The graph shows you the progress you're making toward completing your project and estimates when you'll complete it.
Project graphs autogenerate once you've started a project and we've collected enough project issue data for them to be created. They update hourly so your graphs are always up to date based on the latest issue activity.

Where to find it
From the project view, open the project sidebar Cmd/Ctrl I to view the graph. If it's not there, that means that we have not generated it yet.
How to read it
A gray line shows you the project scope and how it has changed over time, giving you an easy way to see (and mitigate) scope creep.
We have separate lines for Started and Completed issues. This lets you see exactly what is being worked on and what is done.
You can see how a project’s issues break down by assignee and label, as well as what percentage of issues in those categories have been completed. You can hover over any assignee or label and click "filter" to show related issues.
You can also hover over the graph to see the exact values of scoped, completed and started issues over time.
If you have a target date set, it'll show up as a red vertical line.
We show an estimated completion date for the project as long as you've moved it to the Started status. You'll see the purple line for completed issues continues on with a dotted line to the predicted completion date. We calculate it using past issue velocity and issues remaining in the project, weighing the more recent activity more heavily.
