ScrumDesk 3.11: The Capacity Planner. How much can we commit?
Your sprint backlog is planned and backlog items are broken into subtasks. They are even estimated and assigned. Now, the moment of truth. Will you be able to finish what you have just committed to?
Scrum teams check the capacity of all team members by a simple form. Capacity = number of days at work during the sprint * number of hours per day.
In ScrumDesk you need just to enter those data and all team members will see if they have fewer or more hours assigned in the sprint backlog. No more Excel or calculators for this! Even with the colored indication. Plus comparison to other members so you can level work in your team.
Many of our customers are freelancers or agencies developing software solutions for commercial clients. And, they need to measure a time and even have timesheets ready for an invoicing process.
Timesheet document is available in the REPORTS\Documents section. You can see work logs of all team members or just selected ones.
New retrospective techniques

Green icon – due date in less than one week
Orange icon – due date in less than 3 days
Red icon – due date in less than 1 day
[IMPROVEMENT] Major refactoring to speed up editing and loading of details.
