Analyze & Report on Your Data

Lead and Cycle TimeUnderstand how long it takes to complete each work item, either from the point at which the work enters the board or from the point the work is started. This information can be used to determine where work is slowing down in your process.
Work DistributionUnderstand the distribution of work by team member, process step, type of work, the priority level of each work type and by a specific work type attribute. 
Assigned UserIdentify individuals or skill sets that are overburdened, understand key resource capacity, and see where additional resources might be needed. 
Cumulative Flow and Burn-UpSee how smoothly work flows through your process and determine if the team can complete its current workload by a particular date. 
Process EfficiencyMeasure when work in queue grows as a percentage of total work in progress (WIP). Determine where work is likely stuck in a queue and also investigate what can be done to get work flowing again. 
BurndownUnderstand if you’re on track to complete all planned work by the end of your sprint and see the impact of unplanned work. Helpful for teams practicing Scrum and Scrumban. 
ExceptionsIdentify work items in real time that are blocked, stale or delayed so that you can proactively intervene to keep key deliverables on track. 
Multi-board ExceptionsSee potential problems — including blocked, stale and delayed work items — across all of your boards in a single report.  
Planned Percent CompleteUnderstand how reliably your team hits planned delivery dates by seeing the percentage of work that has been completed early, on-time, and late. Helpful for teams who use planned finish dates to schedule their work.
