Whether your team is working on milestones, sprints, or any other cadence, you can use Height to track how many points get completed and your team's velocity.

How to set up point tracking

  1. First, create a new custom attribute for your workspace, like "Points" or "Effort".

    You can use a text-type or a single select-type attribute. If you choose single select-type, make sure to add options for your various point values, like "1", "2", "3", "4", and "5".

  2. Then, in your list view, make the attribute visible from View menu → Add attribute.

  3. When you hover over the bottom of the column, you'll see a "Configure" button appear. Click on this and choose "Total" to see how many points there are.

Summing points by sprint or assignee

Looking to do some more advanced point tracking, like seeing how many points have been allotted per sprint or even per assignee in a given sprint?

Use Sectioning (View menu → Section by) to section your list by sprint or assignee and then configure to see individual totals.

Sprint planning using Section by Sprint to see how many points your current and upcoming sprints have:

💡Tip: Use filters to only find tasks from this sprint that are "Done" or "In review" if you only want to count points of tasks that were completed or nearly completed during the sprint.
