When planning sprints it would be very nice to see a total of the story points that have been added. The only way to do this right now is open a query in Excel and sum the column. Not very handy when planning a sprint using the web client.

        Yes, total Story Points per columnare important to make a burndown graph and keep track of the velocity!

        This was posted 3 years ago, and VSTS (visualstudio.com) still doesn't display sprint goal points? This is just a sum of, usually P1, story points in the sprint. HOW do you do this?

        I am not sure why people are even using TFS- it has no features that are important for agile or scrum. JIRA has all those features, and extremely easy to measure velocity. I am currently using TFS now because it comes with our MS license, but it's so primitive compared to JIRA

        We are working on an extension to do this. The idea is to add an additional Summary tab on the sprint page (Backlog | Board | Capacity | Summary) where a more detailed burndown, story points and more are quickly accessible. Lets chat if you are interested michael@agileextensions.com. But keep posting your feedback to the team here of course :)

        Would be great to be able to create groups like "Developers" and "Testers" so that I could get an aggregated value of points and hours by sub team.

        Aggregation of story points for a sprint plus aggregation of hours for all child tasks for a user story are my requirements.

        This gets a vote from me.

        Additionally, I'd want to see sum of points by developer to make sure that things are well distributed, or that Jr. people have the right amount of points compared to Sr. people.

        Nice idea. Easy then to validate sprint capacity against your known velocity.
