How to: Exclude Spike Sprints/Iterations from Agility Velocity Reports

This feature is available in all editions


I would like to have a spike sprint/iteration between some of my normal sprints and I don't want them included in the velocity reports. Is there a way to accomplish this?


Yes. You can create a child project called Spike with its own sprint/iteration schedule below your existing project, and then create the spike sprint in that Spike project. Because it has its own schedule, the velocity reports for the main project will exclude the spike sprint. Note that story estimates, etc. would still roll up to the parent project as a whole in this scenario. If you don't want that, you can create a peer project for your spikes to keep them wholly separate from a reporting standpoint.
