Sprint Burndown Plus
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could see all sprint Burndown charts that your team worked on plotted on one single timeline! That’s what Utkarsh & I thought a few months back when we started work on the Burndown+ extension. And here we are… Sprint burndown plus not only shows you all your team sprint burndown charts plotted on one time line, but it offers you the ability to slice and dice this data.

For example, in the screen shot below, the selected task ‘Add unit tests throughout the project’ was first added in Sprint 2 and marked done, then it was reopened in Sprint 3 and was carried forward to Sprint 4 before officially being closed.
Figure 1 – Sprint burndown + is divided into 2 parts, the sprint timeline and the selected sprint dashboard
Figure 2 – Zoom in on the Sprint timeline
What’s in the box?
The first version of Avanade Sprint burndown+ extension allows you to,
Give user the ability to click a task in the task grid and plot the task on the timeline (notice the Coral on the timeline, this indicates that the task was first started in Sprint 1 and how it has progressed through the different sprints)
