Cycle graph

The graph displays the progress you've made in your cycle.

Overview

Cycle graphs autogenerate once a cycle has begun and update every hour.

Where to find cycle graphs

When viewing a specific cycle, open the cycle sidebar with Cmd/Ctrl I to view the graph.

From the Cycles view, you'll also see the graph belonging to the current cycle.

How to read a cycle graph

The gray line displays the total scope of your cycle.

The blue dotted line represents the "target"—an even distribution of the total estimated points within the cycle over the remaining days in the cycle. Note that it flattens over weekends due to the expectation people do not work during weekend. If your progress stays above that line, it is expected you will complete everything within the cycle.

The yellow line depicts the number of issues started.

The solid blue line shows how may issues have been completed.

As you hover and move over the graph, you can see the stats reflected for the day in which you are hovering.

You can see how much scope (by estimate points) has been added or removed since the start of the cycle.

Understanding scope

In general, scope will display the sum of estimates applied to an issue. This number can change based on the options selected in Settings > Team > General > Estimates, where you have the option to Count un-estimated issues so issues without estimates will be added to the total scope.

Assign completed issues to previous cycles

We allow for completed issues to be added to previous cycles to account for issues that were completed in the previous cycle, but wasn't marked as completed before the cycle closed.

  • We do not update the "Scope" after cycle closure since automations generally move all the incomplete issues to the following cycle.
  • We update the "Completed" status to account for
