Dashboard and analysis tools
Agile Manager provides you with a variety of analysis tools. These include:
Note: If your widgets are not displayed on the Dashboard, click Get Started.
To use the dashboard, open the Dashboard page. To learn more about dashboard widgets, see Commonly used widgets.
What do you want to do?
Click Favorites, expand the Public folder, and select a dashboard for your role – Release Manager, Scrum Master, or Developer. If you use the Storyboard, select the Kanban Dashboard to track the progress of items on the storyboard.
Tip: Some graphs display data based on the current release, sprint, and team. Make sure the correct release, sprint, and team are selected at the top of the page.
- Make sure the correct dashboard is selected. The dashboard name is displayed alongside the Favorites label.
- Click Add Widgets. The Add Dashboard Widgets dialog box opens.
- Choose a category, or type a string in the search box to find a widget.
- Select a widget, and click Add to Dashboard. The widget is added to the bottom row of the current dashboard.
After you have designed a dashboard, you can save it as a favorite. You can then return to the same dashboard in the future. A favorite stores the graphs and their layout on the page.
Select Favorites > Add to Favorites.
Favorites in the Public folder can be accessed by all users.
By default, only Site Administrators and Workspace Administrators can create, update, and delete public favorites.
Workspace administrators can set permissions to allow Team Members to create public dashboard favorites and widgets. For details, see Permissions configuration.
Agile Manager provides an array of predefined graphs in different categories. In addition to these, you can create custom graphs, save them to the widget gallery, and include them in any dashboard.
You can create two types of custom graphs:
Provides a snapshot view of backlog items (user stories, defects, or both), according to criteria that you specify. For example, you can create a pie chart of user story statuses for a specific sprint, or a column chart of requirements assigned to users, grouped by status.
Summary graphs can also display data defined in custom fields. Add them to your custom summary graph by selecting the custom field in the Filter or Display wizard pages, as needed.
Displays the development of backlog item data over time, according to criteria that you specify. For example, you can track the number of user stories remaining in a team's backlog on any given day during a sprint.
Additionally, define the data used for the X- and Y-axis, and how data is grouped.
Custom Agile graphs can show custom Single Value List and Numeric fields defined for user stories and defects, which are enabled for tracking.
For more details, see Manage custom fields.
To create a custom graph:
Click Add Widgets. The Add Dashboard Widgets dialog box opens.
Click Create Custom Graph. The New Custom Graph wizard opens.
Select a graph type, and follow the wizard steps. Save your graph to the gallery, in a private category to access it again later, or in a public category to enable others to view it too.
You can change settings of graphs displayed in the dashboard. The basic settings you can adjust include: Title, Description, Release, Team, and Granularity.
- Hover over the title banner of a graph, click the down arrow , and select Configure Settings.
- Change the settings, and click Save.
Tip: By selecting the Context Sensitive value in the Release, Sprint or Team fields, you can force the graph to display data according to the release, sprint, and team selected at the top of the page.
