Common questions

How is the lead/reaction/cycle time calculated?

The metrics are calculated as follows:

  1. Reaction time starts when an issue is created
  2. Reaction time stops when the issue is assigned to a person. At the same time cycle time is started.
  3. Cycle time is stopped when the issue is closed or the pull request merged.
  4. Lead time = reaction time + cycle time.

Are weekends included in the cycle time calculation?

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

Can I track pull requests?

Yes. By default we include both issues and pull requests in the metrics but you can use the filtering feature to exclude one of them. 

How is Not started / In progress / Done defined?

By default, the states are defined as

Not started = Open
In progress = Assigned
Done = Closed, Merged

When you create a dashboard, you have the ability to adjust the mapping.

How does the milestone burnup chart work?

The milestone burnup chart takes all the issues that are assigned to the selected milestone, and assumes that to be your backlog. Then it checks your team's velocity and calculates a forecast date when your backlog should be empty if no new tasks are added. Follow these steps to set up the milestone burnup chart, or learn more from the Milestone Burnup FAQ

I'm using ZenHub/Waffle/HuBoard, can I still use Screenful?

Yes, as long as your extension keeps the issue data within GitHub, you'll get a nice dashboard. However, since we pull the data via the GitHub API, you won't see the data that is stored outside GitHub. 

 

Can I consolidate data from multiple repositories into one screenful dashboard?

Yes, you can add more repositories in the dashboard settings. Learn how to track multiple repositories from the Getting Started guide. 

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

Input https://app.screenful.com into your phone browser, and once the page is loaded, save the page as a shortcut icon into your home screen by selecting "Add to home screen". Next time you can launch it quickly by tapping the icon.

Do you provide desktop clients?

We have native desktop clients available for Windows and Mac. 

How do I set this up on a big screen?

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

Can I mix Screenful dashboards with content of my own when running in TV mode?

Yes, there are 3rd party apps that allow you to schedule and organise different kind of content to your screens. These range from simple browser plugins to digital signage solutions such as ScreenCloud or truDigital.

Can I embed some of these charts into my intranet?

You can embed any individual screen into an iFrame. Learn how to construct an embeddable URL from our online guide

Why is the number of repositories limited to 10?

Importing multiple repositories from GitHub API can be slow and therefore some limit is needed to keep the loading times reasonable. Just let us know if you need more repositories.

How often data is updated on my screens?

All screens are updated once an hour. You can trigger update manually by clicking Update now at Settings ► Integrations ► GitHub
