Accessing This Report
- Reports > Effort Trend (Member/Team Report section)
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.

The data in this chart typically trends up over time because the amount of Effort increases over time.
Each bar represents the unit of time specified (days, weeks, or months).
The height of the bar indicates the amount of accumulated Effort on the date indicated.
