Jira Sprint Dashboard

 

The Jira Sprint Dashboard Template for SAP Analytics Cloud offers a comprehensive overview of sprint activities. It allows the selection of sprints for focused analysis and provides a mechanism to filter sprints based on their start and end dates. One of its key features is a detailed tracking tool that exhibits the number of tasks completed alongside original and remaining estimates. This information can be viewed at task and user levels, facilitating workload management and productivity monitoring. Furthermore, the dashboard classifies and enumerates the issues encountered during the sprint, offering insights into recurring problems and their impact on the project timeline.
