Portfolio Item Bubble Chart Report


This feature is available in Ultimate edition only.



The Portfolio Item Bubble Chart separates portfolio items by cost, value, risk, and assessed priority. It can be focused on any portfolio item type within the selected project so you can compare top-level business initiatives or lower-level features.

Use this chart to identify the portfolio items (or development efforts) that provide the most value to the business.
