Dashboard Panels

Extended History Report


This Panel allows the user to view the results in the Line/Bar/Stack charts in two aspects i.e. Accumulated and Non-Accumulated formats. It allows the user to refine the panel results based on work items Filter and aggregation type. It helps in accessing and controlling the digital information that we need to execute or analyze a project effectively and efficiently.

Say we have Defects work item, the data count of defects for ‘This Year’, all the defects less than or equal to the date e.g. how many New defects are there on a particular date starting from this year i.e. 01-01-2021, so we count all defects with ‘New’ status on date 13-08-2021 (the report is checked). On the same date, if multiple time status has been changed then the last status will be considered as defects status.

Accumulated check – It groups all the data till the selected period for a particular Status.

Accumulated uncheck – It does not group and shows the data for a particular Status at a particular point in time.
