The KiteSuite Dashboard provides a visual overview of key project aspects, including project initiation details, sprint counts, task completion statuses, and overall project progress. It features graphs for tasks by priority, type, assignees, and creation date, aiding in easy analysis. The Dashboard supports different project templates (Scrum, Kanban, Business), offering insights tailored to each template type. Users can toggle and hover over graph bars for detailed information, ensuring comprehensive project management and tracking.

In this article we will discover KiteSuite Dashboard functionality in detail to easy access project information.

Overview of the Dashboard

Items & Sprints

The Dashboard furnishes counts for both items and sprints encompassing the project’s entirety. You have the ability to view the complete count of items within the project. Furthermore, within this total, you can readily discern the number of items that have been successfully completed, as well as those that remain incomplete.

Overall Project Progress Graph

The graphical representation of the project’s overall progress is a centerpiece of the Dashboard. Leveraging the project’s status features, such as TODO, IN PROGRESS, DONE, and custom statuses, this graph provides a visual depiction of how items are distributed across different statuses.

The graph also illustrates the percentage distribution of items in each status category, affording an instant and insightful understanding of the project’s advancement.

How can you read other dashboards’ graphs?

The project’s template type influences the remaining graphs. In KiteSuite, there are three distinct template options: Scrum, Kanban, and Business. Now, let’s delve into an in-depth explanation of the graphs.

Task by Priority

This specific bar graph visually presents details about tasks organized by their levels of importance, which we call “Priority.” This feature remains the same in all types of project templates.

The graph has two columns: one is colored purple and shows the total number of tasks in the project, and the other is blue, indicating the tasks that have been finished.

On the up-and-down side (vertical) of the graph, you see the count of tasks. On the left-and-right side (horizontal), you find different levels of priority. For example, it tells you how many tasks with ‘Low’ importance have been completed from the whole bunch of tasks. This helps us understand the progress of different types of tasks in the project.
