Release burndown charts also play a central part in agile projects. The signature shows the overall progress for a project or a delivery.
Showing the release burndown chart
In order to show burndown charts on releases / milestones you must assign a sprint / iteration to the release. The sprint must start before the release is due.
The start date of the burndown is when the first of all assigned sprints start and the end of the burndown is when the release is due.
The burndown chart
Depending on if you use points and or ideal days, different boards will be visible (like "Points" below) in the burndown chart in the list view. Click each board to switch the burndown chart in the timeline view between work remaining, ideal days or points.
Items in the backlog that are not committed to a sprint but assigned to a release are also included in the burndown numbers
