  • How quickly is your team delivering on assignments?

Metrics included in the app:

  • All Stories

  • Blocked vs. Completed Tasks

  • Completed Stories

  • Iteration Status

  • Iterations

  • Open Defect Priority

  • Open Defects

  • Open Defects Severity

  • Perfect vs. Defective

  • Planned Velocity

  • Remaining vs. Estimated

  • Story Plan Estimation

  • Story Status

  • Story Velocity Points

  • Task Status

Card Description

Data Name

Defects: What iterations are causing the most defects?

Open Defect Priority

OPEN DEFECT PRIORITY
Tracks the total number of "Open" defects along with their respective priority. Focus on the top priority open defects.

Defect

Defects: What iterations are causing the most defects?

Open Defects

OPEN DEFECTS
Shows all open defects during a given period. Use this table as a quick reference to take action on open defects.

Defect

Defects: What iterations are causing the most defects?

Open Defects Severity

OPEN DEFECTS SEVERITY
Tracks the number of "Open" defects along with their respective severity during the period. Analyze the number of open defects in each area to determine where to best prioritize resources.
