How to: Track Progress of a Story, Defect, or Workitem in Agility

This feature is available in all editions


I want to track the progress of a story/backlog item in the grid. Please explain what data is used in the calculation?


The indicators on the progress bar are calculated from the Effort logged on a work item. The calculation for the Done amount in the progress bar changes when you turn on Effort Tracking, as follows:

  • When Effort Tracking is enabled, the progress bar uses the actual Done amount (= sum of Effort) for the sprint
  • With Effort Tracking not enabled, the calculation estimates the Done amount as (Detail Estimate - To Do)

To learn more about progress bars, see Release Scheduling Progress Bars for more information.
