I'm making this sprint backlog template available free of charge and without restrictions on use.  All I ask is that you leave the "credits" section in place.

This template has the following features:

  • Dynamically sizes the burn-down charts based on the number of planned sprints.
  • Accounts for holidays (which are customizable).
  • Team member planned absences are accounted for.
  • Supports ideal time estimation (but does not require it).
  • Burn down charts show completed and remaining work against the planned capacity, which allows expansion or reduction of the plan to be differentiated from team performance.
  • One document can track as many sprints as needed.
  • Written in MS Excel 2010 but does not use any VBA.

The template itself is here.  Hope it proves useful to you.
