Visual complexity indicator for easier and better sprint planning based on your team's velocity
Display the real relative size of your backlog items
The Backlog Forecaster adds a visual indicator to the planning view for sprints and backlogs with the real relative size of the items based on story points.
Match the team's velocity with your plan
The measured velocity of previous sprints is a good indicator to get a prediction for the future. The Backlog Forecaster displays that information and informs you if a sprint or backlog is way too small or big.
The Velocity Marker
The Velocity Marker shows visually how many sprints you would need to complete the current backlog or sprint directly within the Forecaster Indicator.
