Sprint Cycle time cards (Legacy)

Use Sprint Cycle time cards to visualize how long on average it takes a task to be completed after it's started.

Custom Sprint Durations cannot be used with legacy Sprint Dashboard cards. If you need to use Custom Sprint Durations with Sprint reporting cards, switch to our new Sprint Velocity, Burnup, and Burndown cards.

What you'll need

  • Sprint Cards are available on the Business Plan and above.
  • The Dashboards ClickApp is enabled in every new Workspace by default. A Workspace owner or admin can disable the ClickApp.
  • Guests can be invited to specific Dashboards with view-only permissions.

Create or edit a Cycle time card

Cycle time is measured in one of two ways:

  • If you're using the Not Started ClickApp, the card calculates the start from the moment a task enters any status in the Active Status Group.
  • If you're not using the Not Started ClickApp, the card considers the first status in your Active Status Group as Not Started, and any other task in the Active Status Group counts as the start of cycle time.
  • Tasks in an Active status won't be included on the card until they are closed.

You can choose from the following settings:

  • Source: Choose one or more Sprints or Lists. 
  • Time range: You can include data from the year, month, week, set a custom range of dates, or a rolling period between 1 and 365 days. Select a frequency by days, weeks, or months. This is your x-axis.

    Learn more about the Time range and rolling period settings.

  • Sample period: When Sample period is available on a card, it's used with Time range. 

    For example, you select a Time range of This week and by days and a sample period of Last 2 days. The chart will display all tasks created this week, by days. The data points will reflect the Lead time for all of the tasks as of today and yesterday.

  • Status group counted as completion: Choose whether you want the Closed or Done status to represent completion. 
  • Include subtasks: Choose to include subtasks in the data.
  • Include archived: Choose to include archived tasks in the data.
  • Include Tasks in Multiple Lists: Choose to include Tasks in Multiple Lists in the data.
  • Include Subtasks in Multiple Lists: Choose to include Subtasks in Multiple Lists in the data.
  • Filter: Add additional filters to further adjust the scope of your card.
