Unavailability for sprint (Work environment)


varun ibm (611722) | asked Aug 20 '13, 8:08 a.m.
Hi all,

I am using rtc 4.0 and I would like to know if there is a way if I could enter my unavailability for sprint in hours(example : 2 or 3 hours) instead a whole day. If I go to work environment I can only make a whole day as unavailable.

Please let me know how this could be achieved.

Note : This should also make impact on the plan scheduler.

Thanks in advance

The scheduled absences only allows for days, but in the description you could specify the duration in hours. This would not affect the plan scheduler however.
This is a good candidate for an Enhancement request. I would recommend you open up an Enhancement work item.

One more question for you Stephanie. 


Is it possible for the whole scrum team to enter the unavailability for entire day ? Instead each one doing it individually ?

The availability must be configured on a per-person basis. There is no configuration to set unavailability for the entire team.

For absences shorter than a day, the easiest approach is to either create a task for that absence, set to the number of hours of the absence (if it is just absence for a single day), or to adjust the percentage time assigned to that team area (if it is a repeated absence for multiple consecutive days).
