Overview

The Sprint Burndown (or Iteration Burndown) report shows the amount of remaining To Do in a sprint/iteration. 

Use this report to see a team's progression through its workload.

Agile Insight

The remaining work appears to "burn down" as the team completes (or closes backlog items and defects) work during the selected time period. The team's goal is to complete all planned work by the end of the period so that the final snapshot shows nothing left to do. To learn more about this key agile concept, explore some of these links:

Accessing this Report

On the main menu:

  • Reports > Iteration Burndown (in the Iteration Reports section)

Interpreting this Report

This report shows the following:

  • To Do (Red line). Shows the total amount of remaining work during the selected time period. Each point on the line is the sum of the To Do remaining on that date.

  • Ideal Line (Grey Line)Shows the amount of work that should be completed in an "ideal" scenario. The "burndown" slope shows the straight path (from the highest point on the first day of the period) and assumes equal progression every day thereafter. To learn more about how the Ideal line is calculated, see How is the Ideal Line on a Burndown report determined?

Prerequisites

  • All VersionOne trend reports require at least two data points. If not enough data is available, the report may be blank.  Depending on the duration you select in the filters, at least one complete period of data must be available to draw a trend line. When selecting days, this means that the minimum duration is actually 2 days, which will include 2 data points.

  • Your Show Weekend report settings may affect how much data is selected.  For example, if you choose two days as duration and one day is a Saturday or Sunday, and you have elected to not Show Weekends, then you may not have sufficient data to show a trend.

Report Filters/Parameters

  • Sprint/Iteration: Shows data assigned to the sprint/iteration. The default value is "All".
  • Team: Shows Team-specific data for the project or program. The default value is "All" or "Blank".
Backlog Group:
Shows data assigned to the selected backlog group.
  • Start Date: The first date the report begins calculating data.
    • For project-based reports, the default start date is the project start date.

    • For sprint/iteration-based reports, the default start date is the sprint/iteration start date.

    • For member-based reports, the default start date is 13 weeks prior to the current date.

    • If the start date is set to the current date or later, no data displays.

  • Duration: The number of days, weeks, or months to display.

    • For project-based reports, the default duration is the number of weeks from
      the project's start date to today.

    • For sprint/iteration-based reports, the default duration is the number of days in the
      sprint/iteration.

    • For member-based reports, the default duration is 13 weeks.

    • The report ends at the current date, so if the selected start date and duration
      extend past the current date, no data displays after the current date.
