Plan not showing correct progress


Vivek Pandey (1011211) | asked Nov 09 '11, 2:03 a.m.
I have created a release plan which has 4 iterations.

These iterations have onlt "tasks" as work-items.
the complexity attribute is "Estimate".
Track progess as property is set to "Time Spent".

The problem is :
In the release plan, it always shows full green bar for overall release even though it shows progress as only 33/874.

It also shows full green bar for one of the iteration which has not yet started yet.

so it looks like below:
Release ( Progress 33/874 --- FULL GREEN BAR -- Estimate 100 %)
Iteration 1 ( progress 17/20 --- partial GREEN BAR --- Estimate 100%)

Iteration 2 ( progress 16/31 --- partial GREEN BAR --- Estimate 100%)

Iteration 3 ( progress 0/735 --- FULL GREEN BAR --- Estimate 100%)

Iteration 4 & 5 (progress 0/32 --- Empty bar--- Estimate 100%)


So why the behaivor for Release and Iteration 3 progress bar different than expected ?

Formula for % Estimate = work item story * (100 / total amount of work items)

For your iteration 3, % Estimate = 0 * (100 / 735) = 0 = 100%
