Release Burnup

The Release Burnup app displays work delivered so far in the release to proactively anticipate whether the release scope will be delivered.

Release Burnup

A burnup app differs from a burndown app in that the burnup includes a scope line that allows you to visualize when work has been added or removed. The chart also represents a more realistic completion date for a release.

Data displayed in the app is in the same format as the Release Burnup chart. Select the chart to go to the Reports tab , where you may view past releases, export, email, and print the chart.

Features include:

  • The vertical axis represents the amount of accepted work in hours.
  • The horizontal axis represents the dates that are contained within the release.
  • Completed story points are represented by green bars.
  • Total scope of work in the release is represented by a black line.
  • Hover over the bars or line to see detailed figures on current and past progress.

Enable the Release Burnup Chart Legend

  1. From the app gear menu, select Settings.
