Burndown charts are invaluable in project management and agile software development, offering a host of advantages. In the context of Jira, the Performance Trend gadget, in tandem with the Multi Metric Trend and Multi Metric Combined gadgets, empowers users to craft custom burndown charts.
This is achieved by selecting the ‘Declining Mode‘ for displaying trends, allowing you to establish a starting point and zero for the ending point.
Moreover, the Performance Trend gadget introduces a ‘Target‘ feature, enabling you to transform any chart into a powerful performance management tool. This versatile tool finds application in a range of Jira reports, including evaluating ‘Budget vs. Actual Cost of Work,’ ‘Sprint Burndown’ report, or comparing ‘Original Estimate vs. Work Logged Time’ report.
