Totals

Introduction

Totals will help you plan and monitor the execution of your Timeboxes. You can also use the past data to analyze your teams' performance in-depth.

You have various indicators and aggregations at your disposal. Once you enable them, progress bars will appear in your Timeboxes.

The indicators displayed at the team and unassigned levels include data relevant to a selected team or the unassigned row only. The aggregated data is displayed in each Timebox header.

Enabling the Totals

To enable the features, click on View > Totals > Select the type and aggregation option.
