Milestone Burnup Chart

When you create a dashboard, you have access to the Milestone Burnup screen. This chart allows you to see how much work is done vs. how much work is left, as well as a forecast based on your team’s past velocity.

At the bottom-right section, you can see the trend of the amount of work completed per calendar week from the past 10 weeks (1).
