Super Customizable Release Chart

Chart types

You can select several different types of charts to view release data. Click one of the chart icons to change the view:

  • Stacked Bar
  • Bar
  • Line
  • Area
  • Burndown

Data options

Below the Chart Type section, you can control what data is used to draw the chart.

Schedule states

Select the checkbox next to each Schedule State field value to display on the chart. Next to the schedule state name is a drop-down menu to select what color the value uses. The Trend checkbox to the right of each schedule state draws a line on the chart based on past daily statistics, showing you the rate at which work is being moved into that state.

Ideal lines

Select one of the checkboxes in the Ideal Lines section to display a line that shows the ideal rate of completing work during the course of the release. The line calculates the total amount of story or task work scheduled in the release, and divides that figure by the total number of days.

This is helpful during the middle of an release to see if your team is completing and accepting work at a rate sufficient to finish by the release end date.

The Burndown To Do option trends downward left to right, while the Burnup Accepted option trends in the opposite direction.

Unit options

Three different options are available for displaying the amount of work in the chart. Select one of the radio buttons to change the scope of the y-axis:

  • Story: Draws the chart using the Plan Estimate field of user stories
  • Task: Draws the chart using the Task Estimate field of tasks
  • To Do: Draws the chart using the To Do field of tasks

Note: When the Burndown chart type is selected, the unit type is defaulted to To Do, as a burndown displays both remaining to do task hours and accepted story estimate points in the same chart.

Data table

Select the Show Data Table checkbox to display a day-by-day breakdown of work in each schedule state in a table format. All schedule states will display. Data in the table will adjust according to your unit option selection.

Additional features

  • Use the Release drop-down menu to view other iterations in your project
  • Print the chart from the Actions drop-down menu
  • Use the Auto Height setting to automatically adjust the vertical space of the app based on the amount of visible data
