All About Reporting
Track progress toward large feature work spanning multiple sprints
Epics help you get a handle on large areas of functionality and break down a large backlog so you can deliver chunks of value with each sprint. The new Epic Report enables the product owner and team to get a quick handle on progress both by number of story points and by number of issues, and keep a watch out for potential risk areas in unestimated issues.
Gain confidence over release dates
As you plan value across a larger release, keeping track of work across the entire project by Version is a big job. The new Versions tab on the Plan board helps you plan progress toward each release in individual sprints. Assign issues to a version via drag and drop.
The new Version Report will help you ensure the release is on track. The chart calculates your historical velocity per-day, and you can configure non-working days to ensure the projection is accurate. The closer you get to release date, the more confidence you’ll gain with what you’ll deliver and when.
Jira Dashboards keep everyone on the same page
New gadgets will make your information radiator even more powerful! The Sprint Burndown gadget helps your team keep an eye on progress, and the Days Remaining gadget reminds everyone just how close you are to delivering value to your customers.
Bonus: Configure the Detail View
