What do you want to do?
Do any of the following from the release details page.
|Extend or shorten a release||
Use either of the following options to extend or shorten a release:
|Modify team velocities and view release capacity||
On the Overview tab on the left, modify team velocities in the Release Expected Capacity area.
Watch the total expected capacity for the entire release aggregate in value in the bottom-right corner of the grid. This values is the total of all team and sprint expected capacities.
Modify work days in the release
Release working days are the days of the week that are considered work days during the release.
Example: If your company works Monday-Friday, select those days as working days. If your company has other working days, select them accordingly.
On the Additional Settings tab, modify the selected Release Working Days.
|Determine item reassignment behavior||
By default, backlog items assigned to another team retain their current statuses. The new team continues work from the point that the original team left off.
To change this behavior, on the Additional Settings tab, in the Item Reassignment area, select to reset the backlog item's status to New.
|Set the storyboard mode||
Determine the mode in which the storyboard operates. On the Additional Settings tab, select either Scrum Mode or Kanban Mode.
For more details, see Set the storyboard mode.
|Add attachments to the release||
On the Attachments tab, click Add Attachment and select a document.
Deactivating a release hides the release in release lists and filters. For example, a deactivated release is not included in the drop down for selecting a release in the Release Backlog, the Dashboard, and in Planning dialog boxes.
This is useful if you have many releases defined in Agile Manager, and the lists of releases to choose from are inconveniently long.
In the release grid, select the release and click Deactivate. Deactivating a release is reversible, and does not delete or hide any release-related data.
Select the release and click Activate to reverse the deactivation.
Note: Deactivated releases are still available for selection in the Release columns in the Product Backlog or Defect Management areas.
To remove a release, on the release details page, click Overview > Remove Release. Any related planning and reporting information is also removed.
You can create a new release based on the configuration of an existing release. The duplicated settings include: teams and team members (including both release and workspace teams), sprint duration, and sprint closure action items.
This is useful, for example, if the same teams carry on in the next release. You can tweak specific team and sprint settings later.
On the release details page, click Overview > Duplicate Release.
Note: Duplicating a release duplicates its release teams. These are additional release teams available in the relevant release only.
Duplicating a release also duplicates its workspace team settings, but the workspace teams themselves are not duplicated. Instead, they are simply assigned to the new release as well as previous releases.
