Introduction

In Azure Boards, while working with sprints we define the capacity of the team and during the same time you can add team members days off or team days off so that sprint capacity does not consider days off which are defined in capacity tab.

How to add days off for Team member

Select team member days off link which opens Days off for: [Team member name] dialog box and you can add days off with start date and end date. If there are multiple days off in between sprint dates you can use “Add additional days off”

How to add days off for entire team

Select Team days off link which opens Days off for the entire team dialog box and you can add days off. If there are multiple days off in between sprint dates you can use “Add additional days off”. These days off are applicable to your whole team.

Note: Start date and End dates of days off must be within Sprint iteration dates.
