What does Pivot Report consist of and why

Pivot Report has very few parts to cover but those are important ones. Let’s start at the top of the report and move all the way to the bottom.

Pretty common. On the left, you have the name of the report or source (e.g. issue summary or board name the report is based on). On the right, you see action buttons.

Here’s a list of all tab types available:

  • Issue Structure

That’s why Pivot Report offers various options to display progress. Even if you are using custom fields for esimations: Pivot Report Progress

Slices slice (sic!) issues into sub-groups for better understanding of the scope in the report.
