Shows the total number of tasks and cumulative remaining tasks in a burndown chart
- [Voiceover] We now have our Task Overview report,…but it would be good to have a visual of the totals…and we'd like to have that by week instead of by day…right now in the chart area.…So we're going to click in the chart area…and in the chart area we're going to change…the format of the date range on the bottom into weeks.…So we'll go to our Field List…and select, under Time category we'll select Edit.…Here we'll change that into Weeks.…And as you can see, we have multiple selections…under the date format,…but we'll select Weeks.…
And in the format of those weeks…we'd like it to show up as Week 1, Week 2, Week 3.…However, the short version of that.…So W1, W2, W3.…And we'll select that.…Now we can press OK, which will apply this format…to that time scale within the chart.…Now, much easier to read than being by day.…However, we'd like to also see the data set…below this particular chart.…So under the add elements option,…which is on the right-hand side of that chart,…we'll select Add elements.…
Here we can add in various type elements…
