This feature is available in Ultimate edition only.
The Analytics Agile Earned Value dashboard panel enables the comparison of targeted, or baselined, work in a project to what is actually planned and what has been delivered in each iteration. The chart also includes a bar graph indicating the velocity in each sprint. Use the Agile Earned Value panels as an agile environment alternative to traditional Earned Value reporting.
Because each data point in this panel represent a Sprint/Iteration, the panel requires a schedule. If the project does not contain a schedule, the panel will not display any results.
