Analyze release progress

In the Backlog and Team Backlog modules, use different ALM Octane widgets to analyze release progress.

ALM Octane helps you track release progress in many ways:

Progress column

View the Progress column for any feature or backlog item. Hover over the progress bar to see more detail about a specific item:

Note that ALM Octane measures progress for Epics and Features by story points, and progress for Backlog Items in hours.

View the Progress column in both the Grid View and Smart List View.

Planning buckets

In the Backlog module, view the release progress bucket:

In the Team Backlog module, view the Team Progress widget:

In the Team Backlog module, view the planning buckets for each of your team members:

Overview tab widgets

Add the relevant widgets to the Overview tab of the Backlog module or the ALM Octane Dashboard, including:

  • Burn down and Burn Up graphs

  • Release and sprint cumulative flows

  • Feature status in order of rank

  • Feature story points by feature type

  • Control Chart
  • Velocity Tracking

In the Backlog, use the release filter to update each of the widgets for a current release and sprint.

Release forecast widget

Add the Release Forecast widget to the Dashboard module.

This widget displays a line with the forecasted progress of user stories or defects through the end of selected release. This graph also includes details on the release, including finished story points and expected completion.

ALM Octane displays the forecast line after you mark enough Backlog items as Done.
