Workitem Trend Report

This feature is available in all editions.



The Workitem Trend (formerly called the Release Estimate Trend Report) report shows changes in the total amount of Estimate, the amount completed (closed), and the amount remaining (open) within a release/project over a period of time. 


The total amount remaining should trend downward over time, while the amount completed should trend upward. Changes to the total estimates occur because new items are added/removed or existing estimates change.


  • All VersionOne trend reports require at least two data points. If not enough data is available, the report may be blank.  Depending on the duration you select in the filters, at least one complete period of data must be available to draw a trend line. When selecting days, this means that the minimum duration is actually 2 days, which will include 2 data points.

  • Your Show Weekend report settings may affect how much data is selected.  For example, if you choose two days as duration and one day is a Saturday or Sunday, and you have elected to not Show Weekends, then you may not have sufficient data to show a trend.
