Status overview

Here’s where you can view your project’s overall progress on work items based on the statuses in your workflow. Only items that have been completed in the last two weeks will appear in Done. Learn more about transitioning your items through a workflow.

To see your team’s progress in more detail in the board view, you’ll only be able to view your teams work items and not subtasks. Currently, the board view does not show subtasks in it’s columns. You can navigate to the list or timeline view to see your item’s subtasks. Learn more about creating subtasks.

If you don’t have any work items for your business project, you’ll need to create some to get the most value out of this graph.

Priority breakdown

Here’s where you can get a holistic view of how work is prioritized within your business project. It’s helpful to prioritize work to make sure that your team is focusing on the most important work first. You’ll only be able to view priorities for your project’s if you select a priority for each work item. Learn more about defining issue priorities.

To view all work items by priority, you can group your items by priority in the list view. Learn more about how to group your items by priority.

Team workload

Here’s where you can view your team's current workload at a glance. Assign work to the right person in your project team to have visibility over what each team member is currently working on. Make sure work is equally and correctly distributed across your team to ensure your project is properly resourced.

If you have no work assigned, you can assign items to the correct team member by editing the assignee field in the list view. Learn more about editing items in the list view.

If you don’t have anyone in your business project yet, invite your teammates to you join you. Easily select the invite icon at the top of your navigation to add people to your project.
