Creating a capacity plan is the first step in making your team predictable and comfortable to commit to your sprint scope. But you may still find yourself wondering how much work they can each really take on, how that differs from one engineer to the other, and how to keep a comfortable work environment while committing to valuable sprints.
Using GoRetro’s Jira integration, you will get a real indication of the capacity per engineer, based on their previous sprints work.
To use your existing integration with our Capacity Calculator you first need to do a one time set up:
Please note: This mapping will be saved for your GoRetro team members and will automatically apply to your next capacity calculators. If you want to calculate capacity for members who are not part of your GoRetro team you'll need to map them every time you create a new capacity calculator.
After you mapped your team members, you can import their capacity per day:
Please note: If some team members are not mapped to their Jira accounts you'll need to input their capacity manually.
You can set your integration by clicking the same Jira icon next to the “Capacity per day” field, and then clicking on the “Integrate to Jira now” button.
You can learn more about our Jira integration and its benefits through the "Setting up your Jira integration" article.
