Purpose: Helps the team focus on which PBIs they need to refine for development.
This visual shows which the sizes of PBIs for the current release – and which require the team’s attention to either estimate or to break down into smaller PBIs.
Select the Collection, Project, Iteration Path and, if needed, the Area Path. If you want to save the report for later you can enter a name and save it (though probably best to do this once you have chosen the states that you want in the report) Afterwards click ‘Load’ to get the data and then hide the selection panel.
