Background:
In our example, we have 2 sub projects defined under 1 main project.  The main project is called "Project 22" and the sub projects are 22 Sub 1 and 22 Sub 2.

Each sub project will have a feature with a single user story assigned.

Instructions:

Dates
The Plan Progression page is very sensitive to dates.  Many teams are using the plan progression page in a scaled agile framework and have multiple teams working towards a release.  It is therefore necessary to ensure that each team is aligned on their start dates and release dates for their own release timeboxes

Features
Features need to have their schedule blocks populated appropriately.  This means ensuring they have a Release assigned as well as plan dates

User Stories
Stories should be assigned to a release as well

Stories should be assigned to an appropriate team

Capacity Plan
The Capacity Plan should tie everything together with the features planned as well as the projects/teams working on those projects.  The plan should reference the same timebox that the projects have assigned to them as shown above.
