Within Teamwork, you can add a task burndown panel to your custom dashboards based on a specific task list.

Note: This feature is available on per-user Premium/Grow subscriptions and above.

In the Home area of your site, select the Dashboards tab from the horizontal navigation menu.

Panel settings:

  • Name
  • Project
  • Task list - burndown panels are populated based on task lists so one must be selected.
  • Start date 
  • End date - set the final date you want all the work completed by:
    • Milestone linked to task list - based on the milestone attached to the task list.
    • Latest due date - based on the latest due date of a task in the task list.
    • Custom - pick a custom end date.
  • Burn rate - calculate the burn rate using:
    • Number of tasks completed.
    • Estimated and logged time.

Once the panel has been created, you will see a dotted line highlighting your ideal burnrate.

The blue line represents the current burnrate trajectory based on work completed so far. Hovering over the chart will show you the burn details for each point.

When the actual burn line crosses over the ideal burn rate, this indicates that based on current work completion rate, things are off track for meeting the end date.
