  • How many days has this User Story been in this particular state?
  • Were there any delays?
  • Was there any re-work?
  • Who was responsible for the User Story?
  • When were Bugs and Tasks added and closed?
  • How much time was spent each day?
  • Were there any impediments?

Supported entities: User Stories, Tasks, Bugs, Features, Epics, Requests, Test Plan Runs. Not supported for Projects.
