View and understand the burnup chart
The Burnup Chart provides a visual representation of a sprint's completed work compared with its total scope. It offers insights on your project's progress, as well as offers warnings to help you maintain your project's health; you can instantly identify problems such as scope creep or a deviation from the planned project path.
Click Projects in the navigation bar and select the relevant project
Click Reports, then select Burnup Chart.
To choose a different sprint or a different measurement for the vertical axis, click the drop-down menus.
You can view the Burnup Chart for individual sprints in your project, meaning you can see the amount of work completed vs the amount of work remaining on a day-to-day basis.
Before you begin
The Burnup Chart only applies to Scrum boards
Story Points on sub-tasks are not included in the Burnup Chart. (Only Story Points on parent tasks are included.)
Understanding the Burnup Chart
The vertical axis represents the amount of work and can be measured in different ways such as story points, issue count, or estimates. The horizontal axis represents time in days.
The distance between the lines on the chart is the amount of work remaining. When the project has been completed, the lines will meet.
Examine the 'Work scope' line to identify any scope creep.
