      Problem description

      This evening I tried several ways to get cycle time metrics in a next-gen kanban project. However, none were really successful:

      • the reports section pretty much lacks any kanban metric reports. It only has two scrum metric reports (velocity and burndown charts
      • In the dashboard I tried several chart gadgets:
        • Average time in status:
          • hard to read due to it being displayed as a line chart, it would be easier to read as a grouped bar chart with groups per day/month/year, where the bars within the group indicate a state, and the y-axis contains the average.
          • I found the status multiselect somewhat unusable. For the statuses displayed came from all projects, even though the filter I entered earlier only selected stories from a single project. In turn, this lead to multiple done statuses being displayed in the multi-select. It would be easier if the statuses would be derived from the issues captured by the project selected or issues returned from the filter.
        • Two dimensional filter statistics
          • Does a better job with regard to status, than 'average time in status.'
          • Unfortunately lacks an average time spent in board status.

      Possible solutions

      • add the control chart for next-gen projects
      • enhance some of the gadgets above to visualise clearly how long, on average, issues spent in a certain column on the kanban board.
      • add a new cycle time gadget for dashboards
