Release Planning board calculations - what's the parenthetical number?

  • 1.  Release Planning board calculations - what's the parenthetical number?

    Posted 12-26-2019 10:13 AM
    Some users have started reporting that the Release Planning page's velocity/estimation has started to feature an additional number. We know that the format is

    [total of feature preliminary estimate points] of [user set velocity]

    but shows in some projects/ARTs as

    [total of feature preliminary estimate points] of [user set velocity] (???)

    What's that last number? The documentation page says nothing. (Broadcom, please take for action -- update your docs!)

    Hi David,

    This is just a guess, since we don't have the new UI yet, but is it the *number* of user stories/defects?As opposed to the points?

    Curious,

    A Broadcom employee replied on a separate forum that this parenthetical value is a roll up from children projects. The documentation was never updated for this enhancement.

    The third number, in Parenthesis, is reflecting the aggregation (or roll-up) of just Child Projects in the currently defined scope; NOT including the currently selected Project.

    David,
       It is Child project release rollup.  I'll ask Documentation to put a story in their backlog to update the documentation.  Thanks for the feedback.

    Hi David,
    This has been updated in the documentation for the Release Planning Board. See the section on Release Capacity.  https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/agile-development-and-management/rally-platform-ca-agile-central/rally/customizing-top/use-apps/app-catalog/release-planning-board.html

    Thanks for the feedback,

    Thanks! I've given kudos to our user who asked us about the new capacity numbers.
