Step 1: Define 2 data sources. One with all Support tickets and the second one with the resolved ones upon first contact (i.e., with the first iteration).

Step 2: For the metric select Data Source B with the issues resolved on the first contact.

Step 3: Make sure that the date set in ‘Display by’ is ‘Resolved’, matching the one used for the ‘Date Range’ in the Data Source.

Step 4: Group issues by field ‘Supported by’. Alternatively, the field might be populated with the ‘Assignee’. If you are interested how to get the user that moved the issue from ‘Open’ to ‘In Progress’ from your workflow, or the one that has resolved the issue, please check the following article.

Step 5: Switch to cumulative mode that will accumulate the data from left to right on the chart with each week.

Step 6: Switch-on Target section and select ‘% of Total’ tab.

Step 7: Select Target results to be calculated per week (i.e., per x-axis item), which will allow to track the progression of the goal.

Step 8: Select Data Source: A with all Support tickets for the target metric and base for the percentage of total number of issues for the period.

Step 9: Set the target % of total value. In our case it is 3%. That will set goal as “At least 3% of total issues to be resolved upon the first contact”.

Step 10: From the ‘More Settings’ section enable the ‘Warning threshold’ that will color in Amber the results that are above the level of 50% of the target.
