velocity is often used to make business decisions, so it's important to understand exactly what velocity indicates.  To learn more about this key agile concept, explore some of these links:
