Common questions

How is lead/reaction/cycle time calculated?

The metrics are calculated as follows:

  1. Reaction time starts when a story is moved from the icebox to the backlog.
  2. Reaction time stops when the story is moved from from the backlog to the current sprint. At the same time cycle time is started.
  3. Cycle time is stopped when the story is accepted.
  4. Lead time = reaction time + cycle time.

The lead time metrics are determined by the task's state. The time it spends in the icebox (state=unscheduled) does not count towards the reaction time. This holds regardless of how the state transition happened. 

Weekends are included in the lead times.

Are weekends included in the cycle time calculation?

At the moment weekends are always included in the cycle time, as are non-business hours.

Is there a way to adjust velocity tracking to be based on story points?

By default the release forecast screen uses task count. To change it to story points go to the release forecast slide, open settings and set the burn unit to story points.

Why is my Screenful milestone forecast date different than the Pivotal one?

The forecasted completion date can be different than in Pivotal tracker analytics because the velocity calculation is a bit different. In Screenful the velocity is the average velocity of past up to ten whole calendar weeks. If there are five or more calendar weeks of history then the smallest and largest velocity are omitted from the average. 

Why does the velocity shown in Screenful differ from the velocity shown in Pivotal Tracker? 

The Screenful velocity graph shows whole calendar weeks while Pivotal uses iterations, which may have a different length or starting time. 

Do you take into account the time estimates in tasks?

Yes. You can select to use story points instead of task count in your Sprint burndown chart and the Release Forecast chart. You can change the unit at Screens-->Settings tab in the setup menu. 

Do you take into account the release markers in Pivotal Tracker?

Yes. You can choose which release you want to track by selecting the release from the drop down menu in the milestone burnup settings. 

Is there a way to consolidate data from multiple projects on one screenful dashboard?

At the moment it's one dashboard per Pivotal Tracker project. For example tracking three projects means you'd have three dashboard and thus would be using the Pro plan.

How is ahead / behind target calculated in the Current Sprint screen?

The current sprint view only looks at the tasks in the current iteration. It calculates a velocity for the iteration (number of points completed divided by the number of days passed in the iteration) and then extrapolates how many days it would take to complete the remaining points with that velocity. The behind target / ahead target value shown is the difference between that extrapolation and the actual number of days left in the sprint.

How do I view these screens in my mobile/tablet?

Input your dashboard URL into your phone browser, and once the page is loaded, save the page as a shortcut icon into your home screen so that the next time you can access it quickly by tapping the icon. In Android devices, you can do it by selecting "Add to home screen" from the menu. 

How do I set this up on a big screen?

Read the online guide about the radiator mode and tips for setting up the hardware from our blog. 

How often data is updated on my screens?

All screens are updated once an hour.
