The chart filters your data from groups. To create a new sprint, create a new group.
To add tasks to your sprint, just add new items to the group.
By adding the chart to your board, the start date will be set on the current day by default.
The start date can be changed anytime.
On reload the last used settings will be displayed. This is true for all settings.
Sprints can have four different time spans, all durations will begin on the day you set the start date and will last the following intervals:
1 week or 7 days
2 weeks or 14 days
3 weeks or 21 days
4 weeks or 28 days
As a general setting “Done” will be the default indicator for a completed task. Other indicators can be added by separating them with a comma or replace them in general.
The chart will count your sprint either by tasks, which are represented by items or story points, which will be represented by the numeric value you enter in the Story Points column.
On demand you can create or choose another Status column. The chart accepts “Status” or “Text” columns.
You can use a premade “Numbers” column or create a new one via settings
By toggling, the chart will visualize weekends or weekends and holidays for a specific country. The variation depends on what you select in the “Non-working days” setting.
Currently there are 3 options:
Currently, when you move an item to a completed status, you have to re pick your sprint or any other setting. Or just reload the page in order to visualize your change.
No problem, just move it back to the status you need. There are no penalties.
The only truly required column is the status column, which is there by default. In case you don’t use story points or some custom numeric values which can be represented by a “Numbers” column for your items/tasks, you don’t need to set it up or use it.
There is no difference between creating columns via settings or directly on the board. Just keep the type of the columns in mind when creating a column on the board.
For Story Points, you need a “Numbers” column and for the Status column, you can either choose a “Status” column or a “Text” column.
You can give your columns any name you want/have/need to.
Naming or renaming only works on the board.
Any language is compatible with the Burndown Chart. Keep in mind to adjust either your Status column or “The status of a completed task” setting.
The time zone is adjusted to the geographical location of the user.
