Planning Board: Resource calculation: Days off of a team member

Friday, December 13, 2019

Hi all,

The question is regarding the calculation of the remaining hours for each  SCRUM team member.

You can define globally the work hours per day and the  work days per week. This is fine, but how do I deal with Meetings, Reviews, Grooming sessions etc.. ?

(-->One possibility would be to create user stories for this and each member would have a task.)

But how do I deal with days off for each member? 
(--> on the sprint level you can define days off. But is this per user or globally taken into account?)

Hi Peter

In general the idea is that you define the average working hours per day for the project. This should account for routine activities.

Then you can update individual Sprints/Releases/Iterations with additional non-working days to account to days, times off that are specific to the sprint.

Hi David,

But those settings are always for the whole SCRUM team, right?

Meaning the hours of all team members are calculated the same way. If I have a member who isn't working a day, but all other members do work, I can't handle it?
