Example of a Burndown Chart.

For Burnup and Burndown cards, you can select multiple Sprints even if they aren't in the same Folder because the chart displays the total amount of work completed.

An image of a Velocity Chart. The graph has a spotted red line which shows the velocity of the chart thus far. One bar is shown which is made up of three different colors.

For Velocity cards, you can only select from Sprints within the same Folder because the chart displays your average amount of work completed for the time period you defined.
