How to use the User Dashboard
The user dashboard gives you the ability to add various widgets in order to analyze your project or projects. Various widgets can be used to perform a statistical analysis of the entire project. A widget can be added to the main area of the dashboard by pressing the Customize dashboard button. Doing so will create a window below in which you can enter values for the concerned widget. Entering and saving values will create the graph for you. Multiple graphs can be shown at once, side by side, in the User Dashboard section. There are two options for creating a User Dashboard,Personal and Shared. Personal dashboards are for use by a single individual. Shared dashboards can be seen by more than one persons.
The different types of graphs that can be created are:
Sprint Burn Down
This graph shows you two statistics, the number of completed/accepted story points (red line), and the estimated rate of completion of story points (blue line). The burn down can be against Estimation Hours & Story points or against Tasks & Issue effort.
This graph gives you a view of when a specific user story was added, and how many user points it has after the start of the sprint, so you can understand the change in scope of sprint contents.
User Story Component Report
This graph gives you an overview of how many user stories there are in each component.
Issues in User Story by each Sprint
This graph gives you an overview of how many issues there are in each user story within a sprint.
This graph gives you a breakdown of how many tasks are assigned to a user in a project. The status of the tasks (new, in progress or done) is also displayed.
Issues in Special Tag by Sprint
This graph shows you the number of issues in a sprint that have special tags assigned to them.
This table shows you a breakdown of the status of all open issues in any project.
Open Issues – Real Time status
This table gives you a real time analysis of Open issues over a period of time, including a One month low amount and a One month high amount.
This graphic dial shows you the current progress of a release.
Issue Trend Report
This graph shows you a detailed trend analysis of all issues over a period of time.
Recent Sprints (story points)
This graph shows you the amount of story points in each sprint.
This graph gives you an overview of Effort logged and Effort spent in sprints against number of hours spent.
This graph gives you a display of Sprint Velocity. It also gives you related statistics for an in-depth analysis.
This pie chart shows you the status of all issues (New, In progress, or Resolved).
Issues assigned to Users
This graph gives you a detailed view of number of issues assigned to project users.
This graph shows you the progress of releases over a period of time. This graph tracks how much work you have completed over a period of time. Work that has been completed can be considered as ‘burned points’, therefore it shows you the accumulated burned points over a period of time.
Sprint Burn Down
This graph is the reverse of a burn up graph. By analyzing it, you can track how much work remains in a sprint backlog, understand how quickly your team has completed tasks, and predict when your team will achieve the goal or goals of the sprint.
