Sum of stories with story points, in the ready status EXCLUDING issues in an active sprint

I have been at this one for a while and I keep getting the same count with different calculations, all of them still including the current sprints worth of sized stories. What am I missing?? Cheers!

Sum(Filter(
Descendants([Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember, [Issue].[Issue]),
[Measures].[Status] matches 'Ready'), 
CASE WHEN 
  [Measures].[Story Points created] > 0 AND
  IsEmpty([Sprint].CurrentMember.get('Start date'))
THEN 
 NonZero([Measures].[Story Points created])
END)

Bump :slight_smile:

Hi Bryan
Usually the measure “Issue status” is being used to filter issues in a specific status.

Sum(Filter(
Descendants([Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember, [Issue].[Issue]),
[Measures].[Issue Status] = "Ready"), 
CASE WHEN 
  [Measures].[Story Points created] > 0 AND
  IsEmpty([Sprint].CurrentMember.get('Start date'))
THEN 
 NonZero([Measures].[Story Points created])
END)

But If you also filter the calculation by [Sprint].currentmember we would need to see the report definition to understand this use-case better.
Please export and share it here.
By sharing it you won’t share the results of your report - just it’s structure (description of columns, rows etc.)

Thanks @martins.vanags!

I am doing a report on team backlog health. For stories to count towards a healthy backlog they need to have story points and be in the ‘ready’ status. Then it’s a traditional calculation of the teams average velocity per sprint times 2 (2 sprints being the goal for the number of total story points ready in a teams backlog.)

The issue is that I can not find a way to exclude stories that match the criteria above but are already committed in an active sprint.

Here is the definition of the report as you requested:

Thank you as always for the support!

Hi,

If you don’t use a “Sprint” dimension in the report it is no sense to use [Sprint].currentmember.get(‘Start date’) as it would not return anything.

If “Sprint” dimension is not used in the report, the current member expression in such calculation by default returns takes a member “All sprints” and it has no value in “Start date” property.

I think you can try filtering issues by Issue sprint status property:

Nonzero(
Sum(Filter(
Descendants([Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember, [Issue].[Issue]),
[Measures].[Issue Status] = "Ready"
AND
[Measures].[Issue Sprint Status] <> "Active"
AND
[Measures].[Story Points created] > 0
), 
Measures].[Story Points created]
))

Thank you Martin! The issue was I did not know how to filter the issue sprint status correctly.

Cheers!
