Monitor capacity on your plan

This page refers to the advanced planning features that are only available as part of Jira Cloud Premium and Enterprise.

We have a separate section for documentation about the project timeline that’s included in Jira. Go to the documentation for project-level roadmaps in Jira.


Your plan shows tabs along the top of your timeline that correspond to an iteration. As issues are assigned to iterations and consume capacity, the green vertical bar rises. That bar turns red when the amount of work assigned exceeds capacity.

To view capacity information, you need to have the timeline bars showing on your plan. Learn how to show or hide your timeline bars.

Select a tab on the timeline to bring up the sprint capacity flyout window:

The Sprint Flyout Window that breaks down capacity on your Advanced Roadmaps for Jira Software Cloud timeline
  1. Sprint information - Name, start and end dates, status lozenge, sprint goal (as defined by administrator), and total sprint capacity

  2. Progress bars - Story points allotted and completed

  3. Further viewing options for this sprint

The number of unestimated issues in your sprint will appear in the sprint capacity window next to the label x unestimated issues. Issues that have due dates within your sprint but are not assigned to it will appear next to the x issues not assigned to sprint label.

You can also capacity of your teams from the Summary tab on the left side navigation. Learn more about the Summary page.
